Miss Promiscuity banished the memory of a last-start defeat with a dominant victory in Saturday’s Group III Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield.
Allowed to settle just behind the moderate early speed set by Angels Beach and Wild Rain, Dwayne Dunn presented Miss Promiscuity ($12) to challenge around the home turn and she lengthened well to go clear and defeat Wild Rain ($11) and Angels Beach ($6.50), who dead-heated for second, by 2-3/4 lengths.
The win gave Dunn a double on the day and the lead in the Melbourne jockeys premiership.
“I found a good spot and she was happy in the ground,” Dunn said of the David Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained daughter of Magnus.
“When I began so well and I knew the favourite (Lord Of The Sky) missed the start I was happy to be ahead of him,
“She just travelled so well and we were in the right part of the track. When I went for her in the straight she gave me a super kick,
“As soon as I put the foot on the accelerator she put the others away pretty quick,
“It’s a good result for the owners to get some black type with her and she’s shown today she’s a top quality filly.”
Trainer Mark Kavanagh was delighted with the effort of joint runner-up Wild Rain.
“That was great. We took a risk running in this as opposed to the fillies’ race and it is terrific for the owners to get the Group placing,” he said.
“She will head to the Dermody Stakes in Adelaide in two weeks’ time.”
Trainer Robbie Laing was not making excuses for the beaten favourite.
“He looked to be awkward away and that’s not usually him. I don’t know what else to say,” he said.
