  Sadly Anthony Van Dyck broke down in the Melbourne cup and had to be euthanized.

I first read this on another site and am in total shock. I was not even aware of the Melborne Cup-

 I follow European racing as some of us do here and this horse was always in the highest level races.

 RIP

Oh no! I wonder if their racetracks are to blame? Several injured racing down under recently? My condolences to his connections, I will miss watching him race!:(

 Rule changes coming after the death of Anthony Van Dyck

 Good to hear!!!!    Apparently the track surface is very different in Europe v Australia and they are thinking that could have something to do with the breakdowns that have occurred .

TVG has international racing from Midnight to 5:00 am eastern. I assume Sha Tin will be shown but not 100% sure.

The cup is race 8 of 9 and is slated to go at 3:30 am eastern
