Punter wins close to $100000 on 2018 Melbourne Cup bet

Magic Circle is among the favorites for the 2018 Melbourne Cup at Flemington on November 6

Cross Counter has won the $7.05 million Melbourne Cup at Flemington, beating Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran.

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.

Regal Monarch, trained by Chris Waller, was euthanised after falling in race four past year, while British stayer Red Cadeaux was put down two weeks after falling and breaking a leg in the 2015 Melbourne Cup.

"It is with sadness that we confirm that The Cliffsofmoher had to be humanely euthanised after sustaining a fractured right shoulder", racetrack executive general manager Jamie Stier said.

After watching video of Kerrin McEvoy galloping Cross Counter a week ago Appleby knew Sheikh Mohammed's first Cup victor was on track.

Irish horse The Cliffsofmoher has suffered a harrowing injury during the running of the 2018 Melbourne Cup.

He returned a year ago, with success, and for the 2018 spring carnival had an early victory with Jungle Cat at Group One level.

Midterms Usher Wave Of Young, Democratic Women Of Color Into House
Democrats won the national election (despite important setbacks in the US Senate) because of women candidates and women voters. Omar's district has become increasingly foreign-born with now nearly 15 percent of the region being born outside of the U.S.

"And yeah look, I'm just lucky I can ride light on these lovely stayers prepared unbelievably well by Godolphin and Charlie Appleby".

The win gives the global racing operation Godolphin its first Cup win, while jockey Kerrin McEvoy won for the third time.

Speaking afterwards, Appleby said: "This is everybody's dream".

"I have spoken to his highness and he's over the moon about this result."

"It's such a huge thrill to win this for Sheikh Mohammed, to repay the faith that he showed in me", McEvoy said.

The 8-1 chance Cross Counter, who broke the track record when winning the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood in the summer, won by a length from the Hughie Morrison-trained Marmelo, with A Prince Of Arran third for Charlie Fellowes.

"I am just so delighted".

Cubs' Anthony Rizzo Wins 2nd Gold Glove
Rizzo won for the first time in 2016, when he was also the Platinum Glove Award victor for the entire National League . A total of eight outfielders for the Pirates have won a Gold Glove , with Marte being the last in 2015 and 2016.

"I did promise (the kids) a swimming pool", McEvoy said.

Racing Victoria vets found he was lame in the near foreleg after the race.

It's been a stellar season for Appleby, landing his first Epsom Derby, recording a victory at the Breeders Cup meeting in Kentucky and then Tuesday's Melbourne Cup.

Horse trainer Aidan O'Brien has confirmed that his colt The Cliffsofmoher died during the Melbourne Cup.

"The Chairmen and Directors of the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) extend their sympathies to the Williams family and the connections of The CliffsofMoher, which was euthanised after he went amiss in the Lexus Melbourne Cup", a statement read.

"He ran his race", Bowman said.
