MELBOURNE Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Black , Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- History-making jockey Michelle Paine has been dealt a harsh reality check the day after becoming the first female rider to capture the 4.5-million-U.S. 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, Paine was booked to ride in the Kyneton Gold Cup on another Darren Weir-trained horse, Akzar.

"I'm going to be a true professional and a good ambassador for our sport Cheap Nike Air Max Black , and hopefully we can win another cup," Paine, 30, told Melbourne radio on Wednesday.

But doing hard work is always something that has always come easy to Paine, one of 10 children Cheap Air Max 1 Black , who's had to battle through enormous adversity to reach the pinnacle of her sport.

Paine 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, who has Down's Syndrome Cheap Air Max 95 Black , is Prince of Penzance's strapper and has been a constant source of inspiration to the family, Paine 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, the Paine daughters were shown to have the ambition - and gritty temperament - necessary for life as a professional jockey Cheap Air Max 90 Black , with Michelle becoming the fourth girl in the family to take up a career in the saddle.

In 2009, she became only the fifth female rider in Australian history to snare a Group One win, finishing first past the post aboard Allez Wonder in the Toorak Handicap for legendary 12-time Melbourne Cup winning trainer Bart Cummings.

Paine 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," Paine said.

In the barrier stalls Cheap Air Max Black , Paine took a quiet moment to herself to ponder whether Cummings and her mother were watching over her.

"Maybe both of them were up there (in heaven) and might of helped me get over the line," Paine said.

Paine almost never made it back to the saddle after a horrible fall in 2004 threatened to cut her career short.

Paine suffered a fractured skull and bruising of the brain, and following the scare her family pleaded with her give up the sometimes dangerous sport.

But Paine wouldn't be swayed from the unshakable belief that she was destined to win a Melbourne Cup.

"I've dreamed about it since I was five years old," she said.

"I always had faith in myself that I could do it, I don't know why I've always had a lot of self-confidence in my riding. I think it comes from my dad."

In the aftermath of her sensational win Cheap Nike Air Max 1 , Paine couldn't resist taking a potshot at those who had doubted her ability to perform on the big stage in what she considered a male-dominated, "chauvinistic" industry.

Paine said the critics of female jockeys could "get stuffed" in typically blunt Australian language.

Paine said she wanted to use the momentous occasion to get a "point across."

"I really hope that it helps with female jockeys, and not just jockeys but females in any sport and any aspect of life," she said on Wednesday.

Paine's ride on Prince of Penanze, for neighboring Ballarat trainer Darren Weir Cheap Nike Air Max 95 , was hailed as one of the best in recent history, with the 30-year-old receiving glowing praise from some of Australian racing's elite trainers.

"I had some messaged last night from (leading trainers) Gai Waterhouse and Lloyd Williams, and Lloyd said it was one of best rides he's seen in the Melbourne Cup," Paine said.

"I really believe you have to ride on instinct. I say that to Darren Weir all the time: 'Don't give me any instructions just let me ride the race'."

Which was exactly what she did on Tuesday - to astonishing effect. And, in the process Cheap Nike Air Max 90 , rode her way into the record books of the hallowed race.

The death toll from the Istanbul twin bombings near a major football stadium has risen to 44, Turkish Health Minister Recep Akdag said Monday.

The late Saturday attacks saw a car bomb explode outside the home stadium of football giants Besiktas and less than a minute later, a suicide bomber blew himself up near a group of police at a nearby park.

"It is very painful that we lost 36 of our police officers and eight civilians in a bloody attack," Akdag told parliament, Dogan news agency reported.

The blasts also injured 166 people and were claimed by the Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (TAK) Cheap Nike Air Max , which is seen as a radical offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Turkey has been hit by multiple attacks this year blamed on Kurdish militants and Islamic State jihadists.

The TAK group has claimed three major strikes t. Jerseys China   Jerseys China   Jerseys China   Jerseys Free Shipping   Authentic Jerseys China   New NBA Jerseys Wholesale   Baseball Jerseys Wholesale   Soccer Jerseys From China   MLB Jerseys China   Authentic NHL Jerseys Cheap
