Race Decisions - July 13, 2012
RACE 7: Jockeys objection from the 4th place finisher # 1 Magical Season (R. Napravnik) for alleged interference inside the 1/16 pole by 3rd place finisher # 2 Thomas Hill (A Lezcano). After reviewing the video the #2 drifts out approaching the wire causing # 1 to steady and in the judgment of the stewards this incident did alter the finish of the race. The race is Official as is.
