SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Trainer Bill Mott said at midweek there were enough reasons for Good Samaritan to try the Jim Dandy Stakes, even though the field included the winners of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, and even though his horse had never run on dirt.
NEW YORK (AP) — Preakness winner Cloud Computing won't run in the Belmont Stakes, leaving the final leg of the Triple Crown without the winners of the first two races.
Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming also won't run in the 1½-mile Belmont on June 10 in New York.
Trainer Chad Brown confirmed Sunday that Cloud Computing would skip the Belmont, which had been expected.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Cloud Computing stole the Preakness, and any hope of a Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes.
The 13-1 shot did it on six weeks' rest, having skipped the 20-horse roughhouse that is the Kentucky Derby even though he had enough points to get in that race. With another three weeks until the Belmont in New York, Cloud Computing could return to run on his home track.
BALTIMORE (AP) — As Chad Brown stood in the Preakness winner's circle with Cloud Computing, the 38-year-old trainer didn't think about winning the second jewel of the Triple Crown in his first try.
He thought about late mentor Bobby Frankel, who came to Pimlico four times and never hit the board in the Preakness. Frankel died of leukemia in 2009, and was on Brown's mind Saturday.
