Whip Violations: Figueroa Suspended, Prat Fined By Santa Anita Stewards

Under the new whip rules implemented at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., this month, stewards have issued rulings to a pair of jockeys for violations on Oct. 18, reports the Daily Racing Form.

Jockey Heriberto Figueroa has been suspended for three racing days for using his whip more than the allotted six times and not in an underhanded position during that day’s seventh race, which he won aboard Savvy Gal. It was the rider’s third violation in the last 60 days, according to the ruling.

Flavien Prat has been fined $300 for not using the whip in an underhanded position in the G2 Twilight Derby on Oct. 18, in which he finished fifth aboard Farmington Road.
