Marie D. Jones, along with her late husband Aaron, is one of the highest profile owner/breeders in the past 40 years. Together, the Joneses enjoyed the heights of success on the racetrack, in breeding horses and in the sales ring. They bred or campaigned multiple champions, including Ashado, Speightstown, Riboletta, Lemhi Gold and Tiffany Lass. The Joneses also bred graded stakes winning horses like Drosselmeyer, Nikishka, Ida Delia, Valdez, Cajun Prince, Danebo and Western, and campaigned Forestry, Sunriver, Prime Timber, La Zanzara, and Miss Musket among many others. Marie continues to be a prominent commercial breeder.
Statement from Marie Jones:
As an owner and a breeder of thoroughbred horses, I believe that humane treatment and fair competition of our horses are the core values of the sport of thoroughbred racing. Until there is unification, the rules governing anti-doping and medication use will be unable to assure the integrity of competition or sportsmanship.
I support The Water Hay Oats Alliance in its efforts to institute drug free racing in America and to present our sport as one with integrity and a level playing field. These goals can only be accomplished through the appointment of USADA, whose administration will lead to and put in force a new world of no medication.
