Aust Champ Scenic Blast Arrives In Hong Kong
In Hong Kong, last season's Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & current Global Sprint Challenge leader Scenic Blast (Scenic-Daughter's Charm, by Delgado) has arrived from Japan in preparation for December 13's Gr1 HK International Sprint (1200m) at Sha Tin. Scenic Blast will collect a US$1 million bonus if he wins the HK Sprint, having already won legs in 2 other countries (Gr1 Lightning Stakes at Flemington in Melbourne & Gr1 King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot in the UK). The Gr2 International Sprint Trial (1200m) at Sha Tin on November 22 "is a possible prep race for Scenic Blast before his December assignment," reported the HK jockey Club.
