Cloud Computing

IMO, his effort in the WOOD was the BEST of any of the TC runners. The TC suddenly became interesting.

Probably will be a bit overbet given the Brown factor but will definitely come running.

Now, all we need is for Classic Empire to do his part and soften up Always Dreaming.

Win and exactas with CE.

Curious as to what you mean here? That his effort was better than the others in the Wood? Or better than any other TC horse?

I just watched a replay of that race earlier today and while CC had a bad break I still can't imagine him beating either IWC or Battalion Runner even if he had a perfect break

Would he beat the top two on a FAIR track?

What was unfair about the track? Is there a bias at AQ that favored the top two?

I have no dog in the fight...

Don't shoot the messenger, but for what its worth, in last night's Preakness preview webinar, Andy Serling picked Cloud Computing...

For the record, I had his picks in my notes as 1) CC 2) CE 3) CO MO MO 4) AD


That and fifty cents will get you a cup of coffee...

Serling can't pick his nose much less the Peakness. New shooters win maybe 10% of these things. CC does have very early pace potential but his 6F times are pedestrian and his two route final times are yawn inspiring. He's lost ground to the winner in both his routes and is now going longer against classier ponies. I don't see it but kuddos if he pulls it off.

would be great for him to run 2nd/3rd just to add price to the triple. people like to take longshots and some will run with in JJ picking this horse over gunny. which is a little strange.

he should be sitting around 4th in a ground saving trip. and he'll have the first jump on every closer and could easily be itm if he gets better.

Visually Cloud Computing looks like a Grade 1 horse.

Seems like he would have to be lengths better than Always Dreaming, unless you expect Always Dreaming to falter for some reason.

i don't see him getting by AD but he could get by CE who's running in his 3rd race in a month and CMM who might be challenged from an outside post once again.

after these 4 horses you have what amounts to be a bunch of deep closers. that are pace dependant

Most of the derby winners win the Preakness, so you will have to find a way to beat Gunnevera and classic empire. He has a good shot to finish in the money and payday should be good. AD will be 4/5 and unbettable, as well as he should finish 4th or worse in this race. Good luck with your selection.

I think Cloud Computing will be close up early maybe in front, and gets first jump on AD. Rested and working great in the AM. Should be a good price (but won't see the 12-1 ml odds).

So most Derby winners win the Preakness, but Always Dreaming is going to finish 4th or worse in a paceless race?

Thankfully this is parimutuel wagering.

I think he was referring to CC finishing 4th

i still can't get over JJ taking this horse over gunny.

don't get me wrong,..closers should be hard to get involved in this preakness. but gunny's FOY was huge and he ran great in several races. JJ just tossed him aside for a horse that hasn't proved nearly as much.
