Trivia

The popular male jockey "Olly" in the movie is a portrait of Damien Oliver, who was charged with sports misconduct for placing a $10,000 bet on a rival horse in a 2010 race which he also rode in. The rival horse Oliver placed bet on ended up beating the horse that he was riding, and Oliver made a $11,000 profit from his bet. He was served with an eight-month suspension upon conviction and was allowed to ride in races again on 13th September 2013, the same year where he immediately won the Melbourne Cup upon his return.

Great Australian film full of heart and aussie spirit
1 October 2019 | by coasterdude44See all my reviews

Another great Australian film, Sam Neil was great in it as always, him along with Teresa Parker and Henry Nixon. They all did great in this incredibly uplifting and well acted out and directed movie based on a true story of the first female champion of the Melbourne Cup. Best aussie film of the year, go see it
