Notable Wins: None
Cloud Computing is a lightly raced horse who won his maiden at Aqueduct as a 3-year-old Feb. 11, 2017. He’s since run in a pair of stakes races finishing 2nd in the Gotham (G3) and 3rd in the Wood Memorial (G2). But his final 3/8 mile time in the Wood was a very slow :39.82 seconds, but he did make up some ground on a track that favored speed.
Cloud Computing has put on some weight since that race and his trainer Chad Brown says his talented colt will be fresher. Cloud Computing should be stalking or near mid-pack in the Preakness, but he’ll need to take another step forward with a stronger showing to contend.
Since the Wood Memorial, Cloud Computing has come back with three solid works including a pair of 5 furlong bullets in 1:00.20 at Belmont. He shipped to Pimlico yesterday, so follow his progress and adjustment on the track.
Javier Castellano takes the mount on Cloud Computing in the Preakness for major client and trainer Chad Brown after riding Gunnevera in the Kentucky Derby. Chad Brown, last year’s Eclipse Award-winning trainer, will be looking for his first victory in a Triple Crown race on Saturday with Cloud Computing his first-ever Preakness entrant.
