Kah returns to The Valley

Leading jockey Jamie Kah was back at The Valley on Monday morning as she eagerly awaits the imminent verdict of her appeal to the Supreme Court of Victoria.Kah partnered three horses trained by Clayton Douglas – Epic Centre, Kuna Magic and Runaway Train – in trackwork gallops around The Valley.

Last season’s record-breaking Melbourne champion jockey was suspended for a total of five months at the Victorian Racing Tribunal in mid-September for her part in an illegal Airbnb gathering in Mornington in August.

The hoop was suspended for three months for attending the gathering and a further two months by the VRT for providing false and/or misleading evidence over fellow jockey Mark Zahra’s presence at the gathering.Kah is appealing the two-month ban which threatens to see her sidelined until the end of January, as the VRT ruled the two-month ban is to be cumulatively served with the initial three-month suspension.

Supreme Court judge Justice Richard Niall is expected to deliver his verdict on the extra two-month suspension before the penalty starts on November 25, which could allow Kah to return before the end of the year.

Each of Kah’s mounts on Monday worked with a stable companion ridden by apprentice Campbell Rawiller, while the Tony Noonan-trained Rusheen, ridden by son Jake, accompanied China Affair and the Kah-ridden Kuna Magic, who had a good gawk around The Valley in ‘winning’ her gallop for her new stable.
