CHANGEOVER, the former Kiwi superstar and now flagship sire at Burwood Stud in Queensland, left winners in three countries last week.
Heading the vanguard was the talented New Zealand bred gelding Convert Denario, which outsprinted his rivals to notch his 13th success at Gloucester Park, rating 1:53.7 for 1730 metres, the last 800 in a slick 56.8.
Changeover sired a winning double at Nelson, New Zealand with Jazelle and Southerly Change, while Jaccka Ted won for the second time at Wyndham.
Other recent Changeover winners were The Charging Moa NZ (1:53.2, Yonkers, New York) and Cameos Kiwi (1:58.8, Newcastle).
Changeover has sired the winners of more than $900,000 to date this season.
