One time Caulfield Cup favourite Admire Deus has unfortunately lost his battle to a serious injury to lower part of his suspensory suffered in a routine gallop.
Admire Deus was the heavily backed favourite ahead of the Caulfield Cup before the horse broke down in a gallop at Warrnambool.
Connections performed serveral surgeries to save the imported Japanese galloper although he passed away over the weekend.
“Unfortunately he’s lost his battle,” Weir said.
