The next edition of the live podcast Talkin’ Horses with The Blood-Horse.com will feature trainer Larry Jones, who conditioned Havre de Grace to a Horse of the Year title in 2011. The podcast will air live at 2 p.m. EDT Tuesday, April 17, on BloodHorse.com/TalkinHorses.
A native of Hopkinsville, Ky., 55-year-old Jones was a top conditioner on the Midwest circuit when he began achieving success on the Triple Crown Trail and in major races on the East Coast. Assisted by his wife, Cindy, Jones has been represented by such prominent horses as Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner Proud Spell; 2007 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) runner-up Hard Spun , ill-fated 2008 Derby runner-up Eight Belles, and grade I winners Island Sand, Wildcat Bettie B, and No Such Word.
In addition to Jones, the Talkin’ Horses podcast will feature Tom LaMarra, news editor at The Blood-Horse magazine and co-host of BloodHorse.com’s “That Handicapping Show.” He will recap and preview major stakes races, including Derby preps.
