Kathy O'Hara has become one of Australia's best riders.  Born in Singleton, in the heart of the Hunter Valley where some of the best vineyards in Australia stand and the best Thoroughbreds are foaled, she was born in the right area.
Growing up in Goulburn NSW, Kathy first started riding for a friend in the early hours of the morning, then gradually started strapping at meetings and just slowly worked herself into riding, from there she hasn't looked backed.  She took out the 2004-05 Sydney apprentices’ premiership with 24 winners.
Top trainer Guy Walter is a big fan of Kathy consistently booking her for many of his best fancied gallopers and gave her the ride on Wild Iris in the Gr 1-Caulfield Cup in 2005.
Kathy won her first Group One race when successful on Ofcourseican in the 2012 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill Gardens for trainer Ron Quinton OAM.
