Tragedy at Melbourne Cup

Tragedy at Melbourne Cup

This is a tragic outcome for both horses and we expect there to be a full and transparent investigation undertaken into both incidents.

Events like these are a stark reminder to the community of the real risks to horses associated with racing.

Sadly, injury and death are the price some horses pay for our entertainment in a sport that puts intense pressure on animals to perform to the limits of their endurance.
