Do the Stweards normally allow such a close call ?

Was thinking the same. If there’s a protest or delay she’s no hope. Plus they are meant to be on course by the race prior, I believe.

Well, that was a big improvement on Giles Thompson.  There might be hope for racing yet.

One of the attractions of sport, and racing in particular, is the stories it tells, and in my time there has never been a more fantastic story than Michelle Payne*.  You couldn't imagine such a story.  You would return the script and ask the author to try be more realistic.  

* OK, maybe its a photo finish with Steven Bradbury.  That was insane.

Nice picks Tontonan. The Payne family story is quite incredible. I'm not confident but I really hope the movie is more akin to a doco with licence than to a soap opera.

Fidler did a Conversations episode with Bradbury a few months ago. Incredible story.

I couldn't imagine Takeover Target and Joe Janiak?
