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. Click on the links below to read those explanations.

Race Decisions - May 19, 2012

RACE 4: Steward’s Inquiry and Jockey’s Objection: Alan Garcia, the rider of # 5 Inflation Target, lodged an objection against the winner, # 3 Street Brawl (R. Napravnik) for alleged interference at the top of the stretch.  After passing the ¼ pole, # 3 does shift out briefly causing # 5 to alter course.   In the judgment of the stewards, the incident did not alter the finish of the race.  The objection was disallowed and the race made Official as is.
