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

His powerful Godolphin operation first flew the Melbourne Cup flag with by Faithful Son, which finished seventh in 1998.

English stayer Cross Counter, ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, gave Dubai-based Godolphin stable its first Melbourne Cup with victory in Australia's largest and most prestigious horse race on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, second and third place went to Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran.

In a statement the RSPCA said there was a growing number of Australians who felt uncomfortable watching horse racing.

But it was also noted in the coverage that the horse frequently did this before races, including when he ran without incident last start in the Caulfield Cup to finish third.

It was a relief for McEvoy, who was blocked when Aidan O'Brien-trained Cliffsofmoher pulled up lame early in the race.

Cross Counter was the final victor of the Melbourne Cup after a nail-biting final, taking the lead in the very last seconds of the home stretch.

It's the first time an England-trained horse has won the Cup, with Charlie Appleby winning after several attempts.

Admire Rakti was a Japanese racehorse who collapsed and died from cardiac arrest at the Melbourne Cup in 2014. I was back a bit further than I wanted but I knew I was full of running. The horse could not be saved and was euthanised.

Kerrin McEvoy, who rode the race victor Cross Counter, was fined $3,000 for also exceeding the whip limit, using it nine times before the final 100 metres.

"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.

Appleby said the Melbourne Cup had been on his "bucket list for a long time".

Two of his three Cup wins have come since that move. He's the one that's given us the encouragement to take the chances in what we do.

"We have campaigned over here the last three years now and have been competitive but we have always learnt each trip what horse we felt was going to be needed on the big day".
