Kah reveals a lack of flights means she will have to pull out of riding at New Zealand’s prestigious Karaka Million meeting
Superstar jockey Jamie Kah has revealed a lack of flights means she will have to pull out of riding at New Zealand’s prestigious Karaka Million meeting.
Kah had been booked to ride Tony Pike-trained Poetic Champion in the Karaka Million 2YO on January 27, before she jetting to Hong Kong to ride Packing Treadmill in the Group 1 Centenary Sprint Cup at Sha Tin on January 28.
After riding Another Wil to victory at Sandown on Wednesday, Kah said the New Zealand trip was now off the agenda.
“I get tired thinking about the weeks ahead of me. A few big nights sleeps will help,” Kah said.
“Frequent flyer points are very high. Looking forward to getting back to Hong Kong though. I haven’t been there for quite a while now. I’m looking forward to it.
“I don’t think I can go to New Zealand now. There’s no flights that night to Hong Kong. I have ridden once before in NZ. It’s quite disappointing I can’t go to both.”
