There will be no Triple Crown this year as Cloud Computing eeked out a win Saturday afternoon at Pimlico in Baltimore. Jockey Javier Castellano took home his second win of his career and his first graded race of his career.

LONG SHOT: According to Odd Shark, Cloud Computing was a 14-1 shot heading to the gate on Friday. The colt beat out Classic Empire by a nose hair.

DERBY WINNER BOUNCED: Always Dreaming was a 4-5 favorite to win at Pimlico. It was almost a sure thing for those who were going to the desk to bet the race. However, Always Dreaming smashed the hopes of everyone by finishing eighth.
