Foaling Date: 6-3-1997

Jackpot was foaled at JPF in 1997—he was Swirl’s first colt. He got his barn name when Brent went out early one morning to see if Swirl had foaled. He found the foaling stall empty. There was evidence in the stall that the foal had been born and the side door was missing. Brent went looking out in the tall grass and found Swirl standing over an extremely gorgeous colt. He said his first thought was, “Jackpot!” like we’d won a big one! Jackpot must have rolled under the sliding door and Swirl took it down to be with him. That did teach me to secure the sliding door better at the bottom.
Jackpot has been a superstar. I love to ride him and he will be doing advanced lessons in 2010. He is very talented, balanced and knows a lot.
