Jamie Kah became Australia’s most successful female jockey in Group One races when her brilliant ride of Vega One resulted in them combining to win the TAB Kingsford-Smith Cup at Eagle Farm and head a Tony Gollan-trained quinella.
Already the world’s premier female jockey, according to the Thoroughbred Racing Commentary Global Rankings, Kah will move into the overall top 30 when the next list comes out after booting home her sixth Group One winner, four of which have occurred this season. Kah’s six Group One victories – the 2019 Australian Cup, 2019 Makybe Diva Stakes, 2020 Toorak Handicap, 2021 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes, 2021 Doncaster Mile and 2021 Kingsford-Smith Cup – is one more than the tally of Michelle Payne, who has won five Group One contests, the last of which was the 2015 Melbourne Cup.
Kah’s 600 Australian starts this term have resulted in 127 victories, including one dead heat, and more than $14.6 million in prize money. Only James McDonald and Tommy Berry have banked more cash in Australia since August than Kah.
