Triple Crown

With no Triple Crown in play, Belmont lacks a singular buzz

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.

"We haven't ruled it out," trainer Chad Brown said Sunday. "We're just going to evaluate the horse this week and probably by next weekend we may have a decision."

Cloud Computing didn't race as a 2-year-old because of injury, so he is among the freshest horses out there.
