Jockeys suspended for riding like NASCAR drivers?

This is a crazy story! All you need to do is change a few names and it sounds like every weekends NASCAR report.
Fortunately, no human or horse was hurt. 100 lb men riding 1200 lb. animals doing the dance down the homestretch.
This reminded me of the scene from the beginning of Seabiscuit when the amateur riders were whipping each other.
I think 30 days suspending is a fair punishment. The two riders were aggressively pursuing on another, and someone could have gotten really hurt.

Speaking about suspensions.........I did not even check the card at Larel yesterday. It is my own little boycott! Free Rosie!!!
