Meet the Jockey Making History

As a child, Michelle Payne dreamed of one day winning the Melbourne Cup. Following in her father’s footsteps, she began horse racing at an early age, often competing as the only woman in the traditionally male-dominated sport. In 2015, she made history, becoming the first woman in 150 years to win the Melbourne Cup. Today, she’s paving the way for the next generation of women to ride on and live out their dreams.
