The Cliffsofmoher euthanased on track after Melbourne Cup Six things to know about the 2018 Melbourne Cup race

Perth Racing managing director John Yovich said the best thing about the Ascot celebrations was the nine-race card on track once the Cup had run.

The condition of The CliffsofMoher, which was being ridden by star English jockey Ryan Moore, is not yet known.

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

"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", Stier said.

Before the race, The Cliffsofmoher was "sweating up", which can sometimes be an indication a horse is in distress.

Guardiola added: "After that, if the people say it is just about that [money] we have to accept it". We work a lot in a good way and that's why I always defend us - especially my players - what we do".

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

The 38-year-old from Streaky Bay, South Australia rode Brew to victory in the 2000 Melbourne Cup, and followed that win in 2016 with victory on board Almandin. All four of the top finishers were bred in Great Britain.

"In that field alone, horses were hit with whips several hundred times at least, with the highest number of hits occurring in the final 100 metres, when they are already exhausted".

"They [Godolphin] have been striving to win this race for a long time", McEvoy said.

"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".

Work is continuing on this, he said, adding: "Don't be under any illusions that there remains a significant amount of work to do". He also shot down a suggestion by Brexit secretary Dominic Raab that any backstop should have a three-month time limit.

He timed his charge to perfection, taking the lead in the final strides for a third Melbourne Cup victory, with his family set to benefit from his slice of the prize money estimated at $200,000 (£110,000).

"Considering Australians hate cruelty to animals, commemorating a day on which horses routinely die in the Melbourne Cup is fundamentally un-Australian", a PETA spokesman said.

He first tried to win the Melbourne Cup back in 1988, and through the Godolphin royal blue colours since 1998.

Another Aidan O'Brien horse, Yucatan, had gone off as an early favorite but finished 11th.
