LETTERS: Name public holiday after female jockey

REGARDING the story: 'Princess of the Track' QT 4/11.

This race, or rather the winner, Michelle Payne and Prince of Penzance, certainly stopped a nation.

Perhaps we could have the often suggested Australian public holiday on Melbourne Cup Day in the future and name it after Michelle Payne, the first female winner of this race?
