Admire Ratki won the Caulfield Cup in October and started as the favorite in the 154th edition of the Melbourne Cup. Starting as a front runner in the early stage of the race, he suddenly faded midway in to the race and finished last in the 22-horse field. The seven-year-old Japanese stayer collapsed and died due to exhaustion suffered during the race. His death was cited as a rare event. Trained by Tomoyuki Umeda and owned by Riichi Kondo, he carried maximum weight of 58.5 kilograms in the fourth-fastest Cup ever run.
