An inquiry into leading jockey Shane Scriven’s use of another rider’s whip in a provincial Queensland race will resume on Thursday.

Racing Queensland stewards launched an investigation into Scriven snatching apprentice Ben Looker’s whip in a bizarre finish to a race at Ipswich on Friday.

Scriven, whose mount Requested was being hailed the winner, lost his whip in the straight when it was accidentally knocked from his hand.

The Group One-winning jockey then grabbed the whip used by Looker as the apprentice was trying to urge Toronto Dancer, racing to the inside of Requested, to stay in contention.

Requested, who eased from $3.20 to $4.40 in on-course betting, was beaten a nose by Seeyou.

Looker’s mount Toronto Dancer was only a half-head away in third place.

The incident took a further twist past the winning post when Scriven handed the whip back to Looker as their mounts were being eased down.

Scriven is scheduled to be reunited with star West Australian galloper Scenic Shot when he runs at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Scenic Shot is being aimed at the Group One Doomben Cup which he won two years ago.
