Melbourne Cup horse taken to vet hospital after race incident




Melbourne Cup runner Tralee Rose has reportedly been taken to the vet after being galloped on during the race.

According to The Age the horse has a laceration to one of its hind legs and was taken to the vet for an examination.

Thankfully, there are no reports of a leg break and at this stage the vet visit looks to be a precaution to guard against infection.

Tralee Rose ended up finishing 9th in the race – earning owners, jockey and connections $160,000 in total.

It was an incredible effort considering the horse was injured for almost the entire race – a fact the owners confirmed to The Geelong Advertiser.

The race was won by Verry Elleegant in a surprise over favourite Incentivise.
