The 4-year-old gelding moved briskly with fraction of :23.38 for a quarter-mile, :46.95 for the half-mile and 1:10.55 for three-quarters of a mile and still had enough to pull clear to win by 1-1/4 lengths over Ibaka, the even-money betting favorite. Mister Keith as another neck back I third.

Pacific Typhoon paid $6.40 to win, $3.20 to place and $2.60 to show. Ibaka paid $2.40 to place and $2.20 to show. Mister Keith paid $8.20 to show.

The win is the seventh from 25 career attempts for Pacific Typhoon, a gelded son of Don’t Get Mad from the Stormy Atlantic mare My Stormy Elaine. Bred in Oklahoma by Clark Brewster, Pacific Typhoon earned $29,796 to move his total bankroll to $156,606.
