AUCKLAND REACTOR sired a pair of fast New Zealand-bred winners in North America over the weekend in Thunderfromthethrone and The Great Buzz.
Thunderfromthethrone, a seven-year-old gelding, won in a career-best 1:50.8 at The Meadowlands. The gelding is undefeated in two starts this year.
He is out of the Christian Cullen mare Sevenspanishangels (2:02.3), the dam of two winners from two foals to race.
The Great Buzz, a six-year-old gelding, captured a leg of the Claim To Fame Series in 1:53.4 at Miami Valley Raceway, Ohio and has now earned more than $US100,000. He will line up in the $25,000 Final on Friday (January 22).
The gelding is from Risonanza, an unraced Bettor’s Delight mare.
