A protest with potentially monumental implications in the racing industry within Australia has been upheld at Sunshine Coast racecourse with a dead heat protest being upheld due to over use of the whip.
Will this upheld protest make way for more protests in the future for over use of the whip?
Looks like the dead heat protest for a whip breach at the Sunshine Coast was upheld. Important precedent.
