More drama at Melbourne Cup, horse and jockey crash to the ground

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

Finche and Rostropovich finished fourth and fifth respectively, with Youngstar 5.75L back in sixth.

The David Payne-trained Ace High followed up his poor Caulfield Cup showing with another disappointing display, finishing 28.15L away in 20th.

He (Michael Walker) gave him the most lovely ride.

A horse and jockey have been lucky to escape without serious injuries following a scary fall at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day.

The fines of the jockeys for excessive whip use would add to the anger of animal rights activists who were outraged by the euthanization of The Cliffsofmoher, which shattered a shoulder bone early in the race.

"The horse received immediate veterinary care, however it was unable to be saved due to the nature of the injury sustained".

Demi Lovato leaves rehab after mom says she’s 90 days sober
TMZ obtained photos of Lovato on a date with Enfants Riches Déprimés founder Henry Levy at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills on Saturday. It's been three months since the popstar was admitted into a rehabilitation facility.

Cross Counter wins the 2018 Melbourne Cup.

The Cliffsofmoher is the latest horse to have died on Melbourne Cup day in recent years, joining Verema (euthanased on track in 2013), Admire Rakti (suffered a heart attack in his stall in 2014), Araldo (euthanased after breaking his leg post-race in 2014), Red Cadeaux (euthanased two weeks after falling in 2015) and Regal Monarch (euthanased after a fall in Race Four of 2017).

UPDATES: THE horse that exited midway through the Melbourne Cup - the Aidan O'Brien-trained The Cliffsofmoher - has been euthanased. "They (Godolphin) have been striving to win this race for a long time".

"The third Melbourne Cup is a huge moment in my career, to win three is wonderful".

"Charlie Appleby has done the most unbelievable job this year, huge credit to him and his team".

Perth Racing managing director John Yovich said the best thing about the Ascot celebrations was the nine-race card on track once the Cup had run.

So too was Michael Walker on third placegetter A Prince of Arran, meaning all of the top three finishers breached the rules, along with three other riders in the race.
