Shadow Vampire (Impending/Lionel Left Me), the 3-year-old bay gelding finally managed to show his true capabilities by taking out the first race at Kembla Grange, The Big Dance at Royal Randwick Maiden Plate over 1000m Tuesday, 1st November 2022 in consummate ease.
Combining with talented Apprentice Jockey Jackson Searle, he was held up after jumping well from barrier 6, securing a position on the fence. Travelling comfortably, he followed the rail until a gap presented itself. Once clear, he rebalanced and took the lead at the 100m mark, coming away to win by nearly a length.
Congratulations to David Lui and SE, plenty more in store for this talented horse, Shadow Vampire.
