New Creation claims South India Oaks

Hail the champion: New Creation (David Allan astride) being led in by trainer Padmanabhan, left, and owner Ameeta Mehra after taking the honours in the South India Oaks.  

Padmanabhan-trained New Creation (David Allan astride) won the South India Oaks, the feature event of the races here on Tuesday (Jan. 1). The winner is owned by Ms. Ameeta Mehra. Jockey K. Sai Kiran scored a treble.

In a well-run race, Tudor Treasure (A. Imran), which was lying fourth, hit the front in the last 150 metres and appeared to have sealed the issue. However, David Allan, who has mastered the course, egged New Creation, which was racing second throughout the run, to come up a burst of speed to pip Tudor Treasure in a photo-finish. Tote favourite La Rondine finished third.
