It’s the race that stops a nation and last year for the first time ever a woman won the Melbourne Cup. So can history repeat itself? Well, Katelyn Mallyon has no doubt that it can. She is the only female jockey lining up for the big race on Tuesday. But to get there, Katelyn has had to overcome a career-threatening injury.
