A Shin Impala scored his second career win, both in 2016, under Wayne Lordan over a mile at Dundalk on Friday, when landing the opening Crowne Plaza Race & Stay Rated Race at the Co. Louth venue.

The son of Evasive, scored by a length and a half to win over Dance Alone.

“He’s been a bit disappointing since winning here in the spring.

“We tried the cheekpieces on him tonight and they worked. He’ll most likely go to the horses-in-training sale at Doncaster.” Fozzy Stack
