"The exact cause of death is yet to be determined, although the circumstances of the horse's passing are very rare," said Dr. Brian Stewart , the head of veterinary and equine welfare at Racing Victoria, referring to Admire Ratki. He said a postmortem would be conducted. "Our sympathies are extended at this time to the owner Mr Kondo, trainer Mr Umeda and his staff who cared deeply for their horse and are naturally saddened by their tragic loss." First past the post in prestigious race 7 of the Melbourne Cup was Protectionist, a five year old trained by Andreas Wohler, and ridden by English jockey Ryan Moore. Admire Rakti "He has won very easily and that is a very good horse," Moore said. An ecstatic Wohler said: "It's unbelievable. We'll probably later think about it and it's a moment you won't forget in your life." The five year old -- one of the most inexperienced in the field -- won by four lengths, ahead of Britain's Red Cadeaux, which placed second for a third time out of four read more starts. New Zealand's Who Shot Thebarman came third.
