Jamie Kah is reportedly said to be in a relationship with her new boyfriend, Ben Melham, a Victorian jockey who is regarded as one of the few outstanding jockeys to have ridden the champion sprinter Black Caviar. According to sources, the 27-year-old jockey split up with her ex-fiance Clayton Douglas after going through relationship difficulties. However, all of the given information has yet to be verified.
Jamie Lee Kah (born December 7, 1995) is an Australian jockey. Since October 2020, she has been the world's top female jockey. In 2020/21, she became the first jockey to ride 100 winners in a Melbourne Metropolitan racing season. Meanwhile, in her first full season, Kah won the Adelaide Jockeys' Premiership in 2012-2013. She won the Premiership for the third time in 2017-18 after moving to Melbourne in January 2019 and winning her first Group One race on Harlem in the Australian Cup at Flemington in March.
Jamie Kah grew up in the Adelaide Hills town of Mount Pleasant, South Australia, and began working at a friend's stables when she was 13 years old. She began her riding apprenticeship in 2011, competed in her first race at Streaky Bay in March 2012, and won her first race 14 days later at Clare's Easter Saturday meeting. In addition, the Victorian Racing Tribunal suspended her for five months in September 2021 for violating COVID-19 regulations and providing false or misleading evidence to the breach investigation.
At that time, the personal relationship of arguably Australia's best jockey was on the rocks prior to a mind-boggling Covid-19 rule violation at a luxury Airbnb. Jamie Kah was charged with violating Victoria curfew rules and fined $5,452 alongside his rumored boyfriend and 3 others. So if you want to learn more about how her relationship with her boyfriend is going on, here is everything you need to know!
Jamie Kah’s Boyfriend: The 27-Year-Old Australian Jockey Is Said to Be Dating Ben Melham After Splitting up With Her Ex-fiancé, Clayton Douglas!
Jamie Kah (@jamieleekah07) is said to be dating her long-term jockey partner Ben Melham (@BMelham). When Ben and Kah debuted their new romance, it confirmed what his 15-year partner had long suspected. While Kah's camp has previously denied that she is dating Melham, racing sources believe they have been dating for some time. In any case, Kah hinted to Stellar that Melham is her new boyfriend. She said,
We've tried to protect a lot of people – there were lots of things sorting themselves out. But yes, I'm very happy now.
Ben Melham is a well-known Victorian jockey who is regarded as one of the few outstanding jockeys to have ridden the champion sprinter Black Caviar. His statistics are impressive. The passionate jockey has a total of 910 victories, the most notable of which was at Baughurst in 2009. Likely, Ben has always been fortunate in terms of his trainers. In addition, Ben Melham has received training from Hall of Fame trainer Lee Freedman and Victorian Champion Darren Weir.
However, the rumor between the two couples is yet to make public. Jamie Kah has previously been engaged to her long-term boyfriend Clayton Douglas who is keeping quiet following the end of his ex-girlfriend's romance with Ben Melham. Meanwhile, the couple has reportedly been living apart as they work through relationship difficulties. In addition, it's been reported that superstar Jamie Kah, one of the riders at the center of the storm, had been living on and off at the property because of relationship difficulties with her fiance.
At the time of their split up, Racing officials banned and fined Kah for violating strict lockdown rules. She, along with fellow riders Ben Melham, Ethan Brown, and Celine Gaudray, paid Kah up to £160,000. They all partied at the £650,000 villa, which can be rented for £266 per night and is located just south of Melbourne, Australia. The mind-boggling Covid violation - a violation of Victoria's'stay at home' message - has rocked Australian racing and superstar Kah's image.
However, according to a new report, she was renting out the villa due to her 'on the rocks' relationship. Likely, according to the Australian newspaper The Herald Sun, Kah had been living at the property part-time due to relationship difficulties with Douglas.
While Jamie Kah has a balanced professional life and a good childhood, her luck in her relationship and dating life has not been kind to her. Her relationship with her ex-fiance is far from stable. Initially, she may have dated someone before him, but for the time being, her relationship history begins with her relationship with her new boyfriend.
