Smart AUCKLAND REACTOR gelding Red Reactor posted his ninth lifetime success when he scored a thrilling last-stride win at the feature meeting at Menangle on Saturday night (October 24).
Buried three deep on the marker pegs most of the way, the chestnut finally gained racing room half-way down the straight and finished with a wet sail to win in a photo.
The time for the 1609 metres was 1:53.1. He clocked 56.1 for the last 800.
It was his second win at the Sydney headquarters’ track.
The winner of $112,433, Red Reactor is out of Edernay (2:00), a Live Or Die mare.
