The horse was the sixth to die as a result of the Melbourne Cup since 2013.

Before the race, The Cliffsofmoher was "sweating up", which can sometimes be an indication a horse is in distress. Hind limb injury caused 17 deaths.
Four of those have been Europeans stationed at Werribee, with Araldo the exception when he got his leg caught in a fence in a freak accident while returning to scale after the 2014 race. Admire Rakti died in his stall after finishing last.
Another Aidan O'Brien horse, Yucatan, had gone off as an early favorite but finished 11th.

The Daily Telegraph has reported the star United Kingdom galloper had a fractured right shoulder and "could not be saved".
He broke down near the winning post the first time and was euthanised after being found to have fractured a shoulder. Sadly there was nothing they could do for The Cliffsofmoher, but Moore is thought to be uninjured.
It came after he was spotted looking very agitated moments before the start.
Channel 7 commentator Bruce McAvaney said it was a "tragedy" while his colleague Richard Freedman had made a point of mentioning how agitated The Cliffsofmoher looked before the race. "He's really sweating up badly".
