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 4, 2014
Race 9: Steward’s Inquiry into the start: # 5 Canela Rose (E. Emmanuel) was fractious at the start, throwing her head as the doors opened, and breaking far behind the field. Canela Rose’s poor start was the result of her own behavior. The race was declared official as is.
