Melbourne Cup: UK galloper The CliffsofMoher put down after serious injury
Charlie Appleby savoured an "amazing" year after becoming the first British trainer to win the Melbourne Cup.
Regal Monarch, trained by Chris Waller, was euthanised after falling in race four previous year, while British stayer Red Cadeaux was put down two weeks after falling and breaking a leg in the 2015 Melbourne Cup.
Melbourne Cup day has proved a lethal undertaking for runners in recent years, with six horses killed after complications since 2013.
Horse trainer Aidan O'Brien has confirmed that his colt The Cliffsofmoher died during the Melbourne Cup.
The Cliffsofmoher was euthanised on the track after fracturing his shoulder early in the Melbourne Cup.
"This is a race we have been trying to win for years and I'm just fortunate to turn up with the right horse".
Leading jockey Hugh Bowman has been suspended for a month for three separate offences when riding Melbourne Cup runner-up Marmelo on Tuesday.
"Our thoughts are with animal lovers across the country who have been affected by this loss, and confronted by the very real risks posed by racing to the horses involved", RSPCA Australia spokeswoman Jane Speechley said.
McEvoy's association with Godolphin ignited the day he rode Beekeeper in the Melbourne Cup, finishing third behind Media Puzzle in 2002.
It came after he was spotted looking very agitated moments before the start.
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 Melbourne Cup dam burst in spectacular fashion for the Poms as Cross Counter for Appleby got home over fellow Englishmen Hughie Morrison (Marmelo) and Charlie Fellowes (A Prince Of Arran).
