Timaru Treble - Insatiable Impressive Back to Back


Given a good ride by Warren Kennedy, Insatiable (4 g All Too Hard – All Day Baby, by More Than Ready) was another to score consecutive wins this season following victory in the $18,500 Rating 75 1200 metres on 6 October at Timaru.


In the race beforehand, Kennedy combined with stable-mate Talisker (Embellish) to win over 1200 metres and remain unbeaten in two starts this season, and Insatiable franked the act.

After receiving a perfect trip when resuming with victory in the Rating 65 1000 metres on 2 September at Riccarton, with Opie Bosson aboard, Insatiable travelled sweetly in midfield behind a fetching pace set by O’Jessica (Deep Field), who turned for home with a commanding lead, but Kennedy picked a nice path near the rail before chasing her down over the concluding stages.

It was a big win by Insatiable, who displayed his natural talent when competitive in good fields last season and now won three from seven starts.

“It was a lovely ride by Warren (Kennedy), letting the speed go,” said co-trainer Mark Walker.

“He’s a horse that we think has plenty of upside to come, but taking quite a long time to mature mentally, if anything, and we felt the trip away and being stabled at our base at Riccarton would be the makings of him.

“We still think he’s a got a nice race in him over the carnival (November at Riccarton), and certainly another step in the right direction today.”

In the race sponsored by Jon Snow & Echoes Of Heaven @ Clearview Park, Insatiable ran in a slick 1:10.7, last 600m 34.5, for 1200 metres on Soft5 footing, and paid $5.20 & $1.90 on the NZ TAB tote.

Insatiable was purchased by David Ellis CNZM for $190,000 at the 2021 Karaka Book 1 Sale, from the draft of Windsor Park Stud, and owned by Te Akau All Too Much Racing Partnership (Mgr: Karyn Fenton-Ellis MNZM).

“I’ve just been sent a photo of one of the part-owners, Anton Lienert-Brown, who played this morning for the All Blacks in the World Cup and he’s watching the race with the player of the day, Damian McKenzie,” Ellis said.

“Opie (Bosson) thought from day one that he had the makings of a very good horse, but just went through a growing stage and needed to get his mind on requirements, but he’s working it out now.

“He was giving the tearaway leader five kilos, so it was a good effort to reel her in and he was good enough to do that.

“He was a really nice physical specimen when we bought him as a yearling and he’s just continuing to improve.

“Ashley Handley, who is in charge of team at Riccarton, together with Kendyll Lee, is doing an amazing job with all the horses and has some really excellent staff helping her, inlacing Amit Gujar and Hannah Lowry.”

The sire of Insatiable, All Too Hard (Casino Prince), is a half-brother to the unbeaten champion Black Caviar (Bel Esprit), who won all 25 starts, including 15 Group One wins, while also the sire of Queensland Horse of the Year Alligator Blood, Champion Sprinter in Hong Kong, Wellington, and multiple Group One winners Behemoth and Forbidden Love.

All Too Hard has sired 59 stakes' winners and over 1400 wins in total.

All Day Baby, Insatiable's dam,  is by international sire More Than Ready (Southern Halo). Incredibly, world renowned dam sire More Than Ready (Southern Halo) has sired over 4,300 winners including 291 stakes' winners and 50 Group One winners, and is already proving an exceptional Australian broodmare sire.

More Than Ready has been a Champion Sire in both hemispheres, proved to an outstanding sire of sires, and going from strength-to-strength as a broodmare sire.

Insatiable was strapped by Hannah Lowry.
