Eric Reed, the trainer for the longtime Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike, appeared to sidestep ESPN’s questions Wednesday about his alleged tweet disparaging Vice President Kamala Harris.
“So what exactly is Kamara’s qualifications?” asked Gorky on social media in January, to which an account that appeared to be linked to Reed replied. “I heard her knees are great!!”
In an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” Reed sidestepped questions about the tweet, neither confirming nor denying it was his.
“I don’t see anything about it,” Reed told The Sports Network’s John Barr.
“Not being told about it. I don’t know what’s going on out there. I’m more concerned about what happened to Richie and us and this great horse and how much he helped everyone. So, the people out there It’s all about hating that iron can’t become steel, and I just want to leave this kind of thing.”
The “Eric Reed” account @daddyrabbit1964 that tweeted it said it belonged to “the owner of the Mercury Equestrian Center,” aka Reed. It also noted that the account holder was a “horse trainer” and a “Reagan conservative.” It is now set to private.
