Whip use in horse racing: BHA asks for public opinion as 10-week consultation period begins to discuss potential rule changes

 

BHA's chief regulatory officer Brant Dunshea said: "No decisions have been made and no scenario is more likely than the other. We want everybody that has an opinion on this to contribute."

 

 

A public consultation into the use of the whip in British racing will "consider all possibilities" and is open for all to contribute.

 

 

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has launched a 10-week consultation period, aimed at gathering and assessing the viewpoints of industry participants, non-industry stakeholders and wider public audiences, regarding rules, usage and penalties related to the whip.

 

In British racing, the whip used is foam-padded and was designed with input from the RSPCA, and its use in races is subject to strict controls, but has been the subject of much debate.

 

At Royal Ascot this year, jockey William Buick was given an 11-day suspension and a fine of £1,150 for his use of the whip during a winning ride on Reshoun in the Ascot Stakes.

 

Views and suggestions from the consultation will be considered by the newly-formed Whip Consultation Steering Group, which includes leading trainer John Gosden plus jockeys Tom Scudamore and PJ McDonald.

 

the BHA's chief regulatory officer Brant Dunshea said: "I want to be crystal clear that the Steering Group will consider all possibilities based on the consultation, the feedback received and their own personal insights.
