Insouciant Provides Gr. 1 Success For Keeper

9 Nov 2007

Cambridge Stud sire Keeper has provided the quinella in Saturday's Group 1 New Zealand Bloodstock 1000 Guineas (1600m) at Riccarton.

Insouciant (Keeper x Loudenne) has won the coveted three-year-old fillies race with a bustling front-running display in the hands of top jockey Michael Walker.

Second across the line was the Cambridge Stud bred-and-owned Lovetrista. However, she was subsequently relegated to third behind another Keeper filly, Keepa Cruisin.

It was the first Group 1 progeny success for Keeper, a Group 1 winning son of Danehill.
