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


He got the perfect setup tonight. He’s been training really well into this race so I was confident he’d run well. When we turn for home I could feel like I had a lot of horse underneath me still.
