Aikido Lands Rated Race On Return

Two-year-old maiden winner Aikido (3g Dandy Man – Quintessenz, by Soldier Hollow) made a winning return to action in a six furlong Rated Race at Dundalk.

Disputing the lead under Colin Keane, Ger Lyons’s charge was pushed along approaching the final furlong and kept on well to beat the favourite by half a length on the line.

Owned by Sean Jones, David Spratt and Mrs Lynne Lyons, Aikido was sold by Castletown Stud at the Tattersalls December Foal Sale.
