Racing Victoria (RV) is pleased to be an official partner of the highly anticipated film, Ride Like A Girl – the inspirational story of Melbourne Cup-winning jockey, Michelle Payne.

The film features internationally acclaimed actress Teresa Palmer in the role of Michelle Payne, who in 2015 became the first female jockey in history to win the Melbourne Cup. Featuring Rachel Griffiths in her directional debut and Michelle Payne’s brother Stevie playing himself, Ride Like A Girl is set to bring the joy of thoroughbred racing and the magic of the Melbourne Cup to cinema screens across Australia from Thursday, 26 September.
