VIC – Pending RAD Board Hearing – Gary Leech

02 July 2019

Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) Stewards have issued a charge against licensed trainer-driver Gary Leech under Australian Harness Racing Rule (AHRR) 190(1) which states:

A horse shall be presented for a race free of prohibited substances.

It is alleged that Mr Leech presented the horse ‘Bonza Guy’ to race at Geelong on 19 December 2018 when not free of cobalt, a prohibited substance when evidenced at a concentration above the allowable threshold.

Mr Leech has been issued with a further charge for failing to keep and maintain a log book in accordance with the AHRR.

The charges will be heard by the HRV Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board on a date to be fixed.
