With his owner gazal singer Jagjit Singh fighting for life in the intensive care unit of the Leelavati hospital after a reported brain hemorrhage on Friday, Rajasthan Royals, a horse owned by the famous singer won Saturday's feature race, the Pelican Trophy, at the Pune racetrack.

Running almost friendless at 8 to 1, the Hymn - Jukebox five-year-old, ridden by CS Jodha and trained by young Adhirajsingh Jodha, came up with a spirited gallop in the last 100 meters to sweep past the front-running Angelo (Akshay up) to post a sensational victory in the main event of the day's nine-race card.
