Monmouth: Really?

EmailThe fact that Vindicat came all the way over, across several paths in the stretch, and caused Talk to Nick to clearly take up...THAT was determined by the stewards to "not have affected the outcome of the race"? Really? Because Talk to Nick didn't lost 4th by very much at all, and Vindicat was obviously drifting in badly, and most certainly caused him to check. He caught Caldron on the wire but even lightly bumped that rival. Did Vindicat have to knock a couple of horses over to get disqualified?
