Keeneland Race 4
An objection was lodged by the rider of fifth place #1 “Hat Tip” (Joseph Rocco, Jr.) alleging interference by the rider of the winner, #2 “Tweety Show” (Julie Burke) near the 1/16 pole. The rider of sixth place #7 “Classical Magic” (Joel Rosario) also lodged an objection, citing interference approaching the 1/16 pole.
In addition, a Stewards Inquiry was posted involving #4 “Mucha Mezquina” (Alex Canchari) near the 1/16 pole.
After reviewing the race replay and interviewing the riders involved, there were two disqualifications. First, for drifting in and impeding #7, #1 was disqualified from fifth and placed sixth, behind #7. Secondly, the objection lodged by the rider of #1 was disallowed, as it was determined that the interference instead came from #4 who was on the inside, drifting out and pushing #2 into #1. For that interference, #4 was disqualified from third and placed sixth, behind #1.
Official order of finish: 2-6-3-7-1

After reviewing the race replay and interviewing the riders, the stewards determined that #9 angled in and caused #8 to clip heels and lose momentum. #9 was disqualified from fourth and placed eighth. No other action was taken, and the race was posted official.
