Scenic Assault Wins Easter Stakes
Ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a black-type quinella when 5YO gelding Scenic Assault (Scenic-Star Of The Mist, by Star Pak) notched a 1.25-lengths win in the $50,000 Listed Easter Stakes (1500m) at Ascot in Perth. Scenic Assault (ridden by Alana Sansom for trainer Lindsey Smith) defeated favoured 4YO gelding Attractions (Scenic-Eucla, by Euclase) & fellow 5YO gelding Diffraction (Spectrum-Pushy Dancer, by Seattle Dancer). Scenic Assault (a $44,000 yearling at the 2003 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale) now has 10 wins & 7 placings in 30 starts for $191,391 earnings.
