BHA ANNOUNCE NEW WHIP & CHIP BUT AMATEURS EXEMPT

16-10-2009

The BHA has announced the introduction of a new whip for jockeys but the good news for amateurs is that they are exempt from this change.

The modified whip, which will include a microchip to allow research into the whip’s cushioning longevity, will be made available to British professional jockeys over the next few months, firstly on the Flat. ¬†Modifications have also been made to the grip. ¬†
