Champion jockey Jamie Kah showed she could win anywhere, anytime with a stunning return to SA racing, grabbing three winners at Morphettville on Adelaide Cup Day.
Kah dominated the early support card, kickstarting with an opening-race victory on Seradess which charged home to win the $102,250 Listed Cinderella Stakes for two-year-old fillies.
Echoes in Eternity gave Kah an early double in the third race winning the three-year-old Furphy Stakes for trainer Michael Hickmott, while Night Raid ($3.50) followed winning the fourth event, the 1200m Matrice Stakes.

Kah said she was thrilled to be back in her home town for Cup Day.
“This is my first time back in SA for about a year and to have my mum and dad and (partner) Clayton (Douglas) here to share was great,’’ Kah said. “It has been a fantastic day.’’
A slight drifter in the market ($4.40) the Mark Kavanagh trained Seradess, a Magic Millions Adelaide $50,000 purchase, was wide and rearward early before making its run to gather in the leaders to win in top fashion.
Seradess dead-heated for first on debut at Bendigo at $51, but was never in doubt yesterday from halfway down the straight.
Kah, leading the Victorian jockeys’ premiership by a staggering 30 wins, also was announced by the Victorian Wakeful Club as its 2020/21 Lady of Racing to mark International Woman’s Day.
Promising Ironclad ($4.60) made it three wins on end with a barnstorming run to win the Listed C.S. Hayes Memorial Cup. Trained by Will Clarken and ridden by ex-pat SA and three-times Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy, Ironclad’s win was its fifth win from 11 starts.
Struck By edged out Milton Park in a slogging finish to take out the Morphettville Guineas, while Will Price rode a double on Legend of Zorro and Viduka.
Stacey Metcalfe enjoyed a slice of Cup-day success when she piloted consistent Little Rich Boy ($16) home in a Benchmark 78, defying Mileva and Calypso Reign in a trifecta for women jockeys.
