Tragedy at Melbourne Cup as horse The CliffsofMoher put down after injury

"I did promise a swimming pool, then Cathy and myself have been looking for a bigger house. So look out", he said.

Admire Rakti and Araldo were both killed in the 2014 Melbourne Cup.

"With Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle I just gave him a blank page and said "ride it as you find it".

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy celebrated his third win in the two-mile race, drawing level with active jockeys Damien Oliver and Glen Boss.

Stewards delayed the second and third races onTuesday because of visibility concerns in the first race and say they hope to make up the time to ensure the Cup goes off at its scheduled time of 3pm.

"Internationally we have campaigned over here the last three years now and have been competitive but we have always learnt each trip what horse we felt was going to be needed on the big day".

It was that day he was noticed by the Godolphin hierarchy and he spent many years travelling the globe riding as the No.2 behind Frankie Dettori. It was only Cross Counter's eighth start, but he had missed a top-two finish only once.

Channel 7 confirmed a tweet from racing.com editor-in-chief Shane Anderson which revealed the five-year-old suffered a fractured shoulder early in the race and "could not be saved".

"This was an unfortunate incident that happens infrequently, with Victoria having one of the best safety records in world racing".

"We were lucky, bad with that horse breaking down", McEvoy said from the back of the four-year-old.

Jockey Ryan Moore checks on The Cliffsofmoher after it broke down in the first lap of the Melbourne Cup.

Wagering services run by Sportsbet, Ladbrokes and online betting exchange Betfair all went down, with punters temporarily unable to place bets on their smartphone apps or computers.

"Charlie Appleby has done the most unbelievable job this year, huge credit to him and his team".

"I'm so lucky to ride light in these handicaps and get support from these stables and it is a real honour to win in these colours".
