"The horse received immediate veterinary care, however it was unable to be saved due to the nature of the injury sustained".

Kerrin McEvoy joked in the press in the days prior to the Melbourne Cup that he would buy his wife a new house if he was to win the famous race for a third time.

"He was very responsive and he quickened very nicely for me, I was there with 100m to go, full credit to Charlie Appleby and the team, it is a huge thrill to win Sheikh Mohammed's first Melbourne Cup".

"I'm absolutely delighted. This is everybody's dream", said Appleby, who also prepared Epsom Derby victor Masar.

"I went to Dubai, expected to be there for two weeks and ended up staying for the whole carnival, that was the carnival of 2003, that is where the association started".
