Australian Group 1 winning sprinter Sea Siren recorded a comfortable win in the Listed Belgrave Stakes (1207m) at Fairyhouse this morning in her first race for new trainer Aidan O’Brien.

The rising five-year-old was expected to record an easy victory but, carrying a weight penalty because of her past success at Group 1 level, was challenged in the straight by Russian Soul before running away in the final 100 metres to record a one and a half-length victory.

Jockey Joseph O’Brien, son of trainer Aidan, said he was happy with the performance and is excited about the filly’s chances in the Group 1 sprints later in the season.

“She has loads of pace and a great attitude, she was just a bit idle when she got there and I had to give her one smack to get her to go about her business,” O’Brien told the media after the race.

“We’ve only had her since Ascot and she is very exciting for the big five- and six-furlong sprints this season.”

Sea Siren was purchased by Coolmore in May this year and was transferred from the stable of John O’Shea to O’Brien after her eighth place finish behind Lethal Force in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1207m) last month.

The daughter of Fastnet Rock was most impressive as a three-year-old; recording Group 1 wins in the BTC Cup (1200m) and Doomben 10,000 (1350m) during the 2012 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival before scoring a narrow victory over Mental in the 2012 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate eve.

Sea Siren is expected to contest the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes (1006m) and Sprint Cup (1207m) later in the year before being retired to act as a broodmare at Coolmore, where a date with the recently retired Pierro is on the cards.
