Another 2yo winner for O'Brien

Danny O'Brien sees his winning run with a small group of two-year-olds as an encouraging sign for the future.

O'Brien is best known for his success with older horses but with Star Witness one of the favourites for the Blue Diamond Stakes he produced another potential juvenile star in Wednesday's Glenfern Plate (1200m) at Sandown.

O'Reilly filly Shamrocker trained on from her debut fourth at Mornington to score in a three-way photo-finish from Zubbaya and Bedhrah.

O'Brien has had plenty of success with O'Reilly's progeny, most notably with 2007 Caulfield Cup winner Master O'Reilly.

"It was a good solid finish and hopefully this filly can progress," O'Brien said.

"She did everything right today and showed good fight."

He said the Group 3 Breeders Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on March 6 could be a suitable race for her next start.
