Jockey Jerry Bailey delivers a popular victory aboard My Typhoon in Saturday's feature, the $75,000 Hilltop Breeders' Cup Handicap at Pimlico.

It wasn't exactly the way a 3-5 shot is supposed to win, but My Typhoon got the job done with a two-length victory in the $75,000 Hilltop Breeders' Cup at Pimlico.

My Typhoon, under Jerry Bailey, wore down pacesetter Flashy Three in midstretch and despite racing greenly earned her first stakes victory in the 1 1/16-mile turf race. Flashy Three held on for second, 1 3/4 lengths in front of third-place finisher Rutledge Ballado in the field of seven 3-year-old fillies.

My Typhoon, an exquisitely bred daughter of European champion Giant's Causeway and Arc de Triomphe winner Urban Sea, paid $3.40 and covered the distance in 1:44.38 over firm turf. Owned by Live Oak Plantation and trained by Bill Mott, My Typhoon has won 2 of 3 starts.
