NEW KENT, Va.--Jonathan Sheppard had two very promising winners in $20,000 Maiden Special Weight steeplechase races at Colonial Downs on Aug. 10, moving him into just two wins short of Jack Fisher on the Trainer, Races Won leader board.
Assistant trainer Keri Brion, who found both of these young horses in Ireland, saddled both winners for Sheppard, and both were ridden by Gerard Galligan, whose wins moved him into a tie for Rider, Races Won with Mikey Mitchell.
One of the winners, French Light, belongs to Irv Naylor, the other, Baltimore Bucko, is owned by Buttonwood Farm LLC, and both were found by Brion last December while she was at James Doyle's Baltimore Stables in Wexford, Ireland.
