Well I seem to be busy at present. I guess that’s what going into Spring does!
Last week I went to the movies to see Ride Like a Girl. It was directed by Rachel Griffiths who was one of the sisters in the TV series Sisters and Brothers. It was about the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup – a horse race that many Australians and New Zealanders stop to watch on the first Tuesday in November. Whether we are horse racing enthusiasts or not.
It was an inspiring movie and I loved the story and the scenery. She is still quite young and is now a trainer. She was the youngest of ten and had one brother who has Down’s syndrome. He became a strapper (someone who grooms and cares for the horses) and he played himself in the movie. Delightful.
