Time is getting short but arrangements have yet to be made to have Auckland Reactor return to his native New Zealand for stud duty for the upcoming breeding season which begins September 15.
Peter Heffering, syndicate manager for the group that owns the six-year-old Mach Three son confirmed that despite a number of negotiations no deal has been reached,
"I would have thought that by now we'd have struck a deal but that did not happen. So we're back at square one in terms of any farm buying the horse.
"It may even turn out that we lease the horse and retain ownership," he admitted.
"It is frustrating and time is running out to get him into quarantine but I believe we'll get something organized in the next several days."
Auckland Reactor remains at the Kelvin Harrison stable in New Jersey but has stopped training at this point. In his southern hemisphere racing career the horse won over $1 million in purses.
