McGarvey, rider of Orpheus Valley, concerning his use of the whip in this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that the rider was in breach of Regulation 10.3(f) having used the whip with excessive frequency and having considered his record, suspended him for three race days.
