Kah’s return to the track has been much anticipated after such a significant campaign last year however a broken nose will now see the rider face another spell away from competitive thoroughbred racing.
The incident occurred while completing track work and Kah was expected to pick up the reins once again in the coming days.
Kah hasn’t been allowed to ride competitively in Victoria since she and a number of jockey’s breached the states Covid-19 restrictions and was handed a three month ban as a result.
The three month ban meant that Kah missed the lucrative Spring Carnival period and was set to miss out on the remainder of the year after a two month extension was added for giving stewards false or misleading evidence during their inquiry.
Her additional two month suspension however was overturned last week by the supreme court freeing her path towards a return to the saddle.
It now looks likely that the injury will keep Kah out of the saddle for a further few weeks with the Pakenham Cup in early December the likely return date.
The news will come as a further disappointment to Kah who rode the winner of the Zipping Classic at Sandown in 2020 when she piloted the Mike Moroney trained Sound to victory.
Her injury now rules out any title defence at the recently relocated Caulfield event.
