After favorites Always Dreaming and Classic Empire dueled for the majority of the race, Cloud Computing pulled the upset to win the Preakness Stakes.


Telekinesis was purchased for $470,000 at the Keeneland November Sale in 2015 and is out of Intentional Cry, whose mother is six-time graded stakes winner Gold Mover. He has been stabled at Casse’s barn on the Fair Grounds backstretch under the supervision of David Carroll all winter long and has turned in some noticeable works in doing so. Such moves include a bullet work on Jan. 6 where he drilled a half-mile in 47 flat.

“He’s a horse we like a lot,” Carroll said. “He’s a beautiful looking colt that’s real well-bred and owned by great people. He’s a two-turn horse and that will be his end game. We’re looking forward to getting him started and just running well and moving forward from there.”

Telekinesis will be piloted by Florent Geroux.
