BALTIMORE — Cloud Computing pulled away from the competition to win the 142nd Preakness Stakes on Saturday in Baltimore, Maryland.
Less than an hour before post time, thewinner was the 7-5 favorite for the Preakness. Always Dreaming was 4-5 on the morning line set Wednesday.
Classic Empire, who finished fourth two weeks ago at Churchill Downs, was the 2-1 second choice followed by Derby runner-up Lookin At Lee at 8-1 and Conquest Mo Money at 9-1. Every other horse in the field had double-digit odds to win.
The racetrack was listed as muddy after Friday’s rainstorm. After three straight days of 90-degree weather, Saturday’s high was 66 degrees.
Country singer Sam Hunt and electro pop producer Zedd co-headlined the pre-race concert under cloudy skies. Good Charlotte was also on the bill.
