What's soft, white, and afraid of peppermints? The famous nose of Australian Horse of the Year Scenic Blast! Assistant trainer Frank Leal tried to get him to take the treat, but he recoiled each time it touched his nose. He's also afraid of carrots!
Scenic Blast transferred to John Shirreffs' stable so he could run on the anti-bleeder medication Lasix, which is banned in Australia.
