A Group 3 winner in Perth as a three-year-old for former trainer Simon Miller, O’Brien said the plan was to try and get the four-year-old’s rating up in order to target better races in the Spring.
“She’s a lovely style of mare and I’ve been lucky enough to get her over from Perth,” O’Brien said.
“She’s been in work for nearly three months to have her ready for her first-up run, she’s a big, gross mare so she’ll improve with the run and I suspect the way she raced today and looking at her previous starts, over 1400 or a mile (1600m) she’ll be at her best.
“We’ll look to get her rating up so that she might get a run in some better races in the Spring, there’s the Leilani mares series through the winter which is perfect for a mare in her ratings band.”

Another Flemington-based trainer came to the fore five minutes later in Adelaide when the Nigel Blackiston-trained Let’s Make Adeal ($3.30F) recorded her first victory since August 2013 in the Centaurea Stakes (2000m) at Morphettville.
