Ride Like A Girl is the incredible and moving true story of Australian horse-racing legend Michelle Payne.
As a little girl, Michelle Payne (Teresa Palmer) dreams of the impossible: winning the
Melbourne Cup — horse-racing’s toughest two-mile race. The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy (Sam Neill). She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finally finds her feet. But a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream. But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie (played by Stevie Payne himself), Michelle will not give up. Against all medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history.
