Penn National: Guam Typhoon takes eighth straight in Changing Times


Guam Typhoon stretched his winning streak to eight races Saturday night with a wire-to-wire victory in the $100,000 Changing Times Stakes at Penn National.

Ridden by Daniel Centeno, the 6-year-old Guam Typhoon ($4.20) set fractions of 22.40 and 44.49 seconds en route to running six furlongs in 1:09.09. He was 2 3/4 lengths clear at the finish.

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 three stakes.

The 5-year-old mare Nicole H, a possible candidate for the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic, rallied from last to finish second, a nose ahead of Sloane Ranger. It was the seventh straight loss for Nicole H. since she won back-to-back stakes at Aqueduct this past winter.
