Cloudy Reactor, a three-year-old filly by AUCKLAND REACTOR, ended a frustrating run of minor placings with an authoritative win at Gloucester Park on Tuesday night (May 25).
Starting from the pole, the filly pinged straight to the top and was never seriously challenged.
Zipping home in 57.9 seconds, Cloudy Reactor won under a hold by 7.3 metres.
The mile rate for the 2130 metres was 2:00.8.
Bred, raced and trained by Mike Howie, Cloudy Reactor is from Our Cloudy Dawn NZ (1:56.7), an eight-win Washington VC mare who left earlier winners in Bee Jays Boy (1:58) and Flying Mav (1:59.7).
