Red Cadeaux (6 March 2006 – 21 November 2015) was a British-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who was a triple runner up in the Melbourne Cup in 2011, 2013 and 2014. He was euthanized on 21 November 2015, following complications after surgery for a sesamoid bone fracture in his left front fetlock. The injury was sustained during the 2015 Melbourne Cup, his fifth appearance in the event.[1][2] He garnered $8 million in prize money during his career. He was due to spend his retirement at the Living Legends quarter in Melbourne, but as per his owner's request Red Cadeux was buried at Flemington.
