"There is, arguably, now no name in racing bigger than the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup”
(The Age, 1 September 2017)
We are excited to announce that Michelle Payne will be our special guest for this year's Racing Lunch.
Michelle Payne, the youngest daughter of a legendary racing family, took 100-1 shot Prince of Penzance to victory on November 2015. Six months latershe suffered life-threatening injuries in a terrible race fall before demonstrating remarkable courage and resolve to resume riding late last year.
Now Michelle is embarking on a training career, an ambassadorial role for the Spring Racing Carnival and joining Seven’s racing team as an expert commentator. It’s no wonder a feature film about her career is currently in production!
