Jockey Goes to Supreme Court to Defend Integrity

Jamie Kah is going to the Supreme Court to fight her two-month ban for providing false or misleading evidence to Racing Victoria stewards.

Just eight hours after the Victorian Racing Tribunal on Friday increased her original thee-month ban for attending the illegal Airbnb gathering last month, Kah sent out a tweet to announce she would appeal “to defend my reputation as to honesty”.

“I have done so (appealed) because I answered every question asked of me by the stewards truthfully and yet I have been found guilty of giving false evidence,” she wrote.

“My reputation, which I have earned by my conduct over my whole life as an honest person is very important to me.

“I am going to court to defend my reputation as to honesty. It is too important to myself as a person not to.

“I will not be making any further public comment on the matter. The courts will decide the issues.”

Kah did not appeal her original three-month ban, which sees her sidelined until late November.
