Brazilian-bred Riboletta, who has won several grade I stakes this year for owners Aaron and Marie Jones, will be joined in North America later this fall by her dam and younger full sister. Aaron Jones privately purchased 11-year-old Joy Valley and the mare's 2000 filly (by Roi Normand). Following their arrival in the U.S., they will be sent to the Taylor family's Taylor Made Farm near Nicholasville, Ky. Breeding plans for Joy Valley have not been completed.
Joy Valley, a stakes winner herself, also is the dam Brazilian champion colt Super Power, who also is by Roi Normand.
