Breedings to Auckland Reactor (St Fort Stud, NSW), For A Reason (Cobbity Equine Farm, NSW) and Restrepo (Goodtime Lodge, Victoria) will go up for auction.

The advertised service fees for the three stallions are: Auckland Reactor ($3,000 inc. GST), For A Reason ($2,200 inc. GST) and Restrepo ($1,440 inc. GST).

Auckland Reactor, the former dual NZ Horse of the Year, won his 32 of his 53 starts – including 17 on end at one stage - and $1.8 million in stakes. At the stud he has sired more 190 individual winners in Australia, New Zealand and America including NZ 3YO of the Year Chase Auckland, the fastest Australian bred pacer ever Soho Burning Love (1:48.2), Red Reactor, Willie Go West and Reactor Now.

From only two commercial crops he has sired the winners of $2.1 million at an average of $24,000 per starter. For A Reason has sired both top colts and fillies.
