Cloud Computing on track for Preakness date
From a NYRA release
The lightly raced Cloud Computing ran out of time to make the Kentucky Derby.
But it’s full speed ahead to the Grade 1 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course May 20, trainer Chad Brown said.
The son of Maclean’s Music broke his maiden at Aqueduct in February and followed that up with a second-place finish in the Grade 3 Gotham March 4 and a respectable third-place finish in the Grade 2 Wood Memorial on April 8. Cloud Computing is owned by Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence.
Cloud Computing posted a bullet workout on May 7, covering five furlongs in 1:00.20, and is tentatively scheduled to work again Saturday morning at Belmont, depending on the possibility of rain forecasted.
“I’d like to work him tomorrow,” said Brown. “We’re going to prepare as if we will, and if I can get a clean strip of dirt, we will, but it’s all dependent on the weather. He came out of the Wood Memorial great and has been galloping good so far following the race.”
