Auckland Red, a four-year-old gelding and one of the second crop of Auckland Reactor, extended his unbeaten winning sequence this season to four with a dashing end-to-win success at Kilmore on Sunday night (August 16).
The chestnut returned a career-best 1:54.9 rating over 1690 metres with the last 800 in 57.6
He is the fastest of the four progeny of his dam The Summer Wind NZ (by Live Or Die).
Thirty minutes later, the four-year-old Jackson Neptune gained a needle-eye before snatching a last-stride win at Launceston. The gelding is the third foal and only winner of his lightly raced dam, Narra Targan Rose (by Safely Kept).
