We present results from 547 optical galaxy redshifts obtained in the region of Horologium-Reticulum (HR) using the 6dF (six-degree field) multi-fiber spectrograph on the United Kingdom Schmidt Telescope. Concentrating upon the inter-cluster regions of the HR Supercluster (HRS), we derive three primary results from our 6dF observations. First, the HRS covers a redshift range from at least 16000 to 22500 kms[minus sign]1. Second, these HRS galaxies exhibit an overall gradient with increasing redshift along a spatial axis of SE-NW with high statistical probability. Third, along the best-fit line from the spatial-redshift linear regression, HRS galaxies comprising the redshift trend are distinctly split into a high- and low-redshift component. Finally, comparisons of the spatial-redshift distribution are made between the HRS and the Shapley supercluster.
