Ramkumar pose after the trophy presentation ceremony for the South India 1000 Guineas that was won by Tudor Treasure.  

Robert Foley-trained Tudor Treasure, ridden by A. Imran Khan, completed a hat-trick by winning the South India 1000 Guineas, the first classic of the season here on Friday (Dec. 7).

Tudor Treasure was a handy fifth at the monument when Imran, who ran a well-judged raced race, skilfully manoeuvred the mount in the straight and the filly responded to two reminders at the 200m mark to gallop past Hammersmith and take the honours comfortably.

The winner is the property of M.A.M. Ramaswamy Chettiar of Chettinad Charitable Trust. Both Imran Khan and trainer Foley scored a treble each.
