Silver in Mane from Rubbing on Pipe

My trainer is working with a beautiful palomino colt, and he's got a big silver/gray spot in his white mane from sticking his head through the pipes of his stall. I know I saw a blurb somewhere in one of my old horse magazines on how to get this out, but I have literally years of magazines in storage to go through. I've also looked for grooming tips online, but all the whitening shampoos I've seen suggested use optical whiteners or bluing to counteract yellow and bring out the silver highlights, kinda the opposite of what we need, lol. Does anyone have any suggestions?

What have you already tried? I know the gray paint from my panels comes off a horse with just regular shampoo and a bit of scrubbing with a soft-ish brush.

He only gets hosed down after his training right now (intro to full baths is down the line in his training), but unfortunately the stall panels are treated but not painted. With any luck it'll come out with some shampoo and a good scrub, but I promised I'd look around for any tricks just in case it doesn't. =)
