BALTIMORE, Md.--Keri Brion saddled four winners during the past week, including Caroline Krystyna at Pimlico on Black Eyed Susan Day, May 10.
Sterbenz Racing's Caroline Krystyna won a $58,800, 5 furlong Maiden Special weight turf race for 3-, 4- and 5-year-old fillies and mares by 2 1/4 lengths.
"It's been great," said Brion."Winning a race on Black Eyed Susan Day was a big push. I've gotten a lot of calls from that."
"Caroline's owner came from an open house that I had last February," said Brion. "He thought she'd be a turf horse, so he sent her to me. She's out of an Augustin Stable's mare that I used to gallop for Jonathan Sheppard. She's going to go to a stakes at Laurel next month."
Blue Streak Racing's Anoint won a $32,000, 1 mile Allowance race at Presque Isle by a neck on May 24.
Anoint was bred by Jonathan Sheppard, for whom Brion was assistant trainer before going out on her own.
"She ran a career best," said Brion. "She ran huge. She's not really a dirt horse, but she loves the tapeta track at Presque Isle."
