On the track, Changeover had very few equals, winning at the highest level of racing from two years of age through to six.
As a juvenile, Changeover recorded two wins, including the Listed PGG Wrightson NZ Yearling Sales Series Open but it was as a 3yo that Changeover shone the brightest winning 14 races – the last 10 on end – in a season that saw him capture the Group 1 Northern Derby, Group 1 NZ Derby, Group 1 Australasian Breeders Crown Final and the Listed Harness Jewels Emerald. Other notable victories included the Group 2 3YO Flying Stakes, Group 2 Southern Supremacy Final, Group 3 Rising Stars Championship, Listed Yearling Sales Series Final and Listed Waikato Guineas. As a result of his deeds that season he was not surprisingly crowned the NZ 3YO Pacing Colt of the Year.
At 4 Changeover claimed the Group 2 Superstars Championship fresh up before going on to win the Group 1 Taylor Mile and 4YO Harness Jewels Emerald, becoming the first horse to record back to back Jewels victories.
As a 5yo, Changeover claimed Australasian racing’s biggest prize, the NZ Trotting Cup, in a new NZ and World Record time of 3:56.4. The 2009 season also resulted in him recording his career best time of 1:53.4 when winning the Group 1 Len Smith Mile at Menangle, New South Wales. He also won the Group 2 Bendigo Cup, Group 2 Heat of the Inter Dominion Series and the Listed Spring Cup.
At 6 Changeover won the Group 2 Waikato Flying Mile in a slick 1:55.1.

Other Direct Scooter line stallions have crossed particularly well with Falcon Seelster mares so mares by Falcon Seelster and his sire sons McArdle and Elsu are highly recommended for Changeover.
No Nukes line mares (Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Caprock, Union Guy, Village Jasper, Red River Hanover) are also a must for Changeover given how well they have crossed down-under with Direct Scooter line sires.
Albatross (Holmes Hanover, Soky's Atom),Cam Fella (Bettor's Delight, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Cameleon, Washington VC, Fake Left, Aces N Sevens) and Abercrombie(Artsplace, Artiscape, Dream Away, Art Major, Grinfromeartoear, Albert Albert) line mares are all good matches too with Changeover seeming to have an affinity in particular for Cam Fella line mares.
