Satono Shalom (Lord Kanaloa) won on debut over 2000 metres at Hanshin on Saturday, becoming the second winner for his dam Shamrocker (O'Reilly). 

Sent off favourite, the Yasutoshi Ikee-trained Satono Shalom was ridden by Yuga Kawada. He looked to be in trouble with 200 metres left to run, but found plenty under pressure to defeat Sylvis (Rulership) by half a length. 

Trained by Danny O'Brien, Shamrocker won the Australian Derby (Gr 1, 2400m) in April 2011 having captured the Australian Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) the month prior. 

The now 12-year-old Shamrocker has a yearling filly by Deep Impact (Sunday Silence) named Julia Barows, a filly foal by Deep Impact and was most recently covered by the Arrowfield shuttler Real Steel (Deep Impact). Satono Shalom was bought for Y180,000,000 (approximately $2,350,000) at the JRHA 2017 Select Sale by Hajime Satomi from the draft of Northern Farm.
