The Stewards' Corner

Welcome to the Stewards’ Corner, where you will find explanations of the decisions that our stewards make on race days. Directly following any decision they make having to do with the official order of finish, including inquiries and objections, the stewards – one appointed by The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA), one appointed by the New York State Gaming Commission, and one appointed by The Jockey Club (TJC) – provide an explanation of what happened and the reason for their decision.

Race Decisions - April 17, 2013


Race 6: Stewards Inquiry into the stretch run:  In the vicinity of the 3/16 pole, # 6 Coach A. J. (C. Velasquez) shies from the rider’s crop, ducking in sharply hitting the portable rail and causing the rider to take a strong hold and was eased. No other horses were involved in the incident.  After reviewing the video the race was declared official as is.
