Cloud Computing Clinches Preakness

In the Preakness, Cloud Computing got a flawless three-hole trip and pulled off the 13-1 upset at Pimlico.

Players can not blame the riders of the speed horses in the Preakness.

"He was there", Pletcher said, "but it wasn't like he was dragging Johnny (Velazquez, the jockey) there".

There will be no Triple Crown victor for the second year in a row. Castellano won his second Preakness, his first since 2006 when he was victorious aboard Bernardini in the ill-fated Barbaro Preakness.

For so long in the 142nd Preakness - more than a minute, even - the prospect of a Triple Crown still burned.

They remained in step from the gate opening through three quarters in 1:11.

Ridden by Javier Castellano, Cloud Computing ran 1 3/16 miles in 1:55.98 and paid $28.80 to win.

Cloud Computing is just the third victor in the 142-year history of the Preakness not to run as a 2-year-old. It was just the dark brown colt's fourth career start, the fewest of any horse in the race, and only his second win. Previous year he set the Saratoga record with 40 wins, and later was voted his first Eclipse Award as leading trainer. "People think he can only (be a) turf trainer". With another three weeks until the Belmont in New York, Cloud Computing could return to run on his home track.

"If there is anybody in the horse business who deserves success on a day like yesterday other than Bill Lawrence and especially Seth Klarman, I don't know who it would be", said de Meric, who has handled Klarman's horses for more than 20 years.

Trump son-in-law now part of Russian Federation probe
The paper reported last week that a senior White House official was a focus of the investigation, though it did not name Kushner. The White House disputed the New York Times story, insisting that that "the president has never asked Mr.

He's a hedge fund billionaire, according to Forbes, worth about $1.5 billion. Those are the only races that eluded him in his unbelievable career. Seth, he got into racing by coming to Pimlico. He grew up in Baltimore. "It is richly deserved and my heartfelt congratulations go to them. We had a lot of talks, so we put it together". Then Mr. Brown gave me the opportunity to ride the horse in the Preakness. Brown before the race. "We made a great call".

"Of course", said Casse, a nine-time Sovereign Award victor as Canadian racing's top trainer.

Turns out, Always Dreaming really wasn't ready for such a quick turnaround. I felt that, watching his performance in the Derby, that there was a better chance of beating him here in two weeks - because of him being lightly raced and the spacing - than in the Belmont. That, too, was Pletcher.

"I was incredibly impressed with Classic Empire". "We're just going to evaluate the horse this week and probably by next weekend we may have a decision". "But we didn't have an excuse". "He ran so hard in the Derby and today just wasn't his day", said Pletcher. "I'm so happy, really happy". The colt could have gone on to the Derby, but the trainer and owners thought it was wise to pass on running in a 20-horse race with such an inexperienced horse. "I knew I was in trouble on the backstretch when the other horse got to him, nearly head to head, and engaged him". The second Big Move was Julien Leparoux riding Classic Empire aggressively to keep pressure on the favorite Always Dreaming. Initially, it looks like he came back well. He ran so hard in the Derby.

Basically, that is all one can do.

Classic Empire and Lookin At Lee would face off for the sixth time in the Belmont, and they could be the only horses to run in all three Triple Crown races. The sophomore was wide when beaten by Irish War Cry in the Wood Memorial.

Brown was non-committal about the likelihood of Cloud Computing's turning out again for next month's Belmont Stakes. His dam earned nearly $250,000 and if you delve into the blood, Halo America becomes visible.

Though eligible to run the Kentucky Derby, Cloud Computing trainer Chad Brown opted to skip that race and give the horse a six-week rest. And it was a duel, a heart-pounding one, as the two of them glided down the backstretch side by side.
