American Classic Race wins:
Kentucky Derby (1897)

Typhoon II (1894- ) was an American thoroughbred racehorse that was bred in Tennessee and was the winner of the 1897 Kentucky Derby.

Typhoon won the Derby at 11-5 odds against the favored horse, Ornament, on a very muddy track[1]. After his Derby win, Typhoon II was sold to Bromley and Company of Chicago, Illinois on August 1, 1897 for $12,000.[2] Typhoon followed his Derby win by winning the Club Members' Handicap in St. Louis, Missouri, but lost many races after his three-year old season. The stallion's career declined in his fourth season, notably losing a race at Sheepshead Bay racetrack against only one other competitor.[3]

Typhoon II was gelded in 1899 and was thereafter stabled at the Kenmore Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, a farm owned by Bromley and Company[4] By 1904, Typhoon had been sold and was put to work pulling a milk cart in Indianapolis, Indiana[1][5]
