The following afternoon, at the same track, he won the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes on the O'Brien-trained New York Girl and a third Group 3 race in the season came on the Joseph O'Brien-trained Degraves at Leopardstown in October. 

Speak In Colours gave Shane his first Group 2 winner when landing the Weatherbys Ireland Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh in June, 2020.
