Melbourne Cup 2018: Horse dies, breaks down, The CliffsofMoher

"It's very sad. It could have been worse, (jockey) Ryan (Moore) could have taken a fall off him, someone could have been seriously injured".

The Cliffsofmoher is not the first horse to be put down at the Melbourne Cup.

In 2015, fan favourite Red Cadeaux was euthanised weeks after breaking his leg during the race.

The horse clipped the heels of another runner and injured a foreleg when falling as the field turned for home.

Parties galore are also in store across Perth, some of the biggest being held at Market Grounds, Henry Summer, The Stables, The Bach Club and, of course, Crown Perth, which past year hosted 24,000 WA racing fans on Cup day and expects even more today.

Limb injuries are the most common cause of death for racehorses on the track.

In 2013, French mare Verena broke down in the back straight and died and the following year the Melbourne Cup was stunned when two more horses died.

There have been several deaths in the past five years of the glamour race.

"World Animal Protection opposes the use of all animals in entertainment, including the use of horses in the racing industry".

A tarp was erected on the Flemington track as vets worked on The Cliffsofmoher.

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 Cliffsofmoher, one of the leading contenders in the 2018 Melbourne Cup, has sadly broken down as they went past the post for the first time.

In the same 2014 race, import Araldo had to be euthanised because of an injury suffered when he was returning to scale.

Channel 7 commentator Bruce McAvaney said it was a "tragedy" while his colleague Richard Freedman had made a point of mentioning how agitated The Cliffsofmoher looked before the race.

The $6.2 million race was won by Cross Counter, followed by Marmelo and A Prince of Arran.
