MICHELLE PAYNE was the first female to win the MELBOURNE CUP in its 155 year history.
In this inspirational MICHELLE PAYNE biography, it shows how a female MELBOURNE CUP winner shattered gender prejudice in a male dominated sport.
It shows how Michelle trained and was determined to make it as an hockey. She came good to her promise with Stevie and after the first win they bought a farm and are now training race-horses together.
Michelle lost her mum at a very young age, she lived with her father and her nine other siblings: Michelle was the last born of her parents and loved her brother PADDY dearly who had the down syndrome sickness.
Michelle elder sister was also a hockey but retired to get married.
