Melbourne Cup: The biggest flops

Melbourne Cup: The biggest flops

"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", Jamie Stier, Racing Victoria's manager of integrity services, 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".

Meanwhile, second and third place went to Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran.

"Today's tragedy is a stark reminder of the risks these horses face every time they run, and highlights that behind the gloss and glamour of Cup celebrations there is a dark reality".

Regal Monarch, trained by Chris Waller, was euthanised after falling in race four a year ago, while British stayer Red Cadeaux was put down two weeks after falling and breaking a leg in the 2015 Melbourne Cup.

"I went to Dubai, expected to be there for two weeks and ended up staying for the whole carnival, that was the carnival of 2003, that is where the association started".

There was a point there I thought we might have won the Melbourne Cup.

Why James Milner was furious with teammates during Arsenal match
Alexandre Lacazette earned Arsenal a point at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday , cancelling out James Milner's second-half opener. When you have a compact formation you give the opposition the opportunity to pass into a certain place and then you press.

The victor stormed down from the outside in the final several hundred meters for a length victory. "What a field to do it in".

"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".

"Coming over here it was a big thing on our bucket list", said the 43-year-old Englishman, who trains in Newmarket.

"It's fantastic to be second in a Melbourne Cup, but to be second when you almost won [is hard]", Morrison said.

The forecasted rain arrived early on the day of the Cup, with more than 50 millimetres falling in the hours leading up to the race.

The horse's trainer, Aidan O'Brien, said he was relieved jokey Moore was unharmed.

Japan-based Chestnut Coat, trained by Yoshito Yahagi, was 14th.
