Jamie Kah has been the champion in waiting in the race for the Melbourne Jockeys Premiership this season however she has now passed another incredible benchmark for the year with her 100th Metro race win

Jamie Kay wins her hundredth race of the season

Kah delivered her 100th season win aboard the Tony McEvoy trained Deep Speed at Caulfield on Saturday and surpassed the record of 99.5 set by Brett Prebble in the 1999/2000 season.

After failing to get a single winner in a full book of rides on Wednesday, Kah made no mistake in steering Deep Speed to victory.

“It’s been a very, very long week. I’ve had some really good people around me getting me through it, so it’s a big relief today - to do it for Tony and Calvin, they’ve been such a big supporter of my career.

“We’ve had lots of arguments and disagreements on the way through, but they’ve supported me from day one - to get it on their horse was very special.”

When looking back at missing out at Sandown on Wednesday Kah was pragmatic about failing to take out the title earlier.

“Like I said in my interview on Thursday, I’ve been to the races with a better book of rides and not gotten a winner, but the pressure afterwards was ridiculous in my mind. I couldn’t really believe it.

“The next few days were tough, but I thought I had a good book of rides today - it was going to be a pretty bad day if I didn’t get it today!

“I was hearing the crowd cheer and I actually got goosebumps over the line - it was pretty special. Thank you to everyone for coming.”

With just three weeks left in the season it will be interesting to see what benchmark Kah is able to set and with Spring right around the corner she’ll be looking for more Group 1s like those claimed aboard Vega One and Nature Strip in 2021.
