Harness racing breeders who turned up for the Stallion Station open day were met with beautiful weather and some of the most outstanding Stallions in the southern hemisphere. The day commenced with a tour of the farm and introduction to the 6 resident Stallions, Art official, Attorney General, Mach Three, Majestic Son, Royal Mattjesty and finally the one they had come to see, NZ's own superstar Auckland Reactor.

There is no question he is the one they have come to see, Stated Stallion Station's Danny Boyle, who introduced the crowd to the stallions, as they walked from paddock to paddock.

Boom sireĀ Mach Three looked as strong and healthy as ever and had the crowd's attention, though not really needing any introduction to his greatness.

Of the estimated 90 breeders that turned up, none were more happy than local Christchurch breeder Peter Cahil who won a free service to Auckland Reactor as part of a promotion. Peter was ecstatic with his win, stating that he didn't win last night (lotto) but was definitely the winner today. He will now sit down and plan the right mare for the service to Auckland Reactor.

As a part of the open day and to welcome Auckland Reactor to the farm, Stallion Station offered breeders a service to the superstar for just $4,000 plus GST for the next 48 hours only.

The offer will be limited to the first 25 bookings received. The promotional price clearly makes him one of, if not the best value Stallions of all time, Stated Michael Pedley, Director of Stallion Station who was over from Australia for the open day experience. Based on his pre speed and race record, he simply cannot be compared with any other stallion in that price range.

The other star of the day was undoubtedly Art Official, with breeders keen for a first hand look at the former world record holder who is spending his first year at stud in the southern hemisphere. They were not disappointed in what they saw, with the son of Art Major beautifully presented. He has a presence about him and with such a strong physique and quiet temperament; he really seemed to enjoy the crown attention.

The day wrapped up with a sausage sizzle, some racing videos, refreshments and not a single tremor!
