Talented AUCKLAND REACTOR gelding The Banker posted his fourth success this season at Cambridge Raceway, New Zealand on Thursday (February 18).
After settling down in fourth position on the marker pegs, the five-year-old moved into the running line at the 1600 metre mark.
Tipped three-wide on straightening, The Banker railed strongly deep in the home stretch to prevail in the last few bounds.
The mile rate for the 2700 metres was 1:59.9 – the last 800 in 59.3.
The Banker has now earned $30,150 in stakes.
He is out of the unraced Mikana (by Christian Cullen) and is her only winner from four foals.
