Smart AUCKLAND REACTOR four-year-old mare Miss Auckland proved a class above her rivals at Winton, NZ on Sunday (February 7).
Starting from the pole, the mare pinged straight to the top and led up the field before handing up with a round to go.
Angled down onto the passing lane, Miss Auckland rallied strongly to win by 1-3/4 lengths under a hold.
The mile rate for the 2400 metres was 1:59.5 with the last 800 in 57.1 and 400 in 27.8
It was her second success.
Bred by Owen Lawrence and Ms C. L. Graham, Miss Auckland is the first foal of the four-win Washington VC mare Arancia (1:59.4).
