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.

A strong story for women, young and old.
27 September 2019 | by bamco-50158See all my reviews

Despite being from Melbourne and feeling I knew all about the Michelle Payne story, I was presented with a much deeper exploration of this amazing, young woman's life. The story ensures laughter, tears, joy and bewilderment. Great casting in Sam Neill as Michelle's father, Paddy Payne. Teresa Palmer as Michelle Payne, does not disappoint and Stevie Payne is perfectly cast as his infectious self. Many well known Australian faces in the supporting cast, which adds to the strength of this brilliant story. Beautiful cinematography and a musical score which takes you on an epic rollercoaster ride. I needed tissues even though I knew the outcome. This Australian gem shouldn't be missed. See it on the big screen if you can.
