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 Decisions - August 17, 2011
RACE 8: Steward’s Inquiry – shortly after the start, # 9 My Nan Nell (I. Ortiz, Jr.), in tight quarters, clips heels of # 13 Money Magnet (R. Curatolo). My Nan Nell bobbles and the rider is unseated. In the judgment of the stewards, the incident was not the result of any single horse’s or jockey’s actions, and the race was declared official as is.
