Melbourne Cup: Cross Counter trainer Charlie Appleby savours win in Australian race

Who will win the Melbourne Cup

Racing Victoria, the governing body in Australia's southern state, said The Cliffsofmoher "was unable to be saved due to the nature of the injury sustained".

Since first trying to win the Melbourne Cup in 1988 with Colin Hayes and Authaal, Sheikh Mohammed has invested millions in chasing the Holy Grail of Australian racing.

Vets were on hand at Werribee to inspect several other global horses from the race with Comerford telling Fairfax Media Yucatan, who stewards reported as lame in the near foreleg, had been out for a walk and would recover well.

The Cliffsofmoher was an Irish horse ridden by English jockey Ryan Moore.

'I had full vision, the jockey dismounted and kept the horse calm and the horse stood still.

Election Day arrives - but more than 600K Utahns already have voted
After the ballots are logged in, the signatures on the envelopes are validated not by computers, but people. The 19-year-old voted for the first time on Monday. "I couldn't have asked for a better start", Vu said.


Parties galore are also in store across Perth, some of the biggest being held at Market Grounds, Henry Summer, The Stables, The Bach Club and, of course, Crown Perth, which past year hosted 24,000 WA racing fans on Cup day and expects even more today.

"It was just an awesome effort by the jockey that needs to be acknowledged".

Moore has not spoken to the media following the race but he is reportedly "shattered".

Racing Victoria will collect the horse's medical records and obtain The Cliffsofmoher's exercise records in consultation with the stable.

He said Rostropovich, who finished fifth in the race - lending further weight to the argument that northern hemisphere three-year-olds are at an advantage - will return home for a break.

Christidis was taken by helicopter to the Mackay Base Hospital, 100 kilometres (60 miles) to the south, where he died. He had dived into the water to give the woman her turn on the board when he was attacked, O'Connell said.


The activist group called The Cliffsofmoher "the most recent victim of the cruel annual spectacle".

In 2014 two horses Admire Rakti and Araldo were put down following the race.

In 2015, fan favourite Red Cadeaux was euthanised weeks after breaking his leg during the race.

"To get the job done, it was just a great achievement by the whole team but more importantly the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed to get this team of horses and put us out there to go and take on the world", Appleby said.

"Our sympathies are extended to Coolmore and the Williams family, the owners of The Cliffsofmoher, jockey Ryan Moore, trainer Aidan O'Brien and his staff who cared for the horse and are greatly saddened by their loss", he added.
