It was basically a L-shaped trap rather than a rail, and the 6 couldn't get away from it. The 8 did nothing wrong, and if there had been a rail, or a way to cordon off the pole, nothing would have happened. To punish the 8 for that is a joke.

It looked like the 8 shifted in like 1 inch, but i would imagine that if you watch all the headons you will see plenty of horses shift in, also, another factor is that the 6 is a head case horse, that was also not something that was factored in apparently.

I had no stake in the outcome, but I think that was a terrible DQ in R7 at TP. the 4 was never going to be better than 3rd, and the 7 was always going to be the winner. Don't see any way that cost a placing.

The 4 was never beating the 7, but she did have a theoretical chance to beat the 6 who was hitting the wall a bit. The 4 was green while going up and down and hanging on the wrong lead, the jock on the 4 obviously overreacted, it was highly unlikely the 4 was finishing anywhere but 3rd and the only reason she switched leads is because the jock grabbed her up.

Not a DQ i would have made.

I had the 21/1 in the 7th at Turfway Park last night. Complete bush league. The comes across 4 paths down the stretch and gets approved for a DQ on the ? I thought they were joking, yet they kept looking at it and looking at it for 15 minutes, and sure enough they DQ the and place him 3rd.

There was no way the was catching the , and it was highly likely the doesn't even get past the in the final 50 yards of the race.

And of course all I have is a W/P wager on the and get completely shut out of a 21/1 shot that wins by daylight.

At least I came back with the dominating gate to wire win by the Fioretti in the 8th at 16/1 to get some consolation, but damn do I feel cheated.

Because SRU kept starting new ones after this one was posted. Apparently, the guy who can dig up threads from 1963 couldn't locate this one.

Sometimes a specific track and specific stewards need to have their very own thread, with all the trimmings. Lumping them all here defeats the purpose of "Calling out" decisions that their state government and federal law enforcement might want to know about. I'm pretty sure stewards can't just do what they want, and if they appear to be "doing what they want" i'm sure local law enforcement would want to know and its much easier to find with its own.......drumroll please....unique thread!

Hopefully this thread will gain some steam so law enforcement knows where to look....you know, in case they want to prosecute crooked stewards to the fullest extent of the law. I won't hold my breath however.

Gotta believe going to be an inquiry in R1, lets see how they handle it tonight. Runner up looked to drift and impede the 3rd horse via the pan shot.

At least they are consistent, took the 5 down from 2nd to 3rd.

Anyone know why the 4 horse blinked at TuP for 80 minutes in Race 3? I didn't see anything at all that would indicate that the 4 might be at fault for anything. I know there was an objection, but it couldn't have been against the winner,

Right?

I was wondering about that also ,the 3 lodged two claims against the 4, one at the start and one in the stretch.
