Yucatan remained the favourite despite going out from $5.50 to $7 at the jump, but Cross Counter stormed home to make one racing fan $450,000 richer.

TAB revealed that on Monday morning, a racing fan - seemingly very content with their selection - laid down $50,000 on Cross Counter to win at $10 for a potential payout of $500,000.

The horse's trainer, Aidan O'Brien, said he was relieved jokey Moore was unharmed.

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

Marmelo was second and A Prince of Arran two lengths behind in third.

Ryan Moore pulls up The Cliffsofmoher after it broke down in the first lap of the Melbourne Cup.

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).

Sheets and a tent were immediately put up to protect the horse and the tragic scene from shocked spectators, with some sharing photos online following the tragedy.

The long list included "Mexicans", "Guatemalans", as well as "the Menendez brothers. and several Babadooks". Ingraham asked Pirro what she's heard about the caravan. "Basically, yeah", responded Thompson's Clarke.

A win for Marmelo would have completed a dream run for jockey Hugh Bowman, who has enjoyed a marvellous ride aboard superstar mare and four-time Cox Plate victor, Winx.

"I had to go my own way and we were full of running".

But Charlie Appleby insisted the Sheikh had remained patient and unflustered - and that helped lay the foundations for Cross Counter's 2018 win.

"I think it will mean a huge amount to him, but I imagine he will be just as pleased about the fact that this whole year has been really one series of continued successes", Anderson said of the Cup win.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained horse suffered a fractured shoulder during Tuesday's race and had to be euthanised, Racing Victoria's executive general manager - integrity services, Jamie Stier, said in a statement. The horse could not be saved and was euthanised.

Race-winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy was a stable rider for Godolphin before parting ways to ride freelance in 2014.

"People under pressure make rash decisions, I hope we're making the right decisions now".
