AUCKLAND REACTOR enjoyed a great 48 hours with his progeny, siring six winners including doubles at Globe Derby Park and Launceston.
The three-year-old Juddy Douglas and Plutonium NZX were successful at Globe Derby on Saturday night (September 19).
The following day Mighty Reactor (Oamaru) and Brookies Jaffa (Cambridge Raceway) both notched their second victories in New Zealand.
Mighty Reactor, who raced in second last position on the fence most of the way, gained a needle-eye opening in the latter stages and sprinted sharply to gain the verdict in the last few strides.
He covered the 2000 metres in a 2:00 rate with the last 800 in 57.8 and 400 in 29
Similarly, Brookies Jaffa was trapped in a zip fastener pocket for most of the 2200 metres before taking full advantage of the passing lane to win in a photo.
The mile rate was 1:59.2 – the final 800 in 58 and 400 in 28.6.
AUCKLAND REACTOR was also represented by a double at the Launceston twilight meeting with the two-year-old filly Bridwood Bella and the three-year-old filly Nine Diamonds.
Bridwood Bella, who sat parked most of the way, spread-eagled her rivals in the final stages to win by 18 metres.
The mile rate for the 1680 metres was 1:57.7 highlighted by a closing half in 57.3.
Bridwood Bella is undefeated in two starts so far.
Nine Diamonds, a former Victorian filly, came from midfield to post her fourth success for the season.
