Brown to decide Monday if Cloud Computing runs in the Travers – Horse Racing Nation

The decision on whether Klaravich Stable’s Cloud Computing will run in Saturday’s Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers Stakes 2017 presented by NYRA Bets will have to wait until Monday, according to trainer Chad Brown.

The colt by Maclean’s Music breezed five furlongs on Saratoga Race Course’s main track Saturday morning, shortly before 9 with Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano in the irons. The pair stopped the timer in 1:01.65 over the track labelled fast.

“It went good, Brown said. “I won’t make any decision yet until I talk to the owners. I’ll be sure about what I’m doing Monday, I’m going to give myself until Monday, I want to see how the horse comes out of the work, take time to talk to the owners, and think about it. He couldn’t have worked any better. I was very happy with the work, and Javier was pleased.”

Castellano, a five-time winner of the Travers who rode Cloud Computing to an upset victory in the Grade 1 Preakness and a fifth-place finish in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy on July 29, said the objective was to keep the horse happy and fresh.

“He felt great,” Castellano said. “I’m happy with the way he did it, the right way. [It was a] nice and easy work. We weren’t looking for anything more because we know he’s a good work horse. It was just something to maintain before he goes to the race.

“[He was] nice and comfortable, relaxed,” he added. “He just sat steady and galloped out beautiful. I didn’t overdo it because today the goal was just to maintain.”
