Michelle Payne Michelle Payne has claimed another slice of racing history

Michelle Payne has claimed another slice of racing history as the first Victorian dual licence holder to win aboard a horse she trains.

Last year, Payne became the first woman to ride a Melbourne Cup winner.

Duke Of Nottingham may not reach those heights but his win in a 1200m-maiden at Traralgon on Sunday was special for Payne and her family.

Payne said her father Paddy and nephew Sam played a big part at her farm which is called Nottingham after which her first winner is named.

“It’s a huge thrill” Payne told racing.com.

“I’ve got good people around me and it ‘s a big team effort. It’s a really special win.

“And Dad said if we won we’d be getting a new kitchen!.”

Payne bought Duke Of Nottingham as an unraced horse at mixed horse sale earlier this year and Sunday’s win came at his third start.

Payne’s achievement comes at a price with Racing NSW not recognising her dual licence and only allowing her to participate as a trainer.

That means she cannot ride Husson Eagle at Rosehill on Saturday with the gelding, trained by her brother Patrick, scheduled to run in the Starlight Stakes.

Husson Eagle is on his way to the Magic Millions carnival in January and Payne has applied to Racing Queensland for a visiting jockey’s licence which will be considered this week.

Later on the Traralgon program, the Chris Waller-trained Loving Home claimed the feature $50,000 Cup (1900m).
