Hughes in a Huff

From Racingpost.com:  RICHARD HUGHES who handed in his riding licence with immediate effect midway through the card at Kempton's evening meeting on Thursday stuck by his decision on Friday morning.   www.racingpost.com

I don't get it.  The new rule states they can whip the horse at most 2 times before the furlong pole and 5 times after.  Hughes has jacked his careeer in because he wants to whip his horses 6 times in the final furlong.  Come off it Hughes, 1 extra time in the final furlong doesn't make you the Messi of horse racing.
