The Cup is a combination of wonderful stories - the tragedy that hit generations of Oliver's family; the love of an Irishman for a race on the other side of the world; and the burning but fruitless quest of an oli-rich sheikh to win Australia's greatest race. All of which were overwhelmed by the genius of a jockey and his capacity to win, for his brother.
The Cup is now a major motion picture directed by Simon Wincer, and featuring popular Australian actor/comedian Stephen Curry as Damien Oliver. The movie is due for release in October.
