One Change (2c Bettor’s Delight / Changedown by Falcon Seelster) won at Addington on the 17th May where he drew No.4 and was sent out favourite for the Group 1 Garrards 2YO Sires Stakes Final where he was quickly away to lead early before taking the trail behind stablemate Flying Even Bettor and turning for home these two put a big gap on the field with One Change getting up to win by a nose from his stable mate in a Track Record 1:53.4 Mile Rate for the 1980m. He is now top of the Jewels Leaderboard with $118,437 but his actual stakes winnings are $212,707 because 2 races he has won are not eligible for his Jewels tally – bred by RG Carr & DG Kirkbride.
