8:02 am

8:03 am
but this morning, that horse is nursing a sore feet as america nurses sore hearts. >> they're off in the belmont stakes! and california chrome has a very good start. >> reporter: unlike in the derby and the preakness, california chrome didn't break away. after the neck and neck race, tonalist pull ahead in the final stretch. >> it won't be a triple crown this year! it's going to be close, it's going to be very close! >> reporter: california chrome's owner steve coburn's frustration boiled over. >> if you can't make any points to get into the kentucky derby, you can't run in the two races. it's all or nothing. because this is not fair to these horses that have been running their guts out for these people. this is a coward's way out in my
8:04 am
opinion. >> reporter: coburn was so worked up, even his wife tried to calm him down. his reaction was seen by many as a case of sour grapes. >> steve coburn went on a sore loser rant post-race. >> the rant setting social media on fire. #soreloser. one tweeting -- steve coburn needs to learn that if you win with grace, you need to learn how to lose with grace. a comment day or the writing -- i'm glad the horse lost, he's not worthy of owning a triple crown winner. jockey was racing in his second attempt at a triple crown but again came one leg short. >> i looked down, he was bleeding a little bit, the right leg. i had to have the right horse and today he was -- california chrome, he doesn't have it today. >> reporter: california chrome's trainer art sherman joins me
8:05 am
now. and art, what was your reaction when you heard steve coburn's comments? >> well, i didn't really know about it until i was doing an interview myself and i think he was just kind of let down. and probably said a couple of words that he really didn't mean. you know, things out of context. you know, we're in a big race, you can't make a lot of excuses. even though the horse did have an excuse, he got banged by the 3 horse leaving the gate and it grabbed his quarter pretty deep. when he came back to the barn, he was bleeding. we had the vet over, we trimmed his foot. we cleaned up the wound, gave him an antibiotic shot. so he wouldn't get any infection. he was okay walking this morning. you figure -- in layman's term, you would have
8:06 am
to say it was like a broken fingernail and you know how it hurts when it happens. >> reporter: why do you think he made those comments? >> you know, i really don't know. i know it's something to do with the triple crown, you know, it's wear and tear on you, you run three races in five weeks, it's hard on the horse, and he had this comment to me that he didn't think it should be that people nominate for the triple crown should run in the triple crown, not just pick the races and freshen their horses up. we know that five-week period is really tough on a horse. so, i think he was kind of aggravated, having the favorite, and disappointments leading up to this. >> reporter: how much do you think the celebration of the day played a role in it? >> you know, i think, leading up to that point, you know, you get
8:07 am
this real big high then the letdown right after, and then being miked up and in the interview, he probably kind of lost it a little bit. >> reporter: and your thoughts on the horse? >> i'm going to bring him home and doctor him up and it will probably take me at least two weeks to get to where he feels comfortable and then we'll give him six, to seven weeks, out on the farm and let him be a horse. he needs to do that. we'll look for him around the breeders cup time. hoping he comes back like i know he can. you know, he's a good horse. >> art sherman, thank you so much for joining us. we're not used to, is california chrome being a normal horse. >> you can see that coburn even startled his wife, with her reaction. >> that was quite a moment. >> you have to feel with the jockey, as well, second time going for the triple crown and didn't get it.

8:10 am
are sending messages of support. >> it's just a testimony of who he is and who they are. >> i don't know who i am >> reporter: he's perhaps best known for his tv role on 30 rock and his decade on saturday night live. remember, sources say that the truck driver was driving that walmart truck you saw in the video, walmart now telling abc news, we're profoundly sorry that one of our trucks were involved. if it's determined that our truck caused the accident, walmart will take full responsibility. dan? >> gio, thank you. we're pulling for tracy morgan. a lot of new information coming out about sergeant bowe bergdahl. we're learning much more about his brutal captivity. why he's not ready to speak with his family yet and why his hometown abruptly canceled that celebratory parade. abc's linzie janis has the story. >> reporter: this morning, new details of the conditions that bowe bergdahl was subjected to while being held by the taliban.
8:11 am
abc news has was kept in a cage in the dark. an american official said, quote, they kept him in a shark cage in total darkness, for weeks. possibly months. a senior defense official telling abc news, it should not be surprising that bergdahl was held in brutal conditions and was abused and beaten. as for his current condition, sources tell abc news, bergdahl is doing physically well. going for walks and speaking to staff assigned to him. but he's not yet mentally prepared to speak to family and friends. bergdahl's next step, longer-term therapy and counseling at a military medical center in san antonio before the ultimate goal of returning home to hailey, idaho. now, for the first time, we're learning why that town canceled his homecoming celebration.
8:12 am
>> there's been some specific threat e-mails toward the bergdahls. >> reporter: the fbi says it's monitoring the situation. the police chief also telling abc news one message hoped that bergdahl would come back with bombs strapped to himself. the threats coming amid controversy about the possible circumstances of bergdahl's capture. he was taken hostage apparently after walking away from his post. sources tell abc news, bergdahl does not know about the controversy surrounding his release and he's not been asked about his alleged desertation. he doesn't like being called sergeant. >> a long road to recovery. thank you. meanwhile, hillary clinton is talking about the deal to free bergdahl in an exclusive interview with diane sawyer. >> did he make a deal with the devil by releasing five
8:13 am
taliban?. >> i think this was a hard choice, which is why i think my book is so aptly named. if you look at the factors going into the decisions, of course there are competing interests and values. i mean, one of our values we bring everybody home off the battlefield, the best we can, it doesn't matter how they ended up in a prisoner-of-war situation. >> it doesn't matter? >> it does not matter. we bring our people home. >> she seems to have supported the deal. let's bring in host of abc's "this week," george stephanopoulos. george, gorod morning to you. what are the political ramifications for hillary if she decides to run? >> absolutely. the president saying no apologies at all for bringing him home. i don't think there's any danger in standing by that. part of the military code. the big questions are now, what happens to bowe bergdahl next? once he does recovery, once the
8:14 am
investigation goes forward. will he face some kind of trial? will he face any more punishment? >> five years in captivity. so, let me ask you, you're going to air other portions of the interview, between diane sawyer and hillary clinton, including a part diane really presses clinton if she'll run for president. did diane achieve any more clarity on this issue? >> i think the clarity coming out of this, hillary clinton certainly seems poised to run. as far as when the announcement is going to come, bottom line, i think when she's good and ready. she's in such a commanding position right now, looking at the democratic nomination. 7 out of 10 democrats want her to get the nomination. one big caveat, she had 50-point lead over barack obama in the early stages in the last campaign as well. >> george, thank you.
8:15 am
>> and diane coming up with many new ways to ask it. all right, george thanks again. george has a big story this morning, including much more of that exclusive interview with hillary clinton. >> and of course, don't miss all of diane's exclusive interview with hillary clinton, inned a vantz of her new book, "hard choices," everything was on the table. nothing off-limits. it's a one-hour abc news primetime special. it's airing monday at 9:00 p.m. eastern. don't want to miss that. >> a big show monday night. we've got a lot of other headlines this morning and for that, as always, we get it over to ron claiborne. good morning, everyone. we begin with a breaking news story, this developing story out of quebec, canada, where police are searching for escaped inmates, using a helicopter to get make their getaway.

8:41 am
morning for those comments he made on television, after the race when his horse failed to win the triple crown. >> steve coburn has more to say this morning and he joins us this morning. do you regret what you had to say after the race? >> not only no, but hell no, i do not regret it one bit. it's the truth. >> and you stand by those words in your convictions. but, of course, we were watching this on live television, we could see your wife behind you, she seemed a bit dismay, how does she feel about it and are you in the doghouse with her? >> no, she's still getting out of bed right now. but, i'm here at the park. you know what, i stand by what i said, simply because, there are people who train their horses to run in the kentucky derby and they have to qualify, they have to get points to run in the
8:42 am
kentucky derby, you don't have to have points to run in the preakness or the belmont, but you have to nominate your horse for the triple crown. and that means three. triple crown, three. you might compare this to a triathlon. you got to swim, bicycle and run. if you don't make it in one you're not going to do it in the other two. >> just to clarify for our viewers, essentially, your beef is that the horse that won and beat your horse last night, didn't run in one of the two races leading up to belmont. and you're saying that's basically a violation of some sort of code. do you think the rules should be changed? >> yes, i do. i mean, think of it this way, okay, it says triple crown, you nominate your horse for the triple crown, that means three, even the trophy, the triple
8:43 am
crown trophy, has three points on it. so when you earn enough points to run in the kentucky derby, those 20 horses that are starting the kentucky derby should be the only 20 allowed to run in the preakness and belmont for he triple crown. they nominate their horses for the triple crown, which means three, they hold two and come back one. you know, they haven't done anything with their horses in the triple crown, three horses in this race -- california chrome, ride on curlin and general a rod -- that ran in the first two. none of the other horses did. so, you figure it out. i mean, you ask yourself, would it be fair if i played basketball with a child in a
8:44 am
