VIDEO: Astadash continues Jessica Harrington success story
on 19 September 2021
The oft-placed filly deservedly won a Group 3 prize at Gowran Park on Saturday

Astadash continued Jessica Harrington’s sensational run of form with victory in the feature event at Gowran Park on Saturday.

The Moone-based trainer enjoyed four winners across Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown and the Curragh last week, highlighted by the Group 1 triumphs of No Speak Alexander in the Matron and Discoveries in the Moyglare Stud Stakes.

In the days that have followed, Harrington has enjoyed a double at Punchestown and trebles at both Naas and Dundalk – taking her overall tally to 16 winners in the last 11 days.

Having filled the runner-up spot in the Listed Hurry Harriet Stakes over the same course and distance last month, Astadash was an 11/2 chance to go one better and claim Group 3 honours in the Denny Cordell Lavarack & Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes.

Always travelling well on the front end under Wayne Lordan, the four-year-old kicked clear in the home straight and was three lengths clear of 7/2 favourite Emaniya at the line.

Harrington said: ““She loves Gowran and ran a blinder here last time. She was very good today and I’m delighted that she’s now got big blacktype.

“She’s big and took a long time to come to herself. The dam is not around any more, so the owners will want to have her for the paddocks.”
