In a season where trainer Danny O'Brien added Melbourne and Adelaide Cups as well as Derby and an Oaks to his mantlepiece, it seemed apt that the master trainer end the season winning with another exciting stayer of the future in Fabalot.

The Northen Hemisphere-bred three-year-old,  a son of gun sire Camelot, put in a commanding performance at Geelong ver 2400m in just fourth race start winning his maiden by 4.25 lengths eased down by gun jockey Damien Oliver.

The champion hoop said the gelding had the chance to develop into a stayer of note in the future.

"It was a good win. Even though we got into an ackward spot, once the run came for him, he quickened really nicely and won well," Oliver said post race.

"I think he is a stayer for the future as he is a slower maturing type and I think he will make a nice horse next time in work."
