DAMIEN OLIVER

  • Australia

The move from Perth to Melbourne in the late 1980s saw Damien Oliver quickly become one of the best riders in the land.

He kicked it off with Submariner for Bart Cummings in the Show Day Cup of 1990 and became the main hoop for the Freedman stable when it was winning multiple Melbourne Premierships.

Oliver is one of a select few to have won the 'grand slam' of Australian racing being the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Golden Slipper.

He won Melbourne Cups on Doriemus and Fiorente but the most famous was that on Media Puzzle for Irish legend Dermot Weld.

It came less than a week after his brother Jason died in a race fall in Western Australia. He is chasing George Moore's record for G1s in Australia.

Claiming the first of many Scobie Breasley Medals in 1996, Oliver was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall Of Fame in 2008.
