Jones Eyes HOY for Havre De Grace

Larry Jones has been fortunate enough to train some very talented fillies—Eight Belles, Island Sand, Proud Spell, and Wildcat Bettie B are among them. But according to Jones, Havre de Grace might not just be the most talented, she could be the best horse—male or female—he’s ever had in his barn.

“It’s very possible that she is the best,” Jones said. “Hard Spun   was very special and had he been born in a different year I think he would have been even more of a star. And Eight Belles was special too. Who knows what she could have been. But this mare, she might be better than any of them. We won’t know until it’s finished, but we’re looking forward to seeing where she takes us.”

Owned by Rick Porter’s Fox Hill Farms, Havre de Grace’s next stop will be in the $150,000 Obeah Stakes (gr. III) June 11 at Delaware Park where she will face four challengers. The 1 1/8-mile test is the local prep for the $750,000 Delaware Handicap (gr. II) on July 16. The 4-year-old daughter of Saint Liam drew post 3 and will be ridden by Gabriel Saez. Along with Sweet N Sour Nina, she will carry top weight of 123 pounds.

Most talented horse in America hands down, I think she will breeze on Saturday and trounce the field in the Delaware Oaks, and then bring on the boys. She's that good.
