WHY WE CHOOSE JAMIE KAH?
Punters Wardrobe love a good young success story and there is none better in the racing world than female Jockey, Jamie Kah.
Born and bred in South Australia, Kah picked up the racing game quickly and rode her 1st official winner at the tender age of 16!
The South Australian racing world wasn't ready for this teenage sensation as she claimed the "Adelaide Jockey's Premiership" in her first full season of riding (2012/13).
She won the premiership for the third time in the 2017/18 season making it 3 wins from 5 seasons against tough, experienced competition! She was clearly the best jockey in South Australia at the time and made the move to Victoria.
Success seemed to follow her everywhere she went and in early 2019 she rode Harlem to claim her 1st Group 1 Victory in the Australian Cup.
In October 2020, Kah was ranked as the top female jockey by the Thoroughbred Racing Commentary's global ranking. Just another outstanding feat.
Not only are her efforts on the track outstanding but her efforts off the track are equally as commendable. Kah and partner, Clayton Douglas who is also a rider/trainer re-home, look after and retrain racehorses. Another fantastic contribution to the Racing Community!
As of January 2021 she is currently leading the 2020/21 Victorian Jockey Premiership!
