Master O'Reilly breaks through

Exciting staying prospect, Master O'Reilly, broke through for his first win for the Danny O'Brien Stable at Randwick on Doncaster Handicap Day.

The son of O'Reilly joined the O'Brien Stable after a very successful last preparation under the guidance of Judy Mawer. Owner, Bill Sutcliffe, made the switch with the promising galloper and was rewarded with the horses first metropolitan success.

His form had been very good following two placings behind the consistant Cholula at his last two outings and he handled the soft track well to score his one length victory. The win continued Damien Oliver's excellent Sydney Autumn Carnival.

"We made the decision to bring him to Sydney for this richer event rather than staying in Melbourne and we were rewarded well" said O'Brien.

Danny O'Brien has had great success with the progeny of O'Reilly with Splashing Out running a strong third in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.
