So-called bridge-jumper bettors appeared home free when 2-5 favorite Paige's Prize rolled to a 12 1/2-length victory Feb. 25 in the first race on the card at Beulah Park, but moments later their anticipated small profits would vanish.
In the hours that followed, the stewards' decision to disqualify Paige's Prize was nearly universally panned by handicappers on social media sites—even players who said they benefited from the call. Some of those players suggested racing association stewards faced a conflict of interest because of a potential negative show pool if Paige's Prize had won.

Wow, that was rediculous. That steward should face criminal charges.
Wow, that is incredible. I watched the head on a few times, I could not tell who, If anyone? was to blame for that. If I were the stewards I would check my mailbox and underneath my car for any suspicious devices. That was brutal for the plungers.
Good reporting Southie. Thanks.
I dont know where you bet in Vegas,but I was there Jan 2-9th,and everywhere i played the horses they were commingled with track pools.They shouldnt have had any exposure.
Our rule says you can't impede or intimidate another horse," DeLuca said. "(Paige's Prize) came down so abruptly, in such a small amount of time, that it gave us no alternative but to look at the outside horse. He caused the whole problem."
In California that horse wouldn't come down because the stews predicted the 20-1 horse on the rail had no shot at hitting the board.

Southieboy hit it right on the loveing head: HORSEMEN'S RACE
Do they employ 3 stewards at Beulah?
Big question to all
Let say a six horse field, a horse is going off at 1/5 and you know it will not pull up or cheat,
Should the track call off show betting.
