"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", RSPCA Australia spokeswoman Jane Speechley said.

Cross Counter's historic victory was described by his British trainer, Charlie Appleby, as "everybody's dream".

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.

On the injury sustained by The Cliffsofmoher, Joseph O'Brien - representing his father Aidan - said: "Unfortunately these things can happen to a horse galloping around a field at home".

The Aidan O'Brien-trained runner broke down just after crossing the post the first time - just 1000m after the start.

"It's very sad. It could have been worse, Ryan could have taken a fall off him". "He's really sweating up badly".

Last year Regal Monarch, which fell in race four on Melbourne Cup day, was euthanased after being injured during the race.

The 2014 race claimed the lives of two runners in favourite Admire Rakti and seventh-placed Araldo, while French mare Verema died after breaking her leg in the back straight of the 2013 edition.

The winning jockey, Australian Kerrin McEvoy now has three Melbourne Cups to his name after winning the race on Brew as an apprentice in 2000 and Almandin in 2016.

The gelding could be back next year but is certain to carry a heavier weight if he runs after sneaking into this year's race with just 51 kilograms.

The race was marred by the death of one of the entries, The Cliffsofmoher, who pulled up within the first 600m with a fractured right shoulder. He was treated by vets for three weeks after the race, but was eventually euthanised.

Godolphhin have had a tremendous Melbourne Spring Carnival after the Saeed Bin Suroor trained Best Solution carried their famous royal blue colours to victory in the Group 1 $5m Stella Artois Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 20.

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 past year hosted 24,000 WA racing fans on Cup day and expects even more today.

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.
