    The one downside is when horses not up to the mark performance wise are given a shot at stud on the the back of what Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, Sundon have done at stud. Several horses have gone to stud in the last 5+ years which I could never patronize on their performance. Gotta Go Collect is a prime example. He was given a great shot by breeders with a first crop of 124 foals which are now 3yr olds. He has sired one nice horse who has won four races to date. The other 123 havn't bothered the the winners circle to date.

    well im one of the crazy people sending a mare to him and a coloured mare at that so im completely deluded (which my mates know to be quite true), but the coloured stock lack that sheer brilliance and hoping that is what Auckland reactor can bring to the party, the mare being reasonably bred for a coloured one being by million to one who brings the falcon seelster cross into it, he was freaky to watch at times and considering I only breed to train and drive myself and don't have to shell out a single dollar on outside costs excluding vet fees well 3k is pretty good value in my books, I will however be spitting chips if it doesn't have various splashes of white on it lol

    Hi Dallas, He's a real nice type and got some breeding behind him, Art Major from Matt's Scooter mare from the Minnehaha clan. I remember seeing him as a baby in the Harness Racing International Mag. I reckon Monique will be very interested. Richard

    hi yes followed him since a baby, very nice colt, totally different colour gene to the skewbalds here in Australia with him being a dominant white/maximum sabino, there was a courage under fire colt here of the same gene who unfortunately passed away and there is a colt in SA that races as painted swaffham all being from plain parents and themselves popping out white, pretty cool really.
    I had hoped to win lotto to buy the art major bloke but sadly that just never goes to plan lol

    Given Chase Auckland's super impressive win in the NZ Sires Stakes, what do breeders think of Auckland Reactor's credentials now?
    Other AR progeny incl. :

    Gold Reactor $66k . 8 starts, 1 win
    Soho Burning Love $20k 12 starts, 1 win
    Antero $12k. 7 starts, 1 win

    Not a breeder Richard but he is going to need more than Chase Auckland to show up this season to keep getting large books. I don't know how many he is serving now but surprisingly he was better supported in Australia than NZ last season 146/95

    Thanks Kevin and Katie.
    Yes, Antero is a nice horse. He hasn't placed further back than 3rd and has run a 1:56.5 winning mile rate.
    Maybe Auckland Reactor's progeny will get better with age. Let's see. Betterthanched, Tintin, For A Reason etc. might be a little ahead at the moment at the less than $5k service mark.

    Stewart/Tonkin have a 3yo first starter, Shining Oro, in R2 at Melton tonight
    Let's see what they can do with an AR
    Analysis says it was good winning a trial a while back
    Dam, Totally Oro, was a metro winner but as yet has produced zip in the barn
