From the backyard of his home in Mechanicville to the winners circle at Pimlico, Chad Brown has remained humble. "Its a dream come true" said Brown after winning, "But more than me, its my staff. So many dedicated employees who work so hard particularly on this horse (Cloud Computing), I've had 3 trainers help develop him and without a strong team around me i wouldn't be here".
