Plenty of Light, winning the Three Chimneys Spinster Stakes.
Aaron and Marie Jones' Plenty of Light has been retired from racing with a record of five wins from seven races and earnings of $510,420. The 4-year-old daughter of Colony Light arrived at Taylor Made Farm near Nicholasville, Ky., about 10 days ago. Plans call for her to be bred to Forestry, who was a grade I winner for the Joneses and stands at Taylor Made.
Plenty of Light scored her biggest win in the Three Chimneys Spinster Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland last October over subsequent Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I) winner Spain. She spent the winter at Taylor Made because of a leg problem and was returned to trainer Elliott Walden around March. She was close to a breeze before it was decided to retire her.
Bred in Florida by Jim and Sheila DiMare's J.D. Farm, Plenty of Light made her first four starts for Joseph Balsamo and her remaining starts for the Joneses, who acquired her privately last year. Plenty of Light, who was produced from the Northrop mare Iceycindy, also sports a track-record win in the OBS Championship Stakes and placings in the Gazelle Handicap (gr. I) and Duchess Stakes (Can-III).
