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.
