Oliver Special Guest At Champions-Australian Racing Museum
Australian Hall of Fame jockey Damien Oliver will be a special guest tonight for the talk series Tuesdays@Champions in Melbourne where he will place his 2002 Melbourne Cup trophy on display. The trophy holds significant symbolic experience for Oliver, who earned it for his winning Melbourne Cup ride aboard the Dermot Weld-trained Media Puzzle, just a week after his brother Jason was killed in a track riding accident. With the 2008/09 season drawing to a close, Oliver is chasing his 7th Scobie Breasley Medal and is head & head with arch rival Craig Williams for the Melbourne Jockeys Premiership.
