Future looks bright for Jim Bolger's Goldrush

Fri 27 Oct 2017

Goldrush maintained her unbeaten record with a determined display in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Cooley Fillies Stakes at Dundalk.

After making a successful start to her career at Navan, the impeccably-bred daughter of Frankel and Alexander Goldrun struck at Listed level last time out, for which she had a 3lb penalty.

She was also dropping in distance but Kevin Manning got her across from an awkward draw to sit third, just behind the leaders, and she made her move at the top of the straight.

She did not put the race to bed immediately, with a host of challengers on her heels, but she was not for passing and kept up the gallop to dispose of Aneen by half a length as the 9-4 favourite.

Belle Boyd was a neck back in third.

Manning said: "She did the same here a fortnight ago. I didn't think dropping back to a mile would inconvenience her as she won over a mile at Navan and showed plenty of pace. She's just a filly on the up and I'm very, very pleased with her. She's a filly for the future.

"Her mother was the same (tough). She's going the right way and I think there is plenty more improvement in her. I don't think we have seen the last of her yet.

"She stays well and she has pace, but all the good ones have that. Anything we have asked her to do she has done it. I can see her going plenty further than this.

"I don't think there is a great deal left for her this year but we'll see plenty of her next year."
