There are three Stewards in the stand during the running of the races. Two of the Stewards actually watch the race live from the viewing stand
high above the grandstand with binoculars. The third Steward views the running of the race via video feed from the track’s film/video patrol service. Following the race, the Stewards may review the films of the race from several different angles so that they can see infractions that may occur. In cases where a foul is detected, they may change the order of finish accordingly. The Commission also employs a Safety Steward who monitors horse health and safety issues pertaining to racing participants.
All Stewards daily reports can be accessed on line: https://agriculture.delaware.gov/thoroughbred-racing-commission/stewards-reports/
