Payne proud to obtain OAM[/b]

............... on a day when another sportswoman thought her enhanced award was a 'bit slow coming', it was good to see both Gai Waterhouse and Michelle Payne being gracious and humble.


"Itís a great sport and something Iíve grown up with, something that I love and been passionate about my whole life so to receive a reward in honour of that is really special to me," ...........

"I feel really proud and honored to receive it. To be going into that stage of being a role-model for the younger generation coming through Ė people with dreams. Showing people that anything Is possible if you are prepared to work really hard and persevere through the tough times.

"Thatís what makes me really proud and if anyone can gain anything from that, it would be really special to me."

"The main messages Iíd like people to hear and see from my achievements is also, I try really hard.

[........... disappointingly, neither Racenet or punters.com.au seem to have considered MPs award noteable].

................. on the sbs and abc news tonight, there was no mention of either Gai Waterhouse or Michelle Payne

..... on a day when national awards favoured women, competition for 'media space' was vigorous ...... even so, given the prominence that racing has in the national mindset, it was a regrettable oversight to not mention two people that have stood their industry on its ear.

Pleading guilty, as an 'idiot' at times for sure, but this is an industry matter ............


......................................................... both these women, GW and MP, have been given national recognition today ............... following, at times, being disrespected ahead of, or after, their achievements on the national racing stage.

................. it is a sad reflection on a a racing media cohort too inclined to 'creative writing' of 'what if' stories ...... while also so too inclined to not report or investigate the actual news that matters.

[ ................ not surprisingly, the not-wily one wants me to be an industry spokesperson ... to '...take it up with the news organisations' ........... a stance that confirms expectations she is an 'industry plant'  and not an independent voice.]
