Might be voluntary. I've seen it before on thoroughbreds. In the unusual instance where the horse reacts so adversely to the use of a whip it's agreed not to be carried to  not spook the horse and cause a chain reaction. Natural inclination of the jock/ driver is to use whip in real tight race and trainer doesn't want the driver to get caught up in the moment, forget and whip. I don't know though; just one possibility

Why am I respondin.
In FLATS: A new apprentice in his or her first 5 mounts is not allowed to carry a whip.
Yes they have worked out plenty a horse,prior to actually bein in a race. But in workouts:NO ONE allowed a whip.
So for safety of others in race,they not allowed to carry whip. They got enough problems actually runnin against competition let alone carry a whip in one hand.
Even though they normally get a 10lb advantage,never bet them. If you do,they better be on the by far fastest horse in race,so's they can get lead. And 99% of that don't work. They end up breakin last.
This INFORMATION brought to you by JOHN FRANK ARMY. They say he the BEST HANDICAPPER that ever WAS.

JF I always liked to watch the bug boys when they first start riding, forget the race just have eyes on them and see how the horse responds to them. And then watch them when they first are allowed to carry a stick. If the horse went well without a whip and when the bug was allowed to carry and horses improved then many times I caught some nice prices while on horses carrying less weight with bug boys that have showed some ability.
