Watch last nights Lecomte stakes, a grade three race for three yearolds, you will see a jockey repeated strike the winning horse without giving it chance to respond. I am sick of this, will the stewards throw the winner and stand the jockey down for exessive use.I doubt it but it makes me sick seeing them abuse horses. If a horse needs to be flogged to get it to win at this time of the year i would not give it much hope on the first saturday in may.
The same thing at Cheltnum, cannot they just ride the horse out hands and heels foe crying out loud.
I would like to see the end of use of whips in racing, the soon the better.
