Alison Smith knew her hopes of having a successful day at Parkes Jockey Club on Sunday rested on race two, a $20,000 maiden handicap over 1000m.
Electrostep, Almost Alice and Avro all came into the dash looking to register their first winning result but weren't able to make inroads, finishing 7th, 8th and 9th respectively.
The $21 prospect Electrostep got out of the gate slowly and despite being able to roll forward in the lead-up to the final 400m, had too much ground to cover on the winner, Mas Dinero ($3.40).
After Joseph Ible's winner came Neil Osborne's Fancythatmo ($3) from Bjon Baker's Red Hot Moon. Almost Alice ($91) and Avro ($101) both showed effort but just didn't have enough pace down the stretch.
