ES (Cohen's d) is the acceptable "risk" between the null & alternative hypotheses so, as I am aware, by definition it is always between to outcomes. If you have 3 then there would be an ES between the null and each of the 2 other alternatives.

However, the estimated effect size for an ANOVA is the Eta Squared.
