AUCKLAND REACTOR bookended the meeting at Gloucester Park on Friday night (January 8) with Antero and Blue Blazer NZ.
Both six-year-old geldings enjoyed a perfect run in transit before outsprinting their rivals in the home straight. Antero rated 1:57.5 and Blue Blazer went in 1:59.6.
Antero, bred by the late Harry Capararo, notched up his ninth success and took his earnings to beyond $80,000. He is out a Real Desire mare, Adda My Way (2:00.6).
Blue Blazer collected his 11th win and boosted his bankroll to over $85,000. He is out of Jet Spirit, an unraced daughter of Jereme’s Jet.
Meanwhile, Would You Mind NZ, a four-year-old gelding by AUCKLAND REACTOR, stretched his unbeaten winning sequence to three when he captured the Provincial Pace Final at Melton earlier in the night.
The gelding rated 1:57.1 over 2240 metres with the last 800 in a blazing 56.1.
Would You Mind is from a mare by Presidential Ball.
