Larry Jones Severely Injured in Delaware Park Spill
59-year-old Larry Jones, trainer of 2011 Horse of the Year Havre de Grace (right), suffered severe injuries after being thrown from his horse following a workout early this morning at Delaware Park. Jones, who exercises his own horses every day, was unseated when the 2-year-old he was riding suddenly reared. He was rushed to the intensive care unit of Christiana Hospital, where he was diagnosed with two fractured ribs, a bruised lung, and bleeding of the brain
According to assistant trainer Deidre Jackson, he does not require surgery, and “…as long as it doesn’t get any worse, it looks like he’s going to be okay.”
And that’s why we don’t exercise our own babies, folks.
