THE owner of The Cliffsofmoher, the horse that died at the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, has revealed how heartbroken he is over the tragic event.

The five-year-old had to be put down after fracturing a shoulder early in the race, sparking outrage among critics of the racing industry.

Owner Nick Williams opened up on the devastating impact of his horse’s death on everyone involved with The Cliffsofmoher, telling broadcaster Gerard Whateley it ruined the entire Melbourne Cup for him and the team.

“It destroys it for us,” Williams said on SEN radio today. “The lads that look after the horses and live with them 24/7, they’re absolutely devastated, and I’d have to say no more devastated than us.

“It’s unfortunate when one of these catastrophic events take place. I really don’t know what to say.”
