New Whip Rules 4: Jockeys Spring Carnival Threat
Meanwhile Australian Jockeys' Association chief executive Paul Innes announced the Australian Racing Board decision not to change the whip rule "has put a cloud over the upcoming Spring Racing Carnival". Innes declared: "Unfortunately the ARB has let jockeys & everyone else involved in the industry down today. All we were after was a common sense approach to the whip issue. Jockeys are very happy with the introduction of the padded whips, we're happy to limit the use of the whip prior to the last 100m, but the rules governing the whips use in the last 100m have to change." Innes added: "We can't rule anything out at this stage. We can't have jockeys worrying about counting the number of times they've moved their whips, when they should be concentrating on getting to the line safely. It's just ridiculous. Racing is a dangerous sport as is: jockeys put their lives on the line every time they jump in the saddle. And now by leaving these rules in place, the ARB is making it even more dangerous for our riders. The ARB has completely ignored the unanimous call of all participant stake-holders to make a minor variation to the rules."
