Insouciant Favourite For Eight Carat Classic

Insouciant, the front-runner in the New Zealand Bloodstck Filly Of The Year series, is on target to extend her lead in the Group 2 $125,000 Cambridge Stud Eight Carat Classic (1600m) at Ellerslie on Boxing Day.

At her last start Insouciant (Keeper x Loudenne) was a brilliant winner of the Group 3 Eulogy Stakes at Awapuni. Before that she had won the Group 1 New Zealand Bloodstock 1000 Guineas at Riccarton in splendid fashion.

Insouciant will start favourite for the Boxing Day fillies' feature.

The current points total for Insouciant is 18 - placing her 9 points clear of fellow Keeper filly Keepa Cruisin.

Insouciant will again be ridden in the Eight Carat Classic by top jockey Michael Walker.
