Can you ride a horse like the wind, act up a storm and take fame in your stride? Oh, and be a girl aged eight to nine years, to boot?
That's the requirement for a prospective junior star of Ride Like A Girl, a movie on the life of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup.
When the call went out last week for auditions to play the young Payne, the producers were hit by a staggering 1000 inquiries in the first day.
"The fact it virtually shut down our casting agent's office for a day is very unusual," said producer Richard Keddie. "The interest in our story, nothing surprises us. It's such a beautiful story about such wonderful people."
Among those bidding for the role is Lancefield's Emmy O'Meara, along with her sister, Nellie.
Their Mum, Viv, threw their names into the ring after urging from friends. "The girls were both rapt, they couldn't believe it," Viv said.
"They just looked at me, 'you mean I might be in a movie?' I said 'yeah, but there is also a fair chance you won't be because I think there will be a lot of kids putting their hand up for it'."
But Emmy, 9, and Nellie, 8, reckon they might have the inside running for the role.
After Payne's historic 2015 win, a quarter horse was born on the O'Meara property.
"We were trying to think of names," Viv said, "and then we just went, 'it has to be Michelle'.
"So the girls called it Micha."
