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 7: Stewards Inquiry in the vicinity of the 3/8 pole # 3 Bigger is Bettor (E.Castro) clips the heals of # 8 Ground Force (J.Ortiz) and then stumbles unseating his rider and # 2 Good Karma (M.Luzzi) takes up trying to avoid the fallen rider and horse. After reviewing the video the race is official as is.
