distance, come clean with us the horse before the race, an hour before was 99/1, 80/1 at post time. did you really think rich strike could win the kentucky derby >> we thought he would run really good. nobody thought we would win but we said earlier in the day we know the horse and the paper and numbers and the forum. i can see him being 80/1 but the public doesn't know much about us gave us no recognition didn't watch him train and he was workout was the best for anybody that ran that week and he outran everybody in the race we knew the extra distance and longer stretch and this horse had already won by 18 lengths at the track in our minds if he could fight through the horses he could win. and we absolutely thought we could win. >> pretty amaze. watching him weave through the
7:45 am
field of horses was just magic was there a point in the race where you were like i think we have this because he looked so far behind through most of it. >> i saw him into the final turn move into contention and i thought this is not a bad spot and sonny knows the horse. and i lost him in the middle of the turn he got in a big group of hours and i said i can't find him. where is he and about the time top of the stretch he just dropped to the rail. you are fifth. and i saw him is looking oh my god, dad we might hit the board and middle of the stretch he massed messier i here ken tyson going oh my god. oh my god. and about the second time he said it he put his head in front and i grabbed my father. i said oh dad we're going to win
7:46 am
the derby. and i don't remember hitting the wire because i went down and they jumped on me like i scored the winning touchdown at super bowl. >> well you did basically you. really did and what a ride by your jockey sonny leon you can almost see a moment from the view above where he decides hey let's go win the kentucky derby. you mentioned your dad been talking about your own personal journey been a trainer for 40 years. your dad herbert for 60 years. you have recently had a fire at the farm i think about six years where you lost some of those horses you love and you weren't sure you would continue in horse racing or the a trainer. how much more did that moment saturday mean? >> it meant everything we've had a rough six years. we had the barn fire which was probably the most horrific tragic thing i'd seen at that point. two of my best friends, assistant trainers pass away from cancer a year and a half
7:47 am
ago. by grandson was killed in a tragic accident. the only thing that kept us going was the horses and the love that everybody gave us and, you know, man, rich is america's horse. i keep getting these text and e-mails. he's america's horse he's brought us out of a dark time. >> what a beautiful ending there was a moment when the race was over, eric where they were describing him as feisty. he was nipping at a pony and people didn't know what to make of what was happening. looked like somebody was punching him off what was going on there? >> i'm glad you asked because i want to clear that up. the outrider's job at the end of the race is to get the leading horse and get him calmed down and take him around and let him do the interviews richie was in killer mode to outrun every horse on the track and he had not had a horse after
7:48 am
the finish line so when he saw that pony coming, he thought he had another horse to beat. and man did his job and reached out and grabbed hold of the horse. and made the horse mad he didn't know he was trying to help him he thought he was trying to outrun that horse. and bit his leg terribly couple bad bites and the horse is not a mean horse. he was just in race mode and he didn't understand. that man saved my horse from injury i'm sorry for the injuries he sustained. >> okay. glad you cleared that up we didn't know all that. congratulations eric i assume it is on to the preakness for you. we can't wait to watch rich strike is america's horse don't forget you can watch the preakness stakes saturday may 21st here on nbc and on peacock. >> wow learned a lot from that interview. >> learned a lot about that horse. >> yeah.

life's been hard enough. especially when you're struggling with depression. so, i did some research, took a questionnaire, and talked to my doctor. i'm taking my antidepressant, but i still feel stuck. adding rexulti could help. when added to an antidepressant, rexulti was proven to reduce depression symptoms 62% more than the antidepressant alone. so you can stay on your current treatment and keep moving forward. rexulti can cause serious side effects. elderly dementia patients have increased risk of death or stroke. antidepressants may increase suicidal thoughts and worsen depression in those under 25. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles, and confusion, which could be life-threatening, or uncontrollable muscle movements, which may be permanent. increased cholesterol; weight gain; high blood sugar; decreased white blood cells; unusual urges; dizziness on standing; seizures; trouble swallowing may occur. i'm glad my doctor helped me take another step towards managing my depression. when depression sets you back, keep moving forward. make an appointment to talk to your doctor about adding rexulti to your antidepressant.

queen ice likeness on it even show, people still afraid that perhaps harry and meghan coming may take some of the attention away from the queen. prince harry was actually seen acting today in a launch video for one of his initiatives that was released on youtube. that has many here wondering whether the cameras will also be following the couple when they return here to england hoda. >> lot of good questions there, kristen. let's dive deep we are nbc news royal commentator, daisy mcandrew they will in fact go with your kids but they are limited. they are not going to be in the big photo op t trooping of the color on the balcony what do you think went into the queen's decision to limit them >> reporter: my personal opinion hoda -- and very good morning to you. glad you haven't got covid like so your team on this question my personal opinion is that this is a really neat elegant solution to a big problem that was sitting in the queens intray.
8:18 am
how to manage the photo opportunity. who should stand where how to stop everybody looking at prince andrew and saying what on earth is he doing there because he's persona non grata pretty much everywhere at the moment. and then as you said the harry and meghan issue we know they would have been welcome on the balcony but what would have been unwelcome i think is the idea that all eyes would have been on them all eyes would have been on them looking to see what relations were like these days with windchill, with charles was it ferocity. what was the bad long like you know what it is like when everything mannerism is poored over and analyzed. the rule is if you are a working member of the royal family you are on the balcony if you are not, you are off the balcony that does kill two birds with one stone. >> i'm wondering how you think they will be received by the british public in addition at the invictus
8:19 am
games there were always cameras in tow documenting what was going on >> reporter: i'm hoping that this is the next step in the rehabilitation of harmony as far as the british public is concerned. because their popularity has taken a hit and the feeling is that they have made everything about them there is a bit of me me me rather than we the royal family. and people do feel with the queen being 96, with the country wanting to celebrate her 70 years on the throne, they want to see harry and meghan be a part of that so i think there is a bit of concern that if everywhere they go they are being trailed by camera crews filming everything for netflix, that perhaps that is a bit more than me me me rather than we we we and also there is definitely concern amongst the royal family inside the royal family how much of the
8:20 am
platinum jubilee celebrations behind the scenes is going to end up in the netflix documentary. so i think if they play it right, and if they look like they are being team members, then the british public will say we forgive you for whatever the slights that probably think they have done and move on. as the one thing you were mentions, it is about the children people are so excited that arch and lilibet are coming over. it is lilibet's first birthday on the sunday of the big weekend. wouldn't it be wonderful to see here with her name sake. the photographs being taken by kate you can dream but that would send a message that the family is back together. >> choreographed perfectly there, daisy appreciate you thank you function the insight. 8:20
