Cup-winning sheikh will be back for more

The Cliffsofmoher's jockey Ryan Moore looks dejected as he walks off the track, while Cross Counter's win in the Melbourne Cup plays on the big screen behind him.

The race was marred by the Aidan O'Brien-trained The Cliffsofmoher breaking down with a reported fractured shoulder as the field passed the winning post the first time.

Before the race, The Cliffsofmoher was "sweating up", which can sometimes be an indication a horse is in distress.

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

"The horse received immediate veterinary care, however it was unable to be saved due to the nature of the injury sustained.

It's sinking in now", Appleby said afterwards.

Cross Counter, a four-year-old bay gelding trained by Charlie Appleby and based at Newmarket, England, was quoted early at 10 to 1.

So too was Michael Walker on third placegetter A Prince of Arran, meaning all of the top three finishers breached the rules, along with three other riders in the race.

Online sports-betting sites crashed nationwide in the lead-up to the Melbourne Cup, the busiest betting event of the year.

"In that field alone, horses were hit with whips several hundred times at least, with the highest number of hits occurring in the final 100 metres, when they are already exhausted".

Bowman, who finished second behind British stayer Cross Counter in the feature race, was initially banned for 41 race meetings but had his suspension reduced to 35 meetings.

One of the most influential racing operations in the world, the Sheikh Mohammed-backed Godolphin stable has been trying to win the Melbourne Cup since 1998. "What a field to do it in.

They (Godolphin) have been striving to win this race for a long time".

During the trophy presentation, rain which had affected the lead-up to the race again started to fall at Flemington.

"I'm absolutely delighted. This is everybody's dream", said Appleby, who also prepared Epsom Derby victor Masar.

"Considering Australians hate cruelty to animals, commemorating a day on which horses routinely die in the Melbourne Cup is fundamentally un-Australian", a PETA spokesman said.
