The highly anticipated film, Ride Like A Girl, featuring the inspirational story of Michelle Payne and her historic Melbourne Cup win, hit cinemas nationally on Thursday 26 September, and has become the highest grossing Australian film of 2019.

The film depicts the moment when Michelle Payne became the first female jockey to win the ‘race that stops a nation’TM when Prince of Penzance was first to cross the line at odds of 100 to 1.

Filming took place at several racecourses across Victoria including Flemington, The Valley, Caulfield, Werribee, Balnarring and the home of the story, Ballarat.

Racing Victoria (RV) is an official partner of the film, which features world-renowned actress Rachel Griffiths in her directorial debut, as well as acclaimed actress Teresa Palmer in the role of Michelle Payne.

Michelle’s brother Stevie, who strapped Prince of Penzance before the race and led him into the winner’s enclosure afterwards, plays himself in the film.
