12/05/02 Harnett Banned after "Improper" Whip Use on Winner

Leading Melbourne jumps jockey Willie Harnett was this afternoon suspended from riding for a month after deliberately striking his mount in today's hurdle in the vicinity of the head on a number of occasions.

Stewards took exception to Harnett's riding tactics over the concluding stages deeming his actions to be "improper."

Harnett's mount Sir Cool, a $15 chance, won the Pooley Bridge Hurdle was a half head.

The suspension will see the talented rider out of the saddle until June 13.
