Kyabram trained and owned trotters Claudy’s Princess and Imamenace put Kyabram in the spotlight on Friday night at harness racing headquarters Melton, when they took out the Group 1 $60,000 Empire Stallions Vicbred Super Series finals for three year olds.

The duo’s wins culminated a big four days for Kyabram trotters.

The brilliant Mick Blackmore trained filly Claudy’s Princess made it four group one wins — three this season — with a dominant win in the fillies final, while the colts and geldings final went to the Peter and Carmel Shellie owned and bred Imamenace having just his second race start.

Imamenace is trained by Shepparton horseman Peter Cormican.

Each pocketed $36,300 for their efforts.

Claudy’s Princess started a hot $1.90 favorite while Imamenace was a $35 outsider.

Claudy’s Princess stamped herself as possibly the best three-year-old filly in Australia with her dominant win.
