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.

Quotes

Young Michelle: How can a horse that was winning come last?
Paddy Payne: Because he went fast at the wrong end of the race. Yep, that's the Melbourne Cup. It's an upside down race. Anyway, if you can go from first to last, no reason you can't go from last to first.

Surprisingly Enjoyable.
24 September 2019 | by oziguySee all my reviews

Surprisingly enjoyable. I went with two female friends who, like me, are not big horse racing fans but we all gave this movie the thumbs up.
