Seth Klarman and William Lawrence's Cloud Computing, most recently third in the G2 Wood Memorial, may possibly skip the Kentucky Derby according to drf.com. The 3-year-old son of Maclean's Music possesses 40 points, placing him currently 20th on the leaderboard (pending a late nomination of Conquest Mo Money, which would knock Cloud Computing out of the Top 20).
The horses in positions 21-24 on the leaderboard are all interested in entering the Kentucky Derby, according to their connections (Untrapped, Lookin at Lee, Sonneteer, Royal Mo).
“The horse looks great, but he is lightly raced,” said trainer Chad Brown. “We haven't made a final decision yet, but we're leaning towards passing and pointing to the Preakness or even a summertime campaign. We'll see what he's ready for right now.”
Cloud Computing will work for the first time since the Wood this weekend, as will Klarman and Lawrence's other Derby prospect, Practical Joke.
