Goldrush made it three wins from as many starts in the Listed Irish Stallion Farms EBF Cooley Fillies Stakes at Dundalk.

Despite not seeing a racecourse until September, the three-year-old daughter of Frankel and Alexander Goldrun is making up for lost time and living up to her illustrious pedigree.

She settled just off the speed before setting sail for home over two furlongs out and with her ability to stay further than this mile proven, she ran right the way to the line to fend off Aneen by half a length.

Art Of Unity made a quick return to action for the Irishinjuredjockeys.com Nursery Handicap and it paid dividends.

Noel Meade's 11-4 chance, who was third at Fairyhouse on Tuesday, wore down the front-running Stewardess before scoring by a length and a quarter from Downtown Diva in the hands of title-chasing Colin Keane.

Keane doubled up on 5-2 favourite Carried in the Irishinjuredjockeys.com Handicap (Div 2).

Night Of Power made a successful all-weather debut in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Maiden.

The 11-10 favourite shaped with plenty of promise in a couple of Naas maidens and put that experience to good use by making all, seeing off Kalaxana by a length.

Indian Tomahawk (4-1) regained the winning thread in the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey & Trainer Championship Handicap.

Proven over further than this mile trip, Richard O'Brien's five-year-old finished his race off really well to deny Koybig by a head.

Midnitemudcrabs attracted plenty of support throughout the day and dug deep to justify it, beating Maysonette by three-quarters of a length as the 5-4 favourite in the www.dundalkstadium.com Fillies Claiming Race.

Any number flashed past the furlong marker with a chance in the Crowne Plaza Hotel Race & Stay Handicap but the one to finish off best was Chicago School (12-1), while Gilded Reflection (33-1) struck on her first start since joining Niall Madden in the Irishinjuredjockeys.com Handicap (Div 1).
