Melbourne Cup Racehorse The Cliffsofmoher Euthanised After Injury

  • Rekindling's trainer Joseph O'Brien and jockey Corey Brown with the Melbourne Cup

Racing Victoria confirmed jockey Ryan Moore was uninjured in the incident.

He is the sixth horse to die in the Melbourne Cup since 2013 according to the RSPCA.

Parties galore are also in store across Perth, some of the biggest being held at Market Grounds, Henry Summer, The Stables, The Bach Club and, of course, Crown Perth, which a year ago hosted 24,000 WA racing fans on Cup day and expects even more today.

Mr O'Brien said: "Unfortunately these things can happen to a horse galloping around the field at home".

Limb injuries are the most common cause of death for racehorses on the track.

A deluge of rain made for a treacherous start to Melbourne Cup day, forcing delays to races and trains to Flemington Racecourse, and leading to calls for the $7.3 million feature race to be cancelled.

In the same 2014 race, import Araldo had to be euthanised because of an injury suffered when he was returning to scale. Araldo was put down several hours after the race after he fractured his leg when he kicked a fence.


"World Animal Protection opposes the use of all animals in entertainment, including the use of horses in the racing industry".

Veterinarians rushed on to the track as soon as the race was completed as a tarp was erected around the fallen stayer.

Tellytrack (Dstv 239) are taking Races 7/8/9/10 - the Melbourne Cup being the seventh race and off at 06h00.

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.

"Cliffsofmoher, he's melting like an ice-cream at the moment", Seven commentator Richard Freedman said.

The Melbourne Cup has again been marred by the death of a horse, this time the Irish-trained The Cliffsofmoher. "He's really sweating up badly". Meanwhile, second and third place went to Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran.
