Sea Moon out of Melbourne Cup
November 3, 2014 3:09 am
The 2014 Melbourne Cup has had its first scratching, with Sea Moon out of the race because of an elevated temperature.
The owners of the horse notified Racing Victoria Stewards this morning that Sea Moon had developed a high temperature overnight and the English import was officially scratched.
Sea Moon had been rated as one of the outsiders of the field at $151.
The camp also lost 2012 Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon to this year’s Cup because of a cracked hoof but will still be represented by last year’s Caulfield Cup winner and last start Cox Plate runner up Fawkner.
The Melbourne Cup race will be held tomorrow at 5pm and you can watch it live on FBC TV.
