MISDEMEANOR left all of her rivals in her wake at Parkes on Saturday when she won by more than 20 metres in the Telescope Tyres Ladyship Pace (1,660 metres).
Expectations were high for Misdemeanor, as evidenced by her $1.22 starting price, but Bathurst trainer Peter Trevor-Jones' filly showed why she earned such a short price with her 28.2 final quarter - the fastest of the meeting.
Holy Camp Paxton ($10, Robbie Anderson) and Ideal Flash ($16, Jason Turnbull) were left to fight it out for the runner-up position as Misdemeanor bolted away.
Mat Rue, making his first start on the filly, guided her to her third win of the season and her first career victory away from her home track in Bathurst.
A much closer finish unfolded between three Bathurst runners in the Col Fletcher Ford Pace (2,040m) later in the meeting.
Greg Rue's Whiskiesonthebeach ($3.10, favourite) held off Snoop Stride ($4.40) and Standandeliver ($3.40) with less than a head separating all three.
