The Cliffsofmoher death prompts outrage after Melbourne Cup

In Australia, we aren't accustomed to wet weather racing so who will be favoured by a wet track or rain during the race? "I'm just in a fortunate position to have the horses to make the call on which are the right ones to bring down here".

Marmelo was second with A Prince Of Arran, victor of Saturday's Lexus Stakes at the same course, in third.

The famous stable has won nearly every big race going but the Melbourne Cup had continued to elude them.

Morrison admitted he thought Marmelo and Hugh Bowman had stolen a winning margin at the furlong and said the six-year-old was simply beaten by a talented horse with a significant 4kg weight swing.

"But when you have the master like Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle, he takes a lot of confidence in and down the back straight I could see what he was trying to do".

The Cliffsofmoher (IRE), a Coolmore horse trained by Aidan O'Brien and ridden by Ryan Moore, broke down early in the race and had to be euthanized.

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.

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.

"European defence cooperation is not about creating an EU army", EU foreign relations chief Federica Mogherini said in February - in one of many similar such remarks.

"This is all down to Sheikh Mohammed".

It was also first win for Godolphin, the mega-stable founded by the Vice President of the UAE and Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. "I knew that if he found the gaps, this horse has got the gears to pick up".

The Cliffsofmoher is one of more than 100 horses killed on Australian racetracks each year.

"It's great to be stood here and it's fantastic for Godolphin", Appleby told CNN affiliate Seven News Australia after Cross Counter and McEvoy's win.

"I did promise (the kids) a swimming pool". But whoever had won it, we would have all been congratulating one another.

"Charlie and myself used to travel to Doncaster and Chester and all of the tracks up north in England, back when I was over there riding, and all of those miles meant this, winning the Melbourne Cup".

The victory had strong a connection to Sheikh Mohammed's Darley stallion operation through his sire Teofilo for whom he became a 15th G1 victor.

He is equally determined to celebrate by stripping down to his G-string, despite the Victoria Racing Club saying it would be a shame if the enthusiastic owner had to miss the presentation due to a "wardrobe malfunction".
