Auckland Reactor

Red Reactor last to first

Brilliant AUCKLAND REACTOR gelding Red Reactor NZ, who posted his 10th lifetime success at Menangle on Tuesday (December 22), after appearing hopelessly out of it, is a five-year-old expected to graduate far beyond his present rating.

Starting from the outside gate, the chestnut settled down at the tail of the nine-horse field.

Still last rounding the home bend and spotting the leaders a conservative 25 metres, Red Reactor unleashed a spectacular finishing flourish to win by a length.

The time for the flying mile was 1:52.6 – the equal second fastest time of the day.

He clocked his last two sectionals in 28.6 and a stunning 26.7.

Red Reactor has now earned almost $120,000 in stakes.

Bred by Ken and Ann-Marie Spicer, the gelding is from Edernay (2:00), a Live Or Die mare.
