Smart AUCKLAND REACTOR gelding Gold Reactor prevailed in the last stride at Newcastle on Friday night (March 5).
Buried three deep on the marker pegs most of the way, the six-year-old gained racing room soon after straightening and sprouted wings in the closing stages.
The time for the flying mile was 1:55.3.
It was his ninth success and increased his stake tally to almost $115,000.
Bred and raced by M. T. Cole and B. Watson, Gold Reactor is out of the unraced Channelling Gold (by Ball And Chain).
