STAR jockey Jamie Kah is on the verge of her 500th
career victory.

Kah, who only started race riding in 2013, needs just three
wins to reach the milestone after four winners last weekend.

The gifted jockey has already established a new Australian
record for the most winners in one season by a female rider
with 126 wins in 2016-17 and she finds herself sixth on the
Australian jockeys’ premiership.

Kah is eight wins ahead of Clare Lindop in the race for her
second Adelaide jockeys’ premiership this year after winning
the 2012-13 title as a 17-year-old apprentice.

And she heads to Gawler on Wednesday with four rides all with
winning chances.

She has two rides for Gawler local Gary Searle — Miss Cuoco
($2.10) and Siliconni ($2.80) who was heavily backed to win
last start. Searle said Siliconni hadn’t taken a backwards step
since his last-start victory with Kah in the saddle and would
take beating.

“He’s trained on really well,’’ Searle said. “I worked out last
prep he’s a fresh horse, it’s been three weeks between run and
he worked really well on Saturday morning.’’

Stablemate Miss Cuoco has been placed at four of five starts
and Searle said the horse deserved to break through.

“I’ve had a couple of little problems with her,’’ Searle said.
“She’s done a good job to run four placings from her five
starts, I’ve had no dramas with her since last run, she worked
well on Saturday morning and she’s going really well. It’s nice
to be back racing here, I have a lot of owners from Gawler, so
it’s nice to win a race on your home track.’’

Kah also partners Sweet Schilly for the Ryan Balfour stable and
Mrs Harvey Brown on debut in the opening race for Julia
Macgillivray.

“My first starter in the first race is a very nice little horse
,’’ Kah said on RSN radio.

Meanwhile, in-form Adelaide-based former Tasmanian apprentice
Raquel Clark will have two rides at Wednesday’s Sandown meeting
in Melbourne for top trainer Patrick Payne.

Clark has had just two rides in Adelaide for Payne winning
aboard Hussy’s Glow at Morphettville last month.
