Kirby rides incredible 4,207-1 four-timer

ADAM KIRBY landed his first career four-timer at Kempton on Tuesday evening at odds of a massive 4,207-1.

Kirby, who rode Lethal Force to two Group 1 victories this summer, completed the haul aboard 6-4 favourite Jay Bee Blue in the final race of the evening when getting up by two and three-quarter lengths from Emkanaat.

The delighted rider said: "It's been a good night and that's my first-ever four-timer - I've had three before but never four.

"I'm sticking around for most of the winter and hopefully we can keep it going."

Kirby's biggest victory of the night in terms of winning margin and price came aboard the Luca Cumani-trained Kindu, who scored by a comfortable four lengths at odds of 16-1 in the 1m3f maiden.

Not resting on his laurels, Kirby drove home the Dean Ivory-trained Shaunas Spirit to get up by a head from Up Tipp in division one of the mile handicap at 8-1 before winning by the smallest of margins aboard 10-1 chance Apollo D'Negro in the 7f handicap.
