What a great rider she's turning out to be. She can position from the barrier and also gives no quarter during a race.My favorite rider. my bank balance also says that. 8-)

I'm so please to see Kathy ride a group one winner - hopefully now trainers and owners will give her the respect she deserves as she has proven she can hold her own against the boys  :thumbsup:

Good to see. Michelle Payne was originally invited to that meeting but Kathy took over
when Michelle was injured.

Kathy pulled the wrong rein yesty.....getting off her last start winner Circle Of Power for Fireball...the " coat tuggers" might have whispered in her ear as Fireball was a big shortener while Circle Of Power had few admirers but still delivered in fine style.

Post by: Gintara on 2013-Jan-06, 02:40 PM
Circle of Power ran 2nd last (6th of 7) at it's last start on 29th Dec beaten 3

Gee she seems out of favour    :what:

On a day when most are interstate she has only one ride  :chin: Her stats on Racing & Sports seems similar to previous years at 10% win & 22% place

I've never had a problem backing her especially on leaders.

Guy walter put her on most of the time, she also does the show jumping a bit more than she used to. Also you have jockeys like sammy clenton and winona who get weight off and are better jocks.

Post by: Gintara on 2015-Oct-24, 02:48 PM
Doubt I've ever seen her post about show jumping on race days so I doubt that has anything to do with  :what:

She hasn't been an apprentice for a long time so I don't get that comparison either  :shrug:
Title: Kathy O'Hara
Post by: whispering on 2015-Oct-24, 03:05 PM
She rides less work therefore less rides

And you have the appretices who ride better and with weight allowance so more likely to put them on esp. As they ride more of the horses in work.

There will be a Michelle effect:


.............the ladies will be more confident and more aspiring -- and more winning.

It is entirely probable that an O'Hara will win a big race.

According to Sky Thoroughbred Central has fractured ribs and a fractured collarbone (clavicle), and is suffering some concussion.

We wish her all the best for a speedy recovery.

Was a very nasty fall and those injuries are not trivial.

Horse looked like it may have rolled over her too, certainly looked bad.

Seemed to be traveling well too.

From Racenet

O'Hara to remain in hospital after fall

Jockey Kathy O'Hara will remain in hospital for the next few days while blood and air is drained from her punctured lung.

O'Hara expects to be riding within weeks despite being injured after falling from Single Gaze on the home turn in Saturday's Australian Oaks.

"Just wanted to let people know I will most likely be in hospital for a few days. Got a bit of blood and air on my lungs with a drain in," O'Hara tweeted on Monday.

"Thank you for the well wishes."

O'Hara has been cleared of serious breaks and has a small fracture of the collarbone which is unlikely to require surgery.

She said she would follow up with Racing NSW doctor David Duckworth about her injured right shoulder after she leaves hospital.

Single Gaze, the Vinery Stud Stakes winner, escaped with minor lacerations.

An inquiry into the incident has been delayed until O'Hara is able to attend.

Kathy O'Hara out for up to three months

AAP - 15 Apr 2016

Jockey Kathy O'Hara will be sidelined for up to three months as she recovers from an injury suffered in a fall at Randwick.


O'Hara underwent surgery on Thursday night on her sternoclavicular joint after originally hoping to leave hospital earlier in the week.

Racing NSW doctor David Duckworth, who performed the operation, said he had to reduce and reconstruct the joint dislocation.

He said O'Hara would be in a sling for four weeks and out of racing for between eight to 12 weeks.

O'Hara came off Single Gaze at the home turn in last Saturday's Australian Oaks.

The filly fell on top of the rider with stewards saying O'Hara's safety vest could well have saved her life.

Stewards have adjourned an inquiry into the fall.

Extracts from Racenet  Richie Callander reports that Kathy is a bride in waiting, having had to reschedule her June wedding to Chris Waller’s right-hand man Charlie Duckworth because of the Covid outbreak.

I complimented Duckworth on TV recently for some new gear and a flashier appearance. Perhaps that is the O’Hara influence.
O’Hara is having a top season with 68 wins, 21 of them on city tracks


Good Luck to Kathy &Charlie hope they have a long and happy life together.
