Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy pre-race promise to wife

Dr Koukash at the barrier draw

He said: "It was an unbelievable run - I'm completely speechless".

An English-trained horse had never won the Melbourne Cup - the result gave England a 1-2-3.

Jamie Stier, Racing Victoria's manager of integrity services, confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon, The Age reported.

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

The stallion was euthanized after fracturing his right shoulder during the first 600 metres of the 2018 Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse on November 6, Australia's ABC news reported.

Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien, who had to settle for second in last year's Cup behind his son Joseph, trains Rostropovich as well as both of the Williams family's runners Yucatan and The Cliffsofmoher.

Described as a "tragedy" by veteran Seven commentator Bruce McAvaney, the United Kingdom raider pulled up lame as the field passed the finishing post for the first time.

What we learned from Duke’s big win over Kentucky
The game marked the first time Kentucky faced a ranked opponent in a season opener since a 79-71 overtime loss to Clemson in 1995. The Blue Devils' fabulous freshmen collectively laughed as if that mattered on Tuesday night.

According to the Daily Mail, The Cliffsofmoher was agitated before the start, with one commentator describing the horse as "melting like an ice cream". "He's really sweating up badly".

In 2014, Admire Rakti, who collapsed and died in his stall after the race, and Araldo, who broke his leg and was euthanased, were casualties. Sadly there was nothing they could do for The Cliffsofmoher, but Moore is thought to be uninjured.

"We were lucky to get through, said McEvoy, who won the Melbourne Cup for the third time".

Lat year Regal Monarch was put down after he fell during the final stretch of the race.

EARLIER: FEARS are growing for the future of The Cliffsofmoher after the Aidan O'Brien-trained galloper was forced to exit midway through the Melbourne Cup.

The rain caused delays to races two and three, and also to trains bringing racing fans to the course, according to tweets from Melbourne's public transport network.

Just previous year Regal Monarch was also put down after breaking his leg at the carnival. Jockey Joao Moreira was also injured in the fall.

Sheets and a tent were immediately put up to protect the horse and the tragic scene from shocked spectators, with some sharing photos online following the tragedy.
