Tony McCoy is among nine jockeys that have been banned for ten days for failing to stop after seeing yellow flags.

Tony McCoy was one of nine jockeys to have been suspended after the Betfair Supports Spinal Research Handicap Hurdle at Wetherby was declared a void race earlier today.

A yellow flag, which calls for a race to be halted immediatley, was waved by a course official after Ashburton Lad was pulled up on the flat along the first circuit, having broken a leg.

However, most of the jockeys continued to race, with Brian Hughes claiming the victory aboard Cunning Clarets.

The offending nine riders - McCoy, Hughes, Graham Lee, Danny Cook, Denis O'Regan, Alex Voy, Jonathon Bewley, Paddy Brennan and Brian Toomey - were handed ten-day bans for failing to stop after seeing a yellow flag.

The majority of bookmakers are still paying out on the result.
