Savage reaction to horse being euthanised after Melbourne Cup 'tragedy'

Magic Circle ridden by Fran Berry won at Sandown Park in May Six things to know about the 2018 Melbourne Cup race

The Melbourne Cup is the race that "drives us all", the Youngstar jockey said.

That's a strike rate of 20% for the group - the racing arm of Sheikh Mohammed's Darley breeding operation - which has outposts in Britain, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Ireland, France, the USA and Australia.

After turning into the straight among the tailenders, Cross Counter finished with a withering burst down the outside to record a stunning win, outlasting another United Kingdom star, Marmelo.

Yet, while Appleby was quick to credit Sheikh Mohammed, it was the aforementioned McEvoy - basking in the glory of a third Melbourne Cup win - who recalled their early days on the A1, driving to meetings at Doncaster and York.

Appleby was appointed as a Godolphin trainer in July 2013, after 15 years working for Sheikh Mohammed as a travelling head lad, stable head lad and assistant trainer.

I've spoken to his highness (Sheikh Mohammed) and he's over the moon about this result - it's a challenge that's been a long road.

While Cross Counter won the Cup, the Aidan O'Brien-trained horse broke down in the first 600m and failed to run any futher.

In a statement, RSPCA Australia spokesperson Jane Speechley said: "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".

"What it has done is open the floodgates for Europe winning this just about every single year", he said.

"This is all for Sheikh Mohammed and the royal family and
Godolphin, and for me to say thank you for giving me this opportunity", he said.

Godolphin's other two Cup runners were unplaced, as the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Best Solution did not jump with the field and lost six lengths at the start of the race.

In the 158th running of Australia's "race that stops a nation", trainer Charlie Appleby saw his charge, ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, lead home a 1-2-3 for British-trained runners on a very wet track at Flemington Racecourse in Victoria. "I've a good photo of him leading me on Into The Dark at Doncaster one day when he won his maiden", he said.

The stewards' report listed Marmelo, as well as Aidan O'Brien's Yucatan (11th), as mildly lame after the race, while fellow Werribee resident Magic Circle (16th) displayed signs of an exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage post-race.

He returned a year ago, with success, and for the 2018 spring carnival had an early victory with Jungle Cat at Group One level.

Cross Counter wins the 2018 Melbourne Cup. The winning jockey, Australian Kerrin McEvoy now has three Melbourne Cups to his name after winning the race on Brew as an apprentice in 2000 and Almandin in 2016.

Before today, the mega stable had come away with just three second places and two thirds in the Cup.
