Our Reactor, a three-year-old gelding by AUCKLAND REACTOR, became his sire’s 96th individual winner in Australia this season when he donkey-licked his rivals at Newcastle on Friday night (October 23).
The lightly raced gelding pinged straight to the front from the outside gate and was never seriously tested, winning by an ever-increasing 14 metres.
The mile rate for the 2030 metres was 1:59.8 with the last 800 in a slick 57.5.
Our Reactor is the third foal and second winner out of My Irish Rose (1:59.4), a six-win Peace Of Art mare.
One night earlier the AUCKLAND REACTOR six-year-old Square Dealer notched his third win at Addington.
After racing three-deep early, the gelding slotted into the one-one trail, then sprinted brilliantly up the home straight to score by 2-1/4 lengths.
Square Dealer is from the winning Washington VC mare Shop Til You Drop.
