Harness racing breeders quickly learn that only a few families continue on producing top class horses generation after generation whereas most tend to star for a short time before fading from the scene.

Changeover (In The Pocket) is a good example of the former as his maternal family has been firing non stop for over thirty years and shows no sign of slowing down.

Changeover 1:53.4 ($2,426,765) was a star on the track and now he is at stud hardly a meeting goes by without another Changeover winner.

At last count Changeover already had sixty one winners on board from the 133 qualifiers he has produced and his stocks continue to rise.

Meanwhile his maternal family continues to produce yearling sale graduates each year and this year is no exception.

This years Australasian Classic yearling sale on February 22nd at Karaka in Auckland opens with a filly from this sought after maternal family.

By the champion sire Rocknroll Hanover, Ready Change is the third foal and a half-sister to a 2YO trial winner already this season. She is from a Falcon Seelster half sister to Changeover in Changedown.

Changedown is from the former top pacing mare Chaangerr 1:57.8 ($75,860) who was four year old pacing mare of the year in 1994-1995

Chaangerr was a full sister to the champion Chokin 1:56.2 ($1,801,685) and a half sister to Pretty Smooth, the dam of Anvil Vance 1:57.8 ($445,097)

Pretty Smooth is also the grand dam of Fly Like An Eagle 1:53.9 ($756,178)

Chaangerr has left ten winners at stud with Changeover the obvious standout.

Other winners include the talented mare Change Time 1:56.2 ($76,827), Change Stride 1:57.5 ($91,780), Change Gear 1:54.4 ($69,174) and Chokin Hanover 1:58 ($39,119) the dam of Donegal Chokin 1:59.4 ($76,304)

As you can see, this is a great filly family and whatever Ready Change does on the track, she will have a large residual value when sent to stud.

Ready Change should really give this years round of sales a bright start on February 22nd.
