Vernon Beachy moved Alan first-up at the half, and when they trotted by three-quarters, Alan cleared to the lead and then went on to 3-1/2-length win over Fultons Fury in the $9,200 Great Lakes Amateur Drivers Association (GLADA) Trot Saturday night (Nov. 20) at Northfield Park.

When the starter turned the field loose, Bill Rhoades hustled Impressive Chief to the lead from the four-hole and they were strong on the front when they passed the first quarter in :28.2. They were still comfortable on the lead when they passed the half in :58.2, but as the field neared the halfway point, Beachy angled Alan off the pylons and they began moving up. At three-quarters in 1:27.4, Alan had a comfortable three-length lead over Fulton Fury, who was traveling along the pylons in second position.

The lead was then opened to four lengths as Alan led his competition to the top of the lane. And when he headed for paydirt, it was "catch me if you can" and no one could as Beachy and Alan cruised home a 3-1/2-length winner over Fultons Fury. Yankees Image garnered the show dough for Marion Chupp.

The winner, a five-year-old altered son of Dontyouforgetit, is owned by Robert Sidley and trained by Crist Hershberger. Sent off the favourite in the race, he paid $4.40 for the win.
