Activation is set to defend his Western Districts Country Championships Qualifier crown next year after making a crosstown switch of stables.
The winner of this year's $150,000 qualifier at Coonamble and runner in the $500,000 final, Activation is one of a number of horses which has already exited the Kody Nestor stables.
Nestor confirmed last week he would be taking a break from training from November 15, and plenty of horses have already been transferred.
Many will stay in Dubbo, with Activation one of five moving to the care of Clint Lundholm.
Activation, a five-year-old gelding with three wins and three placings from 11 starts, will be joined at Lundholm's stables by Disobey, Niccourette, Red Roger, and Rubick Sun.
Leading Tamworth trainer Cody Morgan, who recently had three horses contest the $1.3 million Kosciuszko feature event at Randwick, is a big winner from Nestor's decision to wind things down.
According to Racing NSW, 22 of Nestor's horses had been transferred on Friday morning and 12 of those were headed to Tamworth.
Among the contingent now trained by Morgan are highly-rated up-and-comers Grandellie and Talbragar.
Talbragar was an impressive winner on debut at Narromine last weekend while Grandellie has one win from two starts.
Jailbreak is another already on the move. A star of Nestor's stables in recent years and a horse which was a chance of earning a spot in the Kosciuszko field, Jailbreak is now trained at Bathurst by Gayna Williams.
Another top bush trainer, Williams has been in fine form lately and scored a winning treble at her home track last week while she also won the Bathurst Cup and Forbes Cup recently with From The Bush.
Lundholm's fellow Dubbo trainers Dar Lunn and Connie Greig have also picked up a new galloper each, in the form of Daredevil and Camp Cove respectively.
Speaking about his plan to take a break last week, Nestor said he had given his owners his thoughts on where each of his horses should end up.
"At the end of the day, the horses comes first in my eyes," he said.
Nestor still had 28 horses to his name on Friday. Stable star Cardiff and the likes of Fast Talking, What The Fuss, and Sneak Preview among them.
Nestor has Fast Talking, Vital Verse, and Sultry Prince down to race at Coonabarabran on Sunday.
Fast Talking will contest the feature event, the $75,000 Coonabarabran Cup (1600m), after placing in cups at Mudgee, Dubbo, and Bathurst this preparation.
