21 year old Jonjo O'Neill jnr has been banned for 19 race-days after misuse of the whip on a few occasions that has seen his amount of days increase under the totting up procedure.

He has said that he will take his time on the sidelines to reflect and make sure that he does not get banned for the same rule in the future.

The son of Grand National winning trainer Jonjo O'Neill really came to life as a rider last season landing 30 winners including his first victory at the Cheltenham festival on board the Joseph O'Brien trained Early Doors in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle.

He has since then added more great success to his young career with a Punchestown festival win on the Phillip Hobbs trained Musical slave. Both these big festival wins have come in the colours of leading horse racing owner J P McManus.

One of jnr's greatest achievements to date and certainly one of his biggest wins away from a big festival came at Kempton early on in the season when he landed the Lanzarote Handicap Hurdle for trainer Jennie Candlish with Big Time Dancer.

O'Neill certainly is a claiming jockey that is going places with more big time trainers giving him good opportunities in some big races.

He is still riding in the national hunt off season and landed the second treble of his career when being in inspired form at Stratford on Sunday going on to take the last three races on the card.

However, he has been handed a 28 day ban with nine of those being deferred until mid September. This 19 day ban will see the youngster off the track for just under three weeks and could halt is progress.

(Credit Racing Post) The jockey said: "The ban starts on Friday and lasts until June 19, which is a long time

"I'll learn from it – if you don't learn from that you won't learn from anything and hopefully it won't happen again."

O'Neill jnr was seen to overuse the whip on board Project Bluebook in the Swinton Hurdle at Haydock on May 11th and because this was his fifth offence of a similar nature within six months, the case was referred to the BHA who took the action to ban the 21 year old.

His father Jonjo O'Neill snr believes his son will learn from his mistakes but is sympathetic towards him having been a quality jockey before turning to training.

He said: "It's been going really well for him and the ban is a bit of a nuisance – as much for me as anyone

"It's like anything, you've got to learn the rules and understand it.

"It's a bit awkward when horses are running for you and you're encouraging them and they're going forward, it's hard not to do it [use the whip] in any race because you're trying to win but the rules are there and you have to learn from it."
