Alexander Goldrun Frankel Filly Scores On Debut
Over the weekend at Navan in Ireland, China Horse Club's significant investment in 3YO debutante filly Goldrush (Frankel-Alexander Goldrun, by Gold Away) looked highly promising when she kicked clear of her rivals at the 400m pole over 8 furlongs to win by 3-lengths. Considering her pedigree, the $7.00 on offer about the Jim Bolger-trained filly appears, in hindsight, to have been daylight robbery. By the world's highest rated racehorse and exciting sire Frankel, Goldrush is out of Alexander Goldrun who either won or placed in 15 Gr1 events in England, Ireland, France, Hong Kong and Singapore. Goldrush, who has taken a little time to come to hand, was a €1.7 million Goffs Orby Yearling. According to irishracing.com, Bolger commented, "She doesn't want soft ground, but she handled that well today so she might handle a little ease in it. Hopefully she will go on now and be a Stakes filly."
