Jockey Christophe Soumillon was punished for excessive use of the whip during this and earlier races on the card. He said, "It's Arc weekend, and you've got to give everything. I don't think it's right that I should be punished, especially as I don’t think I was excessive. I was striking the whip onto the rail and my whip has even broken."
