Alben Star loves winning on Championship Finals Day at Lingfield. He won the sprint in 2014 on the first ever Good Friday meeting, he was second last year and he won again yesterday. There was a fast pace and Alben was held up by jockey David Nolan in the middle of the field. He challenged inside the final furlong and produced a devastating turn of foot to power clear and win by two-and-a-quarter lengths.
It was another great day for owners Mick Scaife and Kenny Shannon, they picked up £93,375 in prize money and Alben Star’s career earnings now total upwards of £310,000.
