About Larry Jones:
A native of Hopkinsville, Ky., Larry Jones was a commercial farmer before becoming a Thoroughbred owner in 1980 and obtained his trainer's license in 1982. He recorded his first stakes win with Capt. Bold at Ellis Park.

From that point forward, Jones divided his time between the tracks in Kentucky and Arkansas' Oaklawn Park in the winter until 2006, when he decided to move his summer operation to Delaware Park. He now splits his stable in the winter between Oaklawn and Fair Grounds in New Orleans.

Larry and his wife Cindy work together at the barn and have enjoyed remarkable success since 2002, when he started his first horse in the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships. He has become widely regarded after his victories with grade 1 winners Island Sand and Wildcat Bettie B and graded stakes winners Ruby's Reception, Josh's Madelyn and Hello Liberty, giving him a reputation of having special talent for training fillies.

At Delaware Park, Jones met Rick Porter, for whom he now trains. For Porter, Jones trained the last two horses to finish second in the Kentucky Derby: Hard Spun in 2007 and Eight Belles in 2008, as well as current Kentucky Derby hopefuls Friesan Fire and Old Fashioned. He also trains the 2008 3-year-old champion filly Proud Spell, who won the Kentucky Oaks, for former Kentucky governor Brereton C. Jones (no relation).
