Walsh guided Benie Des Dieux home to win the Mares’ Hurdle today.
But the BHA has now suspended the rider for overuse of the whip during the run.
“Ruby Walsh suspended for two days for using his whip above the permitted level on the winner, BENIE DES DIEUX (FR),” the BHA tweeted.
He is not the only jockey in hot water for whip use.
P W Mullins, who rose Rathvinden to victory in the Novices Chase, has been suspended for six days.
Walsh fell on the final race of the day.
