Spirit Song won the race by one and a half lengths ahead of Lights Of Heaven, who put in a brave performance to finish second, and Goldslick, who placed in third.

The Invincible Spirit mare has now won eight of her 28 race starts and has earned more than $700,000 in prize money during her career.

Trainer Aaron Purcell was over the moon to have won the 2013 Sunline Stakes after targeting this race from the beginning.

“The horse has been really good to train,” Purcell said.

“(I’m) really happy to have her in the stable.

“This race were her goal for this campaign.

“She showed them how good she is this year.

“She really puts herself in the race and if things go her way she’s pretty hard to hold out.”

Jockey Craig Williams was aboard Spirit Song for tonight’s impressive Sunline Stakes win and the rider admitted her wasn’t surprised by her win after finishing a close second in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy last start.

“Aaron Purcell’s done a great job,” Williams said.

“Last start really put the writing on the wall.

“I’m very fortunate to have the ride tonight.

“We just had the feeling if we made it more of a grind we might get some of the other horses unstuck.

“She’s done a great job and she’s a really honest mare.

“We know she’s high quality.”
