Cross Counter storms to Melbourne Cup win

The Laytown Races

The Laytown Races

The win also represented another first: the breaking of Godolphin and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's 30-year drought at the race.

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

It's great that an English trainer has finally won this race". Only Bobby Lewis and Harry White have won more with four victories apiece.

Marmelo will require a vet clearance before being allowed to race again.

"With 51kg he was unknown in the ground, he was unknown in the two miles but I was lucky to have a horse still full of running at the 400m, it was a tough call but my gut was telling me to go that way and I'm glad I did now".

"We were lucky, bad with that horse breaking down", McEvoy said from the back of the four-year-old.

Wagering services run by Sportsbet, Ladbrokes and online betting exchange Betfair all went down, with punters temporarily unable to place bets on their smartphone apps or computers.

Mac Miller’s Death Ruled Accidental Overdose; Fentanyl, Cocaine Found In Rapper’s System
Last year, the country experienced a record number of drug overdoses, an increase driven by synthetic opioid use, the CDC found. Just before his death , Miller had announced a joint tour with Thundercat, to start in October.

Godolphin's owner, Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, had spent a fortune sending horses to the "race that stops a nation" over two decades and now tastes victory after linking up with Newmarket trainer Appleby.

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". He's the one that's given us the encouragement to take the chances in what we do.

"Coming into today, this horse ticked a lot of boxes".

"I am just so delighted".

"You've got to have the luck but Kerrin has the brain and astute mentality to find those gaps".

Race favourite Yucatan and Bowman's mount Marmelo were reported as being lame after the race, Avilius suffered lacerations when colliding with Thecliffsofmoher as it shifted suddenly due to its injury, and Magic Circle - which was heavily backed in betting markets - suffered internal bleeding and finished near the rear of the field.

The Cliffsofmoher was euthanised on the track after fracturing his shoulder early in the Melbourne Cup.
