KAH CLOCKS UP 1000TH WIN AT PAKENHAM

Soon to be Victorian Jockeys Premiership Champion Jamie Kah reached another milestone this week as she clocked up an impressive 1000th career win with a double on the card at Pakenham on Wednesday.

The win etched Kah’s name in history once again with her becoming the third women alongside Linda Meech and Clare Lindop to ride 1000 winners in Australia.

“It’s pretty cool, I think it’s my ninth year of riding to knock that up, it’s unbelievable,” Kah told Racing.com in her mounting yard interview.

Kah was only told about the impending feat on Tuesday by her future mother-in-law.

“I had no idea, I knew it was coming up soon, but no, it’s pretty special,” Kah said.

“You think you’d ride a couple hundred winners in your career, you’d never think 1000.”

Racing Victoria Executive General Manager of Racing Greg Carpenter congratulated the South Australian on her achievement.

“Jamie is the biggest story in racing this year and continues to be an inspiration to young riders, particularly female riders,” Carpenter said.

“To ride 1000 winners is a great achievement and to do so in just Jamie’s ninth season of riding is incredible.

“Fittingly it took all her riding skills to land the favourite in the last at Pakenham.”

During the interview Kah was also quick to reveal she wouldn’t be riding the Mick Price and Michael Kent jr trained Ayrton in the Stradbroke Handicap due to the 49.5kgs allotted to the bottom weight.

“There’s no chance of me doing 49.5kg … 51kg is probably the minimum,” Kah said.

“I’m not going to try 49.5kg.”

Kah’s most recent success at Group 1 level was for Godolphin in the Doncaster Mile aboard Cascadian and will be in the hunt for more when heading to Queensland later this month.
