The Kylie Rasmussen trained gelding was having his sixth start and came into the race off a third place finish in his heat.
After settling at rear from his back row draw, Gold Reactor moved up three wide with cover as they approached the bell.
With 400 metres to travel the son of Auckland Reactor exploded off cover and quickly hit the front. He kept going, held off all challenges down the home straight and covered himself in Group One glory!
Bred and owned by Murray Cole and Beau Watson, Gold Reactor's earnings have swelled to $62,697 after his maiden win.
Gold Reactor is the second foal of the Ball And Chain mare Channelling Gold and he will now forever be remembered as Auckland Reactor's first Group One winner!
