Trainer Matthew Leek fined over conduct

Matthew Leek has been fined $5000 for unseemly conduct after a fight with a fellow trainer.

The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board issued the fine on Wednesday after Leek pleaded guilty to a conduct charge issued by stewards.

A charge was laid following an exchange between Leek and John Gunning at Pakenham on June 27.

Leek has been given three months to pay the fine.
