Jamie Kah thinks the British racing industry is backwards

Group One winning Australian jockey Jamie Kah has hit out at the British racing industry calling it ‘backwards’ in regards to the opportunities for female jockeys.

Kah is in England to ride in the Shergar Cup in Hayley Turner’s Girls team but when she spoke to the British media she did not hold back in regards to the opportunities female jockeys get in Britain.

‘’I’ve come from Australia, where the trainers have come around to females many years ago, so we’ve all been given a really fair shout,’’ Kah said.

“It’s as fair as it’s ever been.

“If you’re good, if you put in the time and work, you’ll get rides.

“Here, it’s very different. They’re very backward, I reckon, with the times.

“They’re not as accepting of female riders and there are some brilliant riders here.

“I’ve watched Hayley [Turner] and I think she rides as good as any of the boys here.

“I can’t get over how backwards it is. If you ask females back home, they’ll all blow up about the idea of getting a three-kilo allowance.

“But maybe something does need to happen here. Watching these riders, there’s nothing separating them in my opinion, besides opportunities.”
