WOW… When did Cloud Computing have those afterburners installed? Did you see that final burst of speed jockey Javier Castellano found in his horse?
13-1 shot Cloud Computing won the 2017 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course and ended the Triple Crown bid of Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming.
As the Preakness began it looked like a two horse race between the favorites Always Dreaming and Classic Empire. Then Always Dreaming started to fade and Classic Empire came out of the final turn with a 2 1/2 length lead and an apparent victory. But wait… it’s not over yet… here comes Cloud Computing!
Jockey Javier Castellano got his second win in Baltimore at the Preakness as Cloud Computing won by a nose.
