Improving Scenic Blast Draws Wide – 2012 Doomben 10,000

Former Australian horse of the year Scenic Blast will have to overcome a wide barrier draw when continuing his promising Brisbane winter campaign in Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Doomben 10,000.

Scenic Blast has a tough ask in the Doomben 10,000 after drawing barrier 16

The Dan Morton-trained veteran has shown signs of the horse that saw him named the best in the country in 2009 but this morning received the widest draw in the field (16) for this weekend’s feature race.

A son of Scenic, the seven-year-old ran second to Buffering when first-up at Eagle Farm earlier this month and then produced an excellent run to finish runner-up in the BTC Cup.

Experienced jockey Shane Scriven has enjoyed riding the three-time Group 1 winner and will again be on board this weekend.

“It’s pretty special to be on his back…he’s flying,” Scriven said.

Scriven was pleased with the way the gelding worked during a hit-out yesterday morning and is expecting him to again improve in the $650,000 event.

“It’s scary to think how much he has improved with a couple of runs under his belt,” Scriven said.

“On the course proper yesterday it was winning work.”

The experienced horse has not tasted victory since his outstanding 2009 campaign that saw him win the Group 1 Lightning Stakes and Newmarket Handicap at Flemington before heading to Royal Ascot to take out the King’s Stand Stakes.

Following his initial overseas victory, Scenic Blast spent 18 months racing internationally in the UK, Asia and the US before returning to race in Australia late last year.

The barrier draw is not the only obstacle he will have to overcome with a classy 16-horse field this morning named to contest the event.

Headlining the Group is BTC Cup winner Sea Siren who has drawn barrier seven, Queensland star Buffering (10) and exciting gelding Pampelonne (3).
