I was very concerned to see this news on Billy Turner.

New whip rule in effect, but think we may see fines and such at first? Although it doesn’t mention punishments per se.

Gabriel Saez suspended for 30 days due to careless riding and causing 3 horses to fall, 2 jocks with broken bones and one horse vanned off. Prayers for the jocks full recovery and the horse as well.

 From what I read about the incident (didn't watch the replay), he caused injuries due to his very careless riding, 30 days IMO is an insignificant amount of time for what he did and caused. suspension for a protracted period of time (say  6 months?) would be more likely to teach someone a lesson.

I agree! I didn’t see the race as I was working, but will make sure not to watch it now!

It was mentioned in the article I posted, he has horses to ride at Churchill and why he’s appealing so he can ride those.....

Not happy about this!!  My mother never forgave him for Eight Belles and is convinced he caused her death.
