The 149th running Kentucky Derby took place on May 6, 2023 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. Trainer of Kentucky Derby-winner Rich Strike, Eric Reed joins Janice to reflect on the past year, since winning the derby in 2022.

Eric shares how he knew that Rich Strike would have a fighting chance at winning the entire race, explains how he has been working to make his horse more accessible to visitors over the past year, and expresses his gratitude for being able to compete in such a prestigious event. He later weighs in on the tragic deaths of 7 horses at the track this year and teases a movie and documentary to be made about his win IN 2022, with Rich Strike.
