Jazzy Star, a six-year-old gelding by AUCKLAND REACTOR, and one of his first crop, came from last to post his seventh lifetime success at Addington on Thursday night (September 17).
Gaining a three-wide trail in the back straight, the gelding was hooked four deep on the home turn and mounted an electrifying finishing flourish to prevail in the last few strides.
The mile rate for the 1980 metres was a slick 1:57.6 with the last 800 in 56.4 and 400 in 27.5
Jazzy Star has banked $66,928 from seven wins and five placings in 22 starts.
He is the second foal and only foal of the Village Jasper mare Shikaka.
