British horse, Cross Counter crossing the finish line of the 2018 Melbourne Cup to win

Cross Counter has made history by becoming the first British‑trained racehorse to win the Melbourne Cup.

Charlie Appleby saddled the winner, ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, in the 158th running of Australia's famous race.

Cross Counter led home a 1‑2‑3 for British‑trained runners from Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran.

The Cliffsofmoher, trained in Ireland by Aidan O'Brien, suffered a fatal injury when breaking down early in the race.

Cross Counter is owned by Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin team, which also won the Derby at Epsom for the first time this year with the Appleby‑trained Masar.
