Trainer Larry Jones was hospitalized this morning following a training accident at Delaware Park, according to Fox Hill Farm.
Jones suffered a concussion in the accident, the farm said, but is now in stable condition with good vital signs.
Fox Hill Farm, owned by Rick Porter, places many of their horses with Jones.
Jones, a trainer for more than 30 years, has won 896 races in his career from 4,685 races. He is perhaps best known for his work with Hard Spun, who ran second in the 2007 Kentucky Derby and third in that year’s Preakness; with Eight Belles, who ran second in the following year’s Kentucky Derby; with 2011 Horse of the Year Havre de Grace; and with his two Kentucky Oaks winners, Proud Spell and Believe You Can.
Jones had moved his stable back to Delaware Park, his longtime home, this year after two years at Churchill Downs.
His horses have won 18 races from 71 starts this year. In his most recent start, on Thursday at Pimlico, his horse Blue Violet won but was disqualified to fifth.
“We send him our best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery,” Fox Hill Farm said.
