Scenic’s Campaign Shot

The winter campaign of Doomben Cup winner Scenic Shot is over after the horse was discovered to be suffering from a mystery off-fore leg injury.

Scenic Shot will be out of action for the rest of the Brisbane Carnival

Len Morton, who is representing trainer son Dan in Brisbane, said that nine year old would be given a spell and bought back for the Melbourne spring carnival.

“We’ll be finishing up here and he’ll be going for a spell. He’s lame in the off-fore and it was significant enough to affect him at the end of the race,” said Morton.

Scenic Shot battled on gamely in the Eagle Farm Cup where he finished third behind Glass Harmonium and Shoot Out. Scenic Shot’s injury was picked up after the race, although connections of the horse are still not 100 per cent sure what the problem is.

“We looked at it with the vet and couldn’t isolate the problem, other than it’s the off fore.

“We’ve got a meeting with the farrier and the vet. Hopefully it’s not as serious as we first thought. I think he’ll be right to continue on after a spell. It’s certainly not career threatening.” Morton said.

Scenic Shot was down to run in the Brisbane Cup, a race he won in 2009 with a record weight of 60kgs. He also won the Group One Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington in that same year.

Following his third place in the Eagle Farm Cup, Scenic Shot is now the second most successful horse to come out of Western Australia in terms of prize money.

Northerly sits a long way out in front with over $9 million in prize money, with Scenic Shot now second with just over $3 million won.
