Mumbai: Ahead of Times won the Betway Indian 2000 Guineas, the feature event in a telling fashion, at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse here on Sunday.
Placed last in this over-ten furlongs, eight-horse contest, Ahead Of Time won over three lengths ahead of Supernatural, for his first classic. It was jockey A Sandesh who ruled the roost as he anchored the colt without using his whip.
Jockey A Sandesh emerged as the champion as he finished with four winners, while only two tote favourites obliged in a day of eight events, leaving the punters high and dry.
