Bill Lawrence | May 30, 2017

Cloud Computing (Maclean's Music) might have made it look easy when he won the GI Preakness, but it was anything but.

Lawrence is this week's guest on the Thoroughbred Daily News podcast, brought to you by Taylor Made, and we'll get his thoughts on a huge win by their group in the middle leg of the Triple Crown.
