Bolt onto a winner at Flemington

Usain Bolt has won again - after a tip from Michelle Payne to back her in the first race at Oaks Day.

The sprint champion, sporting a white suit, arrived at Flemington armed with tips from the Melbourne Cup winning jockey, excited for his first race day in Australia.

Bolt said Payne gave him some good advice.

"She's told me she's a sure win so I'm going to put down some money on Race 1," he told reporters.

Was he ever going to lose?

Payne was first across the line and saluted the judges on Tavi Bay at the juicy odds of 18 to 1.

Betting wasn't the only thing the ice-cool Jamaican was looking forward to on Ladies' Day.

"I'm excited about seeing the different hats, the different everything - and the beautiful ladies," he said.

However the world's fastest man was under no illusions he could match it with those out on the track.

"I'm no chance," he said with a chuckle.

Crowds are building on a sunny Thursday at Flemington ahead of the $1 million VRC Oaks for three-year-old fillies.
