Stewards inquiry and jockeys objection lodged by the 3rd place finisher #4 Brewing (Luis Reyes) against #5 Buckwellspent (Pablo Fragoso) for alleged interference leaving the starting gate and through the stretch. The #4 Brewing broke slowly while #5 Buckwellspent broke inward taking his position making contact with the #3 All About Ashly. After speaking to the riders involved and viewing the video it was determined by the stewards that there was no interference through the stretch and the incident at the start did not warrant any further action. Order of finish 188.8.131.52
With regard to interference, New York is a “Category 2” state, meaning that Commission rules provide that if the interferer is guilty of causing interference and such interference in the judgment of the Stewards has altered the finish of the race, then the interferer is placed behind the offended horse.
The Stewards consider whether the riders of the horse or horses that are offended continue to give effort to the finish of the race.
The Stewards also consider whether the offending jockey acted in a willful or careless manner while interfering with another horse or jockey, for which the interferer may be disqualified, i.e., placed last or unplaced in the order of finish. For example, if an offending jockey acts in a dangerous manner, exhibits extremely improper riding or impedes several horses, the Stewards may disqualify the offending horse without regard to the specific effect of the foul on the order of finish.
