The Godolpin racing stable of Dubai’s Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum has won its first Melbourne Cup after trying to do so for two decades. Godolphin’s "Cross Counter" has become the first British-trained horse to win the prestigious race, with jockey Kerrin McEvoy riding a Melbourne Cup winner for the third time. Race favourite "Yucatan", which is part-owned by businessman Lloyd Williams, finished in 11th place. Another horse owned by Williams, "The Cliffs of Moher", was put down after fracturing its right shoulder.
