Jockey Richard Hughes Temporarily Relinquishes His Licence

Top jockey Richard Hughes has this evening received his 2nd five-day ban in a week for excessive use of the whip. For a jockey who has always had the reputation of  nursing  horses along as opposed to riding them hard, it is almost unbelievable that he has been banned and fined again - especially as he has only received 1 previous ban in the last 3 years.

He is so angry about the bans, he has relinquished his licence until such a time that the new rules, introduced just this week, are reviewed.
