Cloud Computing Pays Out at Preakness

Always Dreaming was the betting favorite for the Preakness Stakes on Saturday, and Classic Empire was expected to be his closest competitor according to the odds for the second jewel of Triple Crown at Pimlico. It was Cloud Computing, though, that came away with the payout.

Coming off a victory in the Kentucky Derby, Always Dreaming was set as the betting chalk on the Preakness Stakes odds, sitting at -110 to win the race on Saturday afternoon. Classic Empire, who was a disappointing fourth at the Kentucky Derby, was listed at +250 on the Preakness Stakes odds on Saturday afternoon, with a duel between the favorites expected.

And that’s how the Preakness started, with Always Dreaming and Classic Empire leading the way through the first half of the race. Always Dreaming, though, faded and it looked like Classic Empire would cruise to the victory – leading by as many as three lengths at one point.

But Cloud Computing would surge down the stretch, finally overtaking Classic Empire to pay out with a victory in the Preakness Stakes. Cloud Computing was set at +1200 on the odds to win the Preakness Stakes on Friday evening, and had actually slipped to +1500 on those betting lines by Saturday afternoon. It was the first Triple Crown win for trainer Chad Brown.

Cloud Computing didn’t race in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. The last horse to win the Preakness Stakes without racing in the Kentucky Derby was Rachel Alexandra back in 2007.


Longshot Senior Investment Finishes Third

Classic Empire held on for second place at the Preakness Stakes, while Senior Investment was third; Senior Investment had been set at a longshot +4000 to win the race on Saturday afternoon, and also wasn’t part of the 20-horse field for the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago.

Lookin at Lee finished the Preakness Stakes in fourth place, while Gunnevera was fifth, Multiplier was sixth, and Conquest Mo Money was seventh. Lookin at Lee, second at the Kentucky Derby, was at +1200 odds to win the Preakness Stakes. Gunnevera, seventh at the Kentucky Derby, was at +1400, with Multiplier at +2500, and Conquest Mo Money at +1400.

Always Dreaming ended up eighth at Pimlico, ahead of just Hence (ninth) and Term of Art (tenth). Hence was at +2000 odds to win the Preakness; Term of Art was a +6600 longshot.
