October 7, 2022

Keeneland Race 5

A Stewards Inquiry was posted involving the top 2 finishers and, in addition an objection was lodged by the rider of second place #11 “Jag Warrior” (Martin Garcia) alleging interference by the unofficial winner #12 “Olga Isabel” (Joel Rosario) near the ¼ pole. After reviewing the race replay and interviewing the riders, the stewards determined that #12 drifted out approaching the ¼ pole, carrying #11 out and causing him to lose ground. For the interference, #12 was disqualified from first and placed second, behind #11.

Official order of finish: 11-12-3-4

 

Keeneland Race 9

A Stewards Inquiry was posted involving second place #2 “Chop Chop” (Joel Rosario), third place #4 “Raging Sea” (Jose Ortiz) and fourth place #5 “Xigera” (Joseph Talamo) and, in addition objections were lodged by both the rider and trainer of #5 alleging interference by the rider of #4 near the 1/16 pole. After reviewing the race replay and interviewing the riders, the stewards determined that #4 bore out and made contact with #5, causing her to check sharply to avoid clipping the heels of #2 to her outside. The stewards also determined that #2 maintained a straight course. For the interference, #4 was disqualified from third and placed fourth, behind #5. 

Official order of finish: 1-2-5-4
