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: Steward’s inquiry and jockeys objection. The # 2 Justin Phillip (J Velazquez) claims that in deep stretch the # 8 Private Zone (M Pedroza) comes out causing him to loose stride. After reviewing the video the Stewards disallowed the claim of foul and the race is official as is.
