Stewards’ inquiry into the backstretch run and jockey’s objection from the # 3 South Africa (Kendrick Carmouche) against the # 6 Steam Engine (Jorge A. Vargas Jr.). In the vicinity of the 5/8ths pole, #6 angles in quickly toward the rail, crossing in front of #3 and causing him to check. Subsequently, approaching the ½ mile pole, #6 comes in on #1 Dark Money (Manuel Franco), who has to take up. After reviewing the video and speaking to the riders involved, the stewards believed the incident did affect the outcome of the race. The #6 was disqualified and placed fourth behind the #1. The race was made official the new order of finish is 3-2-1-6.
