Queensland became the first state in Australia to uphold a protest due to excessive whip use when Rosella, who initially deadheated with Stonecast, was demoted to second in Race 4 at the Sunshine Coast earlier this month.

It came after Rosellaís jockey Taylor Williams used the whip eight times, three more than allowed, prior to the 100m mark.

Tommy Berry has just returned from suspension. Outed for breaking the new whip rule on April 2nd. Found guilty of striking Tavago 6 times before the 100m in the ATC Australian Derby, also fined $2000.
The rule allows jockeys to hit a horse only 5 times until that point.

Same day, also fined for excessive whip use were Sam Clipperton ($800) for being 1 strike over on Alegria in the Chairmanís Handicap; Hugh Bowman ($2000) on Pera Pera in the Country Championships Final; Luke Currie ($400) on Super Cash in the PJ Bell Stakes and Zac Purton ($2000) on Yankee Rose in the Siresí Produce Stakes.

"The Racing Australia Board will deliver a report on the new whip rules to each Principal Racing Authority for discussion.

A Sub-Committee will seek written submissions from stakeholder groups and participants and, if appropriate, meet with them before reporting to the Racing Australia Board at its September 14 meeting."

Has anyone noticed the number of times the jockeys get their reins tangled and struggle to get the whip out? I always thought they were taught to cross their reins coming into the home straight to prevent this.
I watch all the replays, and I've seen the whip rule broken so many times, I think they are going to have to revise it sooner than later.
