When Red Reactor won at Alexandra Park last Friday night it capped off a memorable harness racing week for his sire Auckland Reactor

Auckland Reactor has had a productive time with his progeny both here and in Australia over the last fortnight winning several races in both countries.

On Sunday the 26th May a speedy Auckland Reactor filly by the name of Sky Vale turned heads at the Rangiora meeting when winning her harness racing debut by an ever increasing 8 lengths for trainer Glenn Gillard and driver Blair Orange.

The winning time of 3-18.5 for the 2600m stand suggests there are plenty more wins in store for Sky Vale when you consider she was still locked up on the fence back in the field with 400m left to go.

Also winning at Rangiora was the Auckland Reactor gelding Baltimore Jack (Auckland Reactor - D'Amore's First) who picked up his third win after a run of placings in some tough Addington fields in the previous few weeks. 

Baltimore Jack was driven by Blair Orange who never had to panic when Baltimore Jack easily spaced his rivals by more than 3 lengths after receiving a good run on the outer during the race. Nigel McGrath is the trainer of Baltimore Jack.

Red Reactor (Auckland Reactor - Edernay) was impressive when winning his fifth race in quick time at Alexandra Park last Friday night.

The 4yo gelding ran 2-41.6 (1-58.1 MR) for the mobile 2200m for driver Maurice McKendry. It was a cagey drive by McKendry who bided his time near the rear of the field for the majority of the race. Near the 600m McKendry made his move and Red Reactor rushed into the race and slowly wore down his rivals to win by a neck.

Earlier this week Trainer Mark Jones produced an exciting Auckland Reactor 2yo trials winner at Rangiora.

Itz Alldown To Luck (Auckland Reactor - Itz Fatima Kiwi) demolished a five horse field by more than 8 lengths  in the standing start 2600m trial.

In the trial Itz Alldown To Luck was slowly away settling a long last, but Jones set the 2yo gelding alight with 800m to go and he rounded up the field, before shooting clear at the 600m and winning without being pushed.
