Melbourne Cup 'tragedy' as horse reportedly put down

Melbourne Cup sweepstakes warning
The most catastrophic year for the race was 2014, when six-year-old Japanese thoroughbred Admire Rakti collapsed straight after the Melbourne Cup and died in its stall, while Araldo broke his leg on a fence after taking fright and was euthanased.
Since first trying to win the Melbourne Cup in 1988 with Colin Hayes and Authaal, Sheikh Mohammed has invested millions in chasing the Holy Grail of Australian racing.
"This is a race we have been trying to win for years and I'm just fortunate to turn up with the right horse".
Ryan Moore attempts to stop The Cliffsofmoher after it injured its shoulder early in the Melbourne Cup.
"We're seeing to the growing number of Australians who feel uncomfortable about watching horse racing, and tragic incident like this provided a catalyst for that concern".
The Aidan O'Brien-trained horse suffered a fractured shoulder during Tuesday's race and had to be euthanised, Racing Victoria executive Jamie Stier said in a statement.
"Our sympathies are extended to Coolmore and the Williams family, the owners of The Cliffsofmoher, jockey Ryan Moore, trainer Aidan O'Brien and his staff who cared for the horse and are greatly saddened by their loss".
The jockey of The Cliffsofmoher has been praised for his heroic efforts to save his horse from suffering a painful death. "They then proceeded to switch over to give us the world broadcast feed, but unfortunately by then the race had already started", said Lloyd.
Described as a "tragedy" by veteran Seven commentator Bruce McAvaney, the United Kingdom raider pulled up lame as the field passed the finishing post for the first time.
Just past year Regal Monarch was also put down after breaking his leg at the carnival.
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. "It's not good but these things happen", Comerford said. "He's really sweating up badly".
Five other jockeys, including winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy, were also sanctioned for breaching the whip rule. As the remaining 23 horses passed the post, The Cliffsofmoher received medical attention before vets determined it was "unable to be saved".
