Champion harness racing horse and now sire Auckland Reactor got a double when 4yo pacers Smoke N Reactor and then Aha Reaction won their respective races in the South and North Islands tonight.

At Addington in Race 3, Smoke N Reactor (Auckland Reactor - Smoke N Mirrors - Pacific Rocket) boomed home out wide from near last for driver Laura McKay to obliterate her opposition winning easily by more than 3 lengths.

The Mark Jones trained Smoke N Reactor rated 1-58.9 for the 1980m mobile event and ran home her last 800m in 59.2 seconds.

In a contrasting win at Auckland, Aha Reaction (Auckland Reactor - Dreamy Delight - Bettors Delight) had to endure a survival of the fittest to win his race at Alexandra Park.

After holding the lead early from barrier one for driver John Dunn, Aha Reaction handed to the favourite Ideal Star with 1200m to go.

The pace was cetainly on all the way and in the straight the Auckland Reactor gelding fought best in a thrilling three way battle to the line winning narrowly by a head.

The time was a sizzling 2-39.3 for the mobile 2200m which equated to a 1-56.5 mile rate. The last 800m was cut out in 56.0 with a closing quarter in 27.7 seconds.

Auckland Reactor has 34 winners and 119 qualifiers in New Zealand to date and in Australia he has produced 99 starters for 41 winners to date. He has total stake earnings for his progeny of just under $2 million and rising fast.

Chase Auckland has made the $1 million Miracle Mile at Menangle on Saturday night and his best mare to date Soho Burning Love has a good chance in the $200,000 Ladyship Stakes at the same track.

Aha Reaction winning in a 1-56.5 mile rate.
