Racing NSW chief steward Ray Murrihy has warned punters the change to the whip rules will see correct weight delayed on races.

Murrihy said an operational policy would be implemented for stewards to review jockeys actions during a race in a post race whip use review before declaring correct weight.

“Immediately following a race stewards will need to review the footage to ensure there are no whip offences before declaring correct weight,” Murrihy said.

“What we don’t want is a fishing expedition, if you want to use that phrase, from well-meaning owners, trainers and jockeys who virtually are searching the finish of a race to find a jockey that maybe has offended under the rules.”

The technology used to transfer the race footage to the stewards room is likely to result in significant delays in declaring correct weight at the majority of meetings across NSW.

“Ninety percent of tracks in the state don’t have the fibre optic cables that send the video footage straight to the stewards,” Murrihy said.

“That means it is a manual operation and a time-consuming operation of someone having to bring the video footage to the stewards.

“In the metropolitan area it will probably hold us up giving correct weight for a couple of minutes but in

the country area it may be significant.”
