Glyn Schofield was fined for over used the whip on Beautiful Romance in the Zipping Classic

The whip rule has again been brought to the fore at Sandown on Saturday with the winning jockey of the Zipping Classic ‘Glyn Schofield’ receiving a $1,000 fine for overuse of the whip.

Schofield rode Beautiful Romance to a narrow victory over Almoonqith in the feature at Sandown with a nose the winning margin, post race stewards fined Glyn Schofield for over use of the whip posing the question if it was the difference between winning and losing the race.

Schofield received a $1,000 fine for using the whip four times over the current limit before the 100m mark.

Controversy has surrounded the current whip rules with no clear cut repercussions outside of fines for jockeys who decide to do so.

Out of the same race Damian Lane also received a $1,000 fine for overuse of the whip aboard Big Orange.

Have Your Say: Should overuse of the whip result in suspensions for jockeys or a stewards protest? – Leave a comment below

Earlier in the year a protest was upheld for over use of the whip in a race at the Sunshine Coast which was a dead head before it went to the stewards room.
