Kyabram Harness Racing Club is gearing up for its biggest day of the year on Sunday when it hosts The Blue Brick Kyabram Cup meeting in the twilight zone at the Frank Ryan Raceway, Echuca.
An outstanding 100 nominations have ensured good fields for the meeting, which features The Blue Brick Kyabram Cup.
Kyabram Harness Racing Club was a trailblazer in letting the public in free to meetings, a gesture that draws much larger crowds than to normal meetings, giving greater exposure to the sport.
The Blue Brick Hotel’s co-licensees, Tony Hansen and Max McKenzie, said their hotel was only too happy to continue the tradition of sponsoring the Kyabram Cup the hotel has supported since the 1980s.
Tony and Max were on hand at the Kyabram trots training centre this week to wish local trainer Mick Blackmore and pacer Beau Romulus the best for the meeting.
Blackmore will be looking to continue his present hot run of successes with Beau Romulus, with the trainer’s latest win coming with the highly talented three-year-old trotting filly Majestic Grace, who turned in a track record sub two-minute performance to blitz her rivals at Kilmore last Saturday night.
Owned and bred by Stanhope’s Mac and Marilyn Poole, Majestic Grace has won three of her eight starts in her first season of racing.
With last season’s Australian Trotting Filly of the Year, Claudys Princess, also in his stable, Blackmore has arguably the two best three-year-old fillies in the country in his care.
Blackmore also trains another talented trotter in Senitas Success, who has won five of his nine starts this season.
Majestic Grace’s next assignment is on Friday when she tackles the $10
