Hawaiian Typhoon wheeled back from her first win this meet at Remington Park in six days and was not fazed by the quick turnaround, winning the $70,000 Bob Barry Memorial Stakes on Friday night for her first stakes victory.

“With some horses you might be concerned with that quick a turnaround,” said jockey Lane Luzzi, “but (trainer) Austin (Gustafson) had her ready to roll. She went to the track three times between these two starts to gallop and was on her toes every time.”

Luzzi remains undefeated on this 4-year-old filly by Notional, out of the Stormy Atlantic mare My Stormy Elaine, also winning on her in first-level allowance-company six days ago at Remington. She won by five lengths that night, and then winning by one length Friday night.

“We weren’t really worried about the step up in class tonight,” said Luzzi. “She barely lost this same race last year. So we knew she had it in her.”

Last year, Hawaiian Typhoon led the Bob Barry Memorial for every pole, until the finish line, when Alternative Slew caught her to win by a half-length. This year, Alternative Slew tried that tactic again, but came up one length short in second place. Special Treasure was another three-quarters of a length back in third. Hawaiian Typhoon was sent off at 9-5 odds while Alternative Slew was the betting favorite at 8-5. Special Treasure was at 7-1.

The winning filly earned $42,000 for her owner, Carol J. Nelson of Mannford, Okla., from the $70,000 purse and she improved to 15 starts, three wins, and three seconds for $123,753 lifetime. She was bred in Oklahoma by Clark Brewster of Tulsa.

Once again Hawaiian Typhoon made every pole a winning one in this 7-1/2 furlongs race on the grass. She set fractions of :23.88 seconds for the first quarter-mile, :46.81 for the half-mile and 1:10.15 seconds for three-quarters of a mile. Her winning time was 1:28.50 over the firm turf. Alternative Slew closed from last in the field at the break to get second.

Hawaiian Typhoon paid $5.60, $3.20 and $2.60 across the board.
