Summary A story about triumph over adversity. At the heart of this true story is Damien Oliver, a young jockey who loses his only brother in a tragic racing accident, hauntingly reflecting of the way their father died 27 years earlier. After suffering through a series of discouraging defeats, Damien teams with Irish trainer Dermot Weld and the horse Media Puzzle, and triumphs at the 2002 Melbourne Cup in one of the most thrilling finales in sporting history.
