Cloud Computing Wins the Preakness. Once again no Triple Crown.

Well, once again another year of no Triple Crown winner.  This battle was supposed to be a duel between the Kentucky Derby Winner, Always Dreaming and Classic Empire (who was initially favored).  Up until the last sixteenth of a mile, it did look like a battle.  However, the 13-1 long shot Cloud Computing defeated Classic Empire as he came from behind in a nose to nose battle.

Sadly,  as my horse-racing fan friend Dave says,  “When the Preakness is over with a different victor than the Kentucky Derby,  not much is excitement is left for the Belmont.”  Oh well,  at least we have mint juleps and great hats.  Cheers!


Once again, this Kentucky Derby print by Amy Youngblood is a favorite in the horse racing art world.
