As others, including the gambled-on favourite, Salam Alaykum (10s this morning into 4s) and the remarkably consistent Shake The Bucket, battled it out down the inside, Gretzky, a winner here a fortnight back, 'took off' down the outer inside the last (drifted to his left) to get up and win by a length and a quarter.
Miss Forde got no luck in running and she eventually had to settle for seventh.
The victorious 22-year-old commented: "That's my first treble and that horse did it well. Hopefully I can keep the good run going now."
Conor Hoban completed a 440/1 Dundalk double when just getting La Oliva home by a short head from First Friday (6s this morning into 100/30 fav) in the Crowne Plaza Race & Stay Handicap at Dundalk.
