Master O'Reilly is a New Zealand bred race horse trained by Danny O'Brien. He was the 2007 winner of the Caulfield Cup when ridden by Vlad Duric.

In October 2007, Master O'Reilly was penalized 1.5kg by Racing Victoria Limited prior to the Melbourne Cup, one of the highest penalties given in recent years. Although the penalty placed him 26th among a field of 24 horses, he was nevertheless guaranteed a start and went on to win the Caulfield Cup later that week. He was well supported in the Melbourne Cup, starting favourite, but he finished a disappointing eighth behind Efficient. Despite not winning since that Caulfield Cup, he has continued to run in good form, including fourth placings in both the 2008 and 2009 Melbourne Cups.
