SATURDAY JULY 18 Channel 039

Based on the true story of Michelle Payne – the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup. As a little girl, Michelle dreamt of the impossible - winning the Melbourne Cup, horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. The youngest of 10 children, Michelle was raised by single father Paddy. At 15, she left school to become a jockey and after early failures, eventually found her feet.  A near fatal horse fall all but ended the dream. With the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, she didn’t give up, ignoring medical advice. Then she met the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcame impossible odds of 100 to 1, to ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup. The rest is history! A truly inspirational, moving story of courage and determination against all odds. Starring Teresa Palmer, Sam Neill, Sullivan Stapleton. Directed by Rachel Griffiths.
