After running an eye-catching second at Newcastle last start, SONG AND A PRAYER went one better to make a return to the winners stall at Hawkesbury over 1500m. 

With Rachel King back on board, the daughter of Stratum took a more prominent position to settle on the leaders heels where she travelled comfortably through out.  As they straightened for home, the leader gave a kick and King had to get serious with Song And a Prayer who knuckled down strongly to score a tough victory. 

Congratulations to her owners Canning Downs Stud, who enjoyed a successful day with REPUBLIC also running a nice second when resuming in the race prior.
