Cliffsofmoher is the sixth horse to die in a Melbourne Cup since 2013.

Sheikh Mohammed at Tattersalls in 2014.

Appleby's lightly weighted three-year-old Cross Counter was given a great patient ride by Australian jockey Kerrin McEvoy, however it was Runway who set the early pace.

Sheikh Mohammed's personal Melbourne Cup drought had stretched three decades back to 1988 when he was first represented in the Cup by Authaal, trained by the late Colin Hayes, which finished 19th.

The Flemington track was lashed with up to 50mm of rain on the morning of the Melbourne Cup, but was the subject of two track upgrades later in the day as the sun broke through intermittently.

"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", said Speechley.

The victory by Cross Counter notched up 30 Group One wins for Godolphin worldwide this year.

Milan close to appointing Arsene Wenger as a coach
A host of big clubs are rumoured to have approached Wenger , with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid considering hiring a new manager. When asked by Sky Sports about his return to football, Wenger said: "Certainly at the beginning of 2019".

The Cliffsofmoher pulled up suddenly at around the 600m point of the race, clipping several other horses before languishing at the back of the pack.

"I'm just in the very fortunate position to have a great team behind me".

Bin Suroor's Best Solution and Cummings' Avilius finished eighth and 22nd respectively, but Appleby struck gold. "That's what it's all about, the learning curve". Obviously Godolphin has been a huge supporter of mine. For me, of course this is the biggest thing along with the Derby. "It's a dream. It has just been one of those unbelievable years".

Williams has already entered the history books by becoming the first trainer to win at every racecourse - Flat or jump racing - in the United Kingdom, but came up short with Magic Circle, a six-year-old gelding he bought last October for Koukash, a former refugee from the Middle East who has built up a multimillion dollar business in England's northwest.

But horse racing is a costly business and often prize money doesn't cover the costs unless the horse is used for breeding.

While the task of getting Cross Counter to one of the world's most gruelling races in peak fitness was performed to perfection, it was the horse who produced the ultimate winning effort.

The Chairmen and Directors of the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) later extended their sympathies, with Flemington Racecourse tweeting their condolences, "To the Williams family and the connections of The CliffsofMoher, which was euthanised after he went amiss in the Melbourne Cup". "I hope he's watching. And many, many congratulations".
