An apprentice jockey has revived a two week suspension for punching his hose behind the barriers before a recent race at Port Lincoln in Australia, the Australian Broadcast Corporation reports.
This comes after Irish jockey Davy Russell received a four-day ban from the Turf Club for punching a horse in the back of the head during a similar incident at Tramore.
Rather than attempt to calm his horse down, just before the race, he proceeded to throw a haymaker into She's Reneldasgirl's ribs, clearly inflicting pain.
Thoroughbred Racing South Australia moved quickly to hand down the suspension on Wednesday afternoon.
Australian animal protection group, the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses, also denounced Caboche's actions and called for him to expelled from the horse racing industry for life. "You don't get to punch a horse and get away with it", Young said.
"If jockeys can't control their tempers, they don't deserve to be on the racetrack".
But expressing your frustrations with force on an animal can't be justified, and we've seen the second example of that sort of behaviour by a jockey in recent times.
He escaped a ban but was fined $500 [£292].
Stockdale said he was frustrated after wasting to make a ride later in the programme and vowed that it wouldn't happen again.
