The Cliffsofmoher couldn't be saved.

Vets were on hand at Werribee to inspect several other global horses from the race with Comerford telling Fairfax Media Yucatan, who stewards reported as lame in the near foreleg, had been out for a walk and would recover well.

Had he have not noticed or kept pushing, The Cliffsofmoher likely would have fell.

The Godolphin stable, owned by uber-wealthy Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed, finally broke their Melbourne Cup drought.

Equine Veterinarians Australia spokesman Ian Fulton, who was in attendance at Flemington, said Moore's actions should be praised.

'The jockey did a tremendous job to pull the horse up instantly and very carefully, ' Dr Fulton said.

"I had full vision, the jockey dismounted and kept the horse calm and the horse stood still".
