Auckland Reactor is currently third on the harness racing three-year-old sires list in New Zealand with $341,698 in progeny earnings to date with 24 starters, nine winners and 48 qualifiers from 141 registered foals. 

This Thursday, Auckland Reactor star three-year-old boom pacer Chase Auckland returns to the track in preparation for the upcoming Great Northern Derby in Auckland in three weeks time.

With a unbeaten record of seven starts for seven wins ($255,179) and with a 1:52.2 mile rate over 1950 metres registered against his name, much is anticipated of this son of Auckland Reactor on his return to the track. It has been six weeks since he last raced. Chase Auckland is the first Group 1 winner produced by Auckland Reactor in New Zealand.

Two other colts by Auckland Reactor, both nominated for the New Zealand Derby, to impress are recent first start winner Jazzy Star (1:55.8 mile rate) and Ardtoo winning his last two starts.

In Australia Auckland Reactor was the leading first season sire for 2016/2017 season. He had 115 foals for 10 winners including a Group 1 winner Gold Reactor from his first crop. Gold Reactor won a $100,000 Queensland Final. Another filly to impress recently winning by large margins and winning her last three starts is Soho Burning Love 1:52.6. Auckland Reactor has already left a two-year-old filly winner in Australia from his second crop (Cap In Hand, 1:59.7 - one start) from four starters to date. 

In summary Auckland Reactor (Mach Three) has bred two Group 1 winners from his first crop current three-year-olds, has progeny earnings of $624,936, has bred 24 individual winners to date and 83 qualifiers or starters to date and remember that the three-year-old season is just getting underway.

At the Australasian Classic Yearling Sale at Karaka, in Auckland this Monday February the 12th, Auckland Reactor only has the one colt for sale, Lot 99 and what a stunner he is.

This colt is closely related to the promising three-year-old King Of Swing ($236,244).
