Racing: Fines for jockeys in track row
Saturday 26 February 2005
The unseemly weighing-room spat between the jockeys Neil Callan and Shane Kelly at Lingfield last month came to a swift and dignified end in London yesterday when both were fined £250 by the Jockey Club's disciplinary panel.
The bust-up, which occurred next to the weighing-room scales, was witnessed by the stewards' secretary Paul Barton and security officer Graham Prentice, as well as being captured on closed-circuit TV.
It followed an incident during a race in which Callan's mount, Rock Music, who went on to win, came off the rail and bumped Kelly's filly, Elopement, who was unplaced, with Callan being given a six-day ban for causing interference.
