One on One with Keri Brion

July 31, 2023

Up and coming trainer Keri Brion joins us in the rogues’ gallery for a One on One with Jonathan Stettin.

Keri liked her long shot first time starter, and she might just like another one coming up soon! You’ll have to watch! It’s worth it.

Keri has had quite the career already and learned her craft from one of the best, Jonathan Shepherd who knew how to win at Saratoga. Learn how Keri got into the game, won steeplechase races in Ireland, trained an Eclipse Award winner, The Mean Queen (we love the name) and her goals for the future. Keri is also only second trainer to win over one million dollars in a season on the National Steeplechase Association circuit.

Now for the controversy. As we all know Saratoga has been plagued with inquiries resulting in what most feel are inconsistent ruling, with no transparency or explanations. Keri was in the middle of one of these controversies and she talks with Jon quite frankly about what it is like from a trainers perspective. Do the stewards communicate with the trainer? Is the decision explained? How does it affect the horses next start?

There is a lot to unpack in addition to the rocket ride up the ladder for Keri. They talk the Jim Dandy and Forte and what they felt the “real issue” was which we are not sure was even looked at. Don’t miss the chance to get to know this rising star of a trainer and get an inside look at inquiries from a trainer. The ghost of Allemeuse just might be galloping at Saratoga.
