Ride Like a Girl

The inspirational story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup.

Payne rode the 100 to 1 outsider Prince of Penzance to victory in the 2015 Melbourne Cup at Flemington. The movie tells of her struggles on her way to acceptance in the male-dominated world of Australian racing.

"Australian actress Teresa Palmer describes playing the role of Michelle Payne as "one of the greatest honours" of her life.Palmer co-stars alongside legendary Kiwi actor Sam Neill who plays the role of Payne's Kiwi father Paddy." www.stuff.co.nz
