Anger over Melbourne Cup horse death

Anger over Melbourne Cup horse death

Cross Counter is listed as a four year in the form guide for the Melbourne Cup but is actually still a three year old back in the Northern Hemisphere and emulated the feats of last year's Melbourne Cup victor Rekindling who was also a Northern Hemisphere three year old.

"I fit into my G-string now", Koukash told racing.com three days before the race.

"I am just so delighted".

Cross Counter ran down Marmelo over the final 200 metres to claim victory with Prince of Arran third.

The Cliffsofmoher becomes the 6th horse to die as a result of the Melbourne Cup since 2013.

As the first British trainer to win, he said: "I'm so lucky.to be in this position to be able to train these horses".

"You get out of bed very early and spend a lot of time on the back of horses".

"It is with sadness that we confirm that The Cliffsofmoher had to be humanely euthanised after sustaining a fractured right shoulder during the running of the Melbourne Cup at Flemington", Stier said.

Yucatan started favourite in the race at 5-1 after drifting to 7-1 following the barrier draw that saw him jump from gate 23.

McEvoy's win on the 9-1 shot followed his Melbourne Cup triumphs on Almandin in 2016 and Brew in 2000.

"That's what it's all about, the learning curve. I think I've got a kilo of water in each boot". For me, of course this is the biggest thing along with the Derby. "It's a dream. It has just been one of those wonderful years".

And despite coming so close to winning Australia's most famous race in his second attempt with Marmelo, trainer Hughie Morrison was understandably proud at the performance of the stayer to run second to the younger and lighter-weighted Cross Counter.

Cross Counter is also a member of a family with which Sheikh Mohammed has been involved through four generations.

"I did promise (the kids) a swimming pool".

The Cliffofmoher made his racing debut in Ireland two years ago.

Victoria Racing Club chairwoman Amanda Elliot paid tribute to the persistence of Sheikh Mohammed, who is also the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates.

Craig Williams still needs a Melbourne Cup win to join a select group of jockeys to have won a Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Golden Slipper.

That's because of increasing attention being given to The Everest in mid-October.

And there have also been the exploits of the world's top-rated horse, Winx, who smashed legendary sprinter Black Caviar's Australian win record in August and then late last month clinched a record fourth Cox Plate and 29th victory in a row.
