Preakness Stakes 2017 (Updated)

Always Dreaming, the Kentucky Derby winner, is the favorite at 8-5. Classic Empire is the next choice at 2-1.

Some picks are here. A lot of people like Classic Empire.

Update: Cloud Computing committed an upset to take over Classic Empire at the wire to win this year's Preakness. He did not run in the Kentucky Derby. Javier Castellano was the jockey, while turf trainer Chad Brown won his first Triple Crown race.

Senior Investment was third, while LookinatLee was fourth.

Always Dreaming finished way up in the pack. He finished eighth.

The time was 1:55.98, way off Secretariat's record. Exacta paid $98.40.

Video to follow when available.

Cloud Computing is a grandson of A.P. Indy, a great sire and the most influential descendant of the Bold Ruler line. A.P. Indy won the 1992 Belmont Stakes and Breeders' Cup Classic. He is a son of Seattle Slew out of Weekend Surprise, a daughter of Secretariat. He is Bold Ruler through and through. A.P. Indy is still hugely influential, especially through his grandson Tapit.
