Horse: Jackpot Johnny, a 6-year-old 15.1-hand bay Thoroughbred gelding in Commerce Township, Mich.
Organization: CANTER (Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred ExRacehorses in Michigan)

Jackpot Johnny is quite the stunning, handsome bay gelding…and it’s no surprise when his grandsire is Forty Niner and his great-grandsire is Mr. Prospector! This sweet boy has been working well with his trainer and is ready for his next home. Johnny spent eight months rehabilitating from a stress fracture (no surgery required) and is now ready to get back into the ring! He would enjoy spending his days pursuing flat work, such as dressage or trail riding, with a calm, patient and experienced rider. In the stall, Johnny wears a crib collar. It’s time to open your heart up to this fabulous horse! And as the cherry on top, just look at those gorgeous and unique face markings!
