Champion Perth pacer Im Themightyquinn is the 2012/13 Grand Circuit champion.

And the $4 million earner scored comfortably.

The Gary Hall trained star won three of the eight legs available while being placed in another which gave him a grand total of 340 points for the season, 96 points clear of his nearest rival Mah Sish.

Im Themightyquinn claimed his home town feature on January 11, the $400,000 WA Cup at Gloucester Park while winning the $750,000 Inter Dominion Pacing Grand Final at TABCORP Park, Menangle on March 3 before scoring in the $NZ250,000 Auckland Cup at Alexandra Park five days later.

The New Zealand bred gelding was third in the $400,000 Victoria Cup at TABCORP Park, Melton behind Caribbean Blaster and Mah Sish on December 15.

Im Themightyquinn amassed more than $850,000 in prizemoney throughout the season.

It is the second time that Im Themightyquinn has been crowned Grand Circuit champion after being crowned back in the 2010/11 season.

Other Grand Circuit leg winners were Washakie (Queensland Pacing Championship), Terror To Love (New Zealand Cup), Caribbean Blaster (Victoria Cup), Mah Sish (Hunter Cup) and Baby Bling (Miracle Mile).
