Auckland Reactor

1:52.9 - $1,837,043. Bay Horse foaled 2004. 15.3 Hands

Auckland Reactor was an excitement machine as a racehorse and he is now forging an exciting stallion career.

He won his first 17 starts in a row – 24 of his first 27 starts. He was the quickest New Zealand horse ever to get to $1 million in earnings.

Auckland Reactor arrived in the big time with a bang in winning the Group 1 NZ Sires Stakes 3yo Final in November 2007. This was the start of a dominating two seasons where he blitzed the opposition in six further Group 1’s – the NZ Derby (NZ Record), NZ Free-For-All (NZ Record), Auckland Cup, Taylor Mile, NZ Messenger (Race Record) and NZ Jewels 4yo Emerald.

Now as a sire he has already a dual Group 1 sire and was Australia's Leading First Crop Stallion.

  • Two time NZ Horse of the Year. Seven time Group One winner.
  • A dual Group 1 sire including the star three year old Chase Auckland! Also the Group 1 2yo Gold Reactor.
  • 2016/17 Leading First Season Sire in Australia!
  • Sire of six Group 1 horses from his first two crops.

As an awesome example of speed from the Direct Scooter sireline, we expect Auckland Reactor to cross well with similar mares to those which have  typically worked well with this sireline.

One of the very best crosses for Direct Scooter line stallions has been Falcon Seelster or Falcon Seelster line mares. These two sirelines just seem to click. For example if we look at Auckland Reactor’s own sire Mach Three, he has left horses of the calibre of Fly Like An Eagle, Fiery Falcon, and Millwood Meg out of Falcon Seelster mares.

So any Falcon Seelster or Falcon Seelster line mares (such as McArdle, Elsu, Million To One, Ultimate Falcon, Rich And Spoilt, etc) could be well suited for Auckland Reactor.

No Nukes line mares have also achieved good results with Direct Scooter line stallions. If we once again look at Auckland Reactor’s sire Mach Three, he has left $100,000 earners out of Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Caprock and Northern Lights mares.

Live Or Die mares particularly have crossed well with Direct Scooter line stallions.

Then of course  other No Nukes line stallions include American IdealSafely Kept, Village Jasper, Ticket To Heaven, Barnett Hanover, Union Guy, Kinney Hanover, etc.

A cross that has really emerged in recent years has been the Direct Scooter line stallion over a Cam Fella line mare.

The great Smoken Up is of course bred in this cross, as is Waikiki Beach and the Hunter Cup winner Choise Achiever.

Mach Three over Cam Fella line mares produced horses such as Mysta Magical Mach (Camtastic), Majestic Mach (Fake Left), Mach Alert (Fake Left), Rosa Mach (Fake Left), and star Canadian female Monkey On My Wheel (Presidential Ball).

We believe particular note should be given to Bettors Delight mares. On paper, and in terms of type and racing characteristics, it appears to be a cross that should work.

Other Cam Fella line stallions include Fake LeftArmbro Operative, Precious Bunny, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.

Of course the Albatross sireline has always been a favourite of Direct Scooter line stallions and even though Auckland Reactor is out of a Soky’s Atom mare, we see Albatross line mares as potential good fits for him.

Such Albatross line stallions include Holmes Hanover, Vance Hanover, Butler BG, Talk About Class, etc.

Abercrombie line mares are another group of mares which could also suit Auckland Reactor. Mach Three, Christian Cullen and Courage Under Fire have all sired stakeswinners out of Abercrombie line mares. Recent examples of horses bred on this type of cross include Christen Me, Sleepy Tripp, O Baby, etc.

In Australia and New Zealand such Abercrombie line stallions include Artsplace, Art Major, Astreos, Grinfromeartoear, Artiscape, Albert Albert, Modern Art, Life Sign, Dream Away, Real Desire, Pacific Rocket, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, Panorama, Fitch II, Crouch, Orange Sovereign, etc.

One of the best crosses for Auckland Reactor’s sire Mach Three, both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere has been the Mach Three / Beach Towel cross. Horses such as Somebeachsomewhere, Sir Lincoln and Muscle Beach are all bred this way. So it should also be an interesting cross for Auckland Reactor.

One interesting cross for Mach Three is Road Machine mares, which from a limited amount of foals, has produced such horses as Russley Rascal, Joyfuljoy and the $100,000 earner Red Army.  So this could also be an intriguing cross for Auckland Reactor.

In fact Most Happy Fella line mares in general could very well suit Auckland Reactor as both Christian Cullen, Mach Three and Courage Under Fire have all left multiple $100,000 earners out of such mares.

Most Happy Fella line stallions include Smooth Fella, New York Motoring, Whats Next, Troublemaker, etc.
