Racing Talk / New whip use rules

You can get started on the tongue tie Napes.....educate away.

I don't know much about it but when I see a horse having it removed after the race, he does look to be mighty pleased it's gone.
It's funny you chose the word "dribbler" because that's what most people feel they are doing when they're in a dentist's chair and they can't use their tongue to swallow :what:
Certainly doesn't look to be that pleasant.....but here's your platform.

I found this.

What about the saddle? Does that hurt the horse? How would you like a strap tightened around your stomach while you are made to run around a circle?

And the bit. A metal rod shoved in your mouth. And don't get me started on the tongue tie.

At least all this mindless focus on a foam tipped fibreglass stick keeps the dribblers happy. They can go home and get stuck into their free range rib fillet and feed their shih tzu ethically treated "beef" mince straight from the knackery.

MUNCE BAN IS AMENDED

BEN DORRIES
CHRIS Munce has had his three-month suspension on a treatment charge quashed on internal review.

Munce was initially banned for three months and fined $5000 by Queensland stewards after a raid at his stables in October last year.

Stewards ordered the scratching of Lady Brahmos after a stable inspection the day before and alleged the mare received an injection in contravention of the rules of racing. Munce pleaded guilty to a breach of treatment rules and misleading stewards. But after an internal review the penalty has been amended and reduced to a $5000 fine (with $2000 suspended for two years).

I stress that the charges did not relate to race-day administration or illegal or prohibited substances, Munce said in a message to owners.

ENDS

This is a reversal of form by the Internal Reviewer the last lot of Internal Reviews published in abbrieviated form  all confirmed the stewards decisions .....this means the $5Kfine is for allegedly misleading stewards which is a breach of AR 232.1 which provides "A  person  must  not give  any  evidence  at  an  interview,  investigation,  inquiry,  hearing  and/or appeal which is false or misleading."

IR decisions are no longer published with reasons for decision from memory I think the former QRIC commissioner stated the decision with reasons would be fully disclosed once the appeal process was finalised......I haven't seen any yet ........QLD is the only jurisdiction with this Internal Review process and an outdated appeal system which  has been under review for almost 2 years with still no end in sight while both NSW and Vic have open and apparently efficient appeal systems.

While $5K is a significant financial penalty it's a lot less than the the 4 months disqualification Rocky stewards gave Jade Rideout for breaching the same rule.

"Our position here is it's a padded whip and the whip in our view is not one that has any welfare implications upon the horse"

You would understand if these are the words of someone in a marketing role for horse racing but these are words of the Chief Steward of Sydney racing......strike me pink!
These are the same words that we hear from P V'Landys and everybody employed by RNSW.
Any jockey charged with a breach of the whip rules could just take that statement off to a civil court and have the charges thrown out.
