Widely travelled AUCKLAND REACTOR gelding Aha Reaction NZ posted his ninth win and took his earnings over the $60,000 mark at Launceston on Friday night (May 7).
Starting from the back row, the six-year-old settled down in second last position before joining the three-wide train at the bell.
Switched five deep on the home turn, Aha Reaction let down with a paralysing finishing burst to score by three metres.
The mile rate for the 1680 metres was a smart 1:57.9 – the last 800 in 58.4 seconds.
Bred by Tony and Anne Parker, Aha Reaction is from the Bettor’s Delight mare Dreamy Delight, the dam of three winners from four foals of racing age.
AUCKLAND REACTOR has sired 59 individual winners in Australia this year and they have amassed $740,000 in stake earnings.
