The Cliffsofmoher euthanased on track after Melbourne Cup

The Cliffsofmoher suffered a fractured right shoulder and had to be euthanised.

Racing Victoria's (RV) Executive General Manager - Integrity Services Jamie Stier said the Irish galloper couldn't be saved due to the nature of the injury.

Racing Victoria said these incidents occurred "infrequently" and insisted Victoria has one of the "best safety records in the world in racing".

The unfortunate incident caused serious interference to the James Cummings-trained Avilius who finished 22nd.

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).

Online sports-betting sites crashed nationwide in the lead-up to the Melbourne Cup, the busiest betting event of the year.

Things had gone pear-shaped plenty of times over the years including in 2016 when the Sheikh remained unfulfilled despite gang-tackling the Melbourne Cup with five runners.

The horse was euthanised after the race.

Sportsbet on Tuesday said Perth punters were favouring favourites Magic Circle ($7), Yucatan ($7) and Marmelo ($13) but also had a soft spot for the outsiders.

Leading jockey Hugh Bowman has been suspended for a month for three separate offences when riding Melbourne Cup runner-up Marmelo on Tuesday.

Charlie Appleby savoured an "amazing" year after becoming the first British trainer to win the Melbourne Cup.

Cross Counter went on to end two decades of Melbourne Cup frustration for the powerful global stable Godolphin by winning Australia's greatest horse race.

Last year, Regal Monarch fell in race four on Melbourne Cup day.

The horse clipped the heels of another runner and injured a foreleg when falling as the field turned for home.

Winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy was also fined $3,000 for using his whip nine times before the last 100m.

As soon as Moore noticed something was amiss, he eased off on the horse and allowed it to slow down in an attempt to prevent further injury and pain.
