The Stewards interviewed B.T. O'Connell, rider of Company Coming, concerning his use of the whip in this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that the rider was in breach of Regulation 10.3(g), in that he used the whip with the arm above shoulder height and having considered his record, suspended him for three race day's and referred him to RACE for one day's tuition on the use of the whip.
