At the risk of being redundant, Keri Brion again. Brion, racehorse trainer, has built up quite the resume on our site. Some highlights:
After her horse Baltimore Bucko was killed at Belmont last September, Brion had this to say: “[I]t was unfortunately just…one of those things. It was tough, but he did go out doing what he loved to do.”
In July, in the same race at Saratoga, Brion had one horse “vanned off in distress” and another finish “bleeding.” She called the latter “unfortunate” (that word again).
Earlier this month, Brion saw humor in suffering.
On Aug 15, her horse Peat Moss fell going over a jump at Colonial. Having survived that, Brion brought Peat back just one week later: second-to-last, 18 lengths behind.
And now to this week. At Colonial Monday, Grey Illusions was ambulanced away after the 10th. No word yet on the 4-year-old’s fate. But it’s bad regardless – he’s either dead or he will continue to suffer under the yoke of a truly despicable person.
