Was thinking today how fortunate we are to be in an era where some of the best female jockeys in the world are all racing here in Australia currently.

Jamie Kah. Jessica Eaton. Rachel King. Georgina Cartwright. All right up there in the top echelon currently and able to ride faves or long shots.

One interesting thing about all of the above bar King - all have risen to another level after time in South Australia. Even today females filled 1/3 of the placings at Mórphettville with a fair few less ratio of rides. Clare Lindop blazed the trail there with Raquel Clark also dominant until her injury. Interested to see why S.A seems to have such a strong strike rate.

Of course there are plenty of other very capable others around the country. Kayla Nisbet. Kathy O'Hara and many others. Who are your fave females to put the faith in?

Doubt many jockeys have a positive career ROI. Once Kah left Adelaide she was just destroying them as per the past 12 months on that graphic. The ROI was even higher if you didn't back the Leon Macdonald ones as those horses were always unders. The fall was such a shame :(

Brilliant at her best. Unfortunately I have heard on the grapevine she may never ride again due to her injury :weary:
