Talented two-year-filly Supriya became Changeover’s first ever winner when she easily disposed of her five opponents in the first race at Winton today.
Driven by Dexter Dunn for trainer Cran Dalgety, Supriya spaced her rivals by 5 & ½ lengths to win in a time of 2.00.0 over the one mile journey.
Supriya’s maiden win came at just her second start. Her debut resulted in a tidy fifth in a heat of the Sires Stakes.
Supriya, who is likely to contest some of the two-year-old fillies features later on in the season, is owned by the Beeintowin syndicate which is managed by Addington Raceway’s Ged Moor.
Mooar, who was formerly employeed by Nevele R Stud, has always been of the opinion that Changeover would do a very good job at stud.
Although Supriya was his first winner, plenty of Changeover’s other progeny are showing huge promise, including Oneover, who was a super second in the fourth heat of the Young Guns.
He will be a great chance of giving Changeover his second winner when he competes in the NZ Yearling Sales Series Graduate at Alexandra Park on Friday.
The 2.4 million-dollar earning son of In The Pocket currently has 17 qualifiers all up, including smart qualifiers, Atchoo, Nuala, Bold Ruler, and Prince Of Pops, who has placed twice from just two starts.
Other smart winners on the Winton card today were: Perfect Sunrise, Millwood Pink Lady, Jocy Jaccka, I Smart, and Cyclone Kiwi.
