Kah releases statement after photo controversy

Champion jockey Jamie Kah has released a statement after pictures circulated online appearing to show her near an unknown white powder. The photos came to light just a day after Kah announced that she had returned to trackwork.
Kah, who is leading the Victorian metropolitan jockeys’ premiership, hasn’t ridden since a fall at Flemington in March left her with a concussion. It is unclear when the photo was taken or what the substance is in the photo. “I am determined to focus on my health and recovery following my race fall in March which left me with a serious brain injury and being in hospital for three weeks,” Kah said in her statement.
“I am working hard to get back to doing what I love, and that is being a passionate and successful jockey. I will continue to focus on my physical and mental health and making a full recovery so I can return to racing and be the best person that I can possibly be. I won’t be making any further comment.” Racing Victoria confirmed stewards would make contact with Kah to “avail themselves of all the facts” before they determine if any rules have been broken.
