MELBOURNE Jordan 1 For Sale Online , Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- History-making jockey Michelle Payne has been dealt a harsh reality check the day after becoming the first female rider to capture the 4.5 million US dollar Melbourne Cup, having to front up on Wednesday to ride in a country meeting at Kyneton, an hour north of Melbourne.

Less than 24 hours after her shock win aboard 100-1 outsider Prince of Penzance in Australia's greatest horse race, Payne was booked to ride in the Kyneton Gold Cup at 4pm, on another Darren Weir-trained horse Jordan Shoes For Sale Online , Akzar.

"I'm going to be a true professional and a good ambassador for our sport, and hopefully we can win another cup," Payne, 30, told Melbourne radio on Wednesday morning.

But doing hard work is always something that has always come easy to Payne Air Jordan 13 Retro For Sale , one of 10 children, who's had to battle through enormous adversity to reach the pinnacle of her sport.

Payne was born into a down-to-earth racing family in the regional Victorian city of Ballarat. Her father, Paddy, was a jockey in New Zealand before he settled down to train horses on their farm.

She grew up without her mother Mary, who was tragically killed in a car accident when she was a baby.

Her brother Stevie Air Jordan 12 Retro For Sale , who has Down Syndrome, is Prince of Penzance's strapper and has been a constant source of inspiration to the family, Payne said.

"Stevie's a blessing to our family, my dad says it all the time. We're just so blessed to have him," she said on Wednesday.

"They can be so capable in so many ways. Stevie is so smart and I just really hope that message gets out loud and clear."

Growing up Air Jordan 11 Retro For Sale , the Payne daughters were shown to have the ambition - and gritty temperament - necessary for life as a professional jockey, with Michelle becoming the fourth girl in the family to take up a career in the saddle.

Payne said she would be forever indebted and grateful to Cummings also known as the 'Cups King' - who was honored at Tuesday's 155th edition of the Cup after his passing in August - for bucking the often patriarchal traditions of racing.

"He was amazing for my career ... he stuck his neck out, and gave girls a go Air Jordan 1 Retro For Sale ," Payne said.

In the barrier stalls, Payne took a quiet moment to herself to ponder whether Cummings and her mother were watching over her.
