AngularJS: $q.race() in old angular versions

Angular 1.5.8 implements a $q.race() method which takes an array of promises and returns a promise which is resolves with the value of the first resolved promise.

However i am stuck with angular 1.4 for now and need some kind of functionality like a $q.any or $q.race method.

Currently I use flags inside .then() to "remember" the state of promises which obviously is not ideal.

var resolvedPromise = null;

promise1.then(function(data){
  if(!resolvedPromise === 'promise2'){
    resolvedPromise = 'promise1';
    successcallback(data)
  }
})

promise2.then(function(data){
  if(!resolvedPromise === 'promise1'){
    resolvedPromise = 'promise2';
    successcallback(data)
  }
})

Question

I only need this to work for two promises at a time:

myRaceFkt(p1,p2)
  .then(successcallback)

Is there a more elegant solution without having access to the improved $q-api of 1.5.8?

Answers:

Answer
function myRaceFn(promises){
   return $q(function(resolve, reject) { 
     promises.forEach(function(promise) {
       promise.then(resolve, reject);
     });
   });
}
myRaceFn([promise1, promise2]).then(....
