King's Ransom galloped away with the Betway Indian 1000 Guineas, the first Classic of the Mumbai season, at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse here on Sunday.

It was Thunberg who set the pace in this eight odd furlongs, the main event of the day, as this filly led by eight lengths ahead of her nearest opponent till the last 200 meters of the race, but PS Chauhan guided the magic filly, King's Ransom at the moment's nick, hitting the front in the last 50 meters to add another Betway trophy to her name. The champion was from the yards of trainer Pesi Shroff.

The champion duo of Chauhan and Pesi Shroff finished with a fine double on the day when only four favourites obliged in a card of ten races.
