Guam Typhoon runs streak to eight straight
Saturday, September 22, 2012
Guam Typhoon stretched his winning streak to eight races Saturday with a wire-to-wire victory in the $100,000 Changing Times S. at Penn National. The win by the 6-year-old son of Distorted Humor put the WinStar stallion on the cusp of the $6 million mark in progeny earnings; he currently ranks sixth on the 2012 General Sire List.

Guam Typhoon wasted little time hustling to the lead right after the break. He was pressed through the first quarter mile in :22.40, but was still well within himself. Daniel Centeno urged his mount on around the turn, and he quickly pulled clear as the field hit the homestretch. There was little drama in the late stages, as Centeno relaxed and Guam Typhoon hit the wire a 2 3/4-length winner in 1:09.09 for the six furlongs.

Trainer Jamie Ness claimed Guam Typhoon on behalf of Midwest Thoroughbreds for $25,000 in mid-February and the gelding has proceeded to win six races since March for his new connections, including the $100,000 Byrd Memorial S. and the Chesapeake S. in his two most recent outings.

With the winner's share of $56,800 from the Changing Times, Guam Typhoon is now 13-3-2 in 24 starts, earning $431,434.

Guam Typhoon is out of La Cucina (IRE), whose offspring include Miss Isella, a three-time Grade 2 winner at Churchill Downs, and Sir Cherokee, winner of the Arkansas Derby (G2) and Ack Ack H. (G3).
