Juan In A Million has taken a shine to the Augusta Futurity show.
The Spots Hot gelding and owner Jordan Vaughn won a title at the North Georgia show for the second year in a row on Thursday, Jan. 23, when they took The 41 Amateur over a field in the James Brown Arena.
Vaughn, of Forsyth, Georgia, and the 2013 Quarter Horse marked a winning 222. They banked $2,429 in prize money. Last year, they won the 5/6-Year-Old Amateur at the show.
“He’s just a good horse,” said Vaughn, who was a teen when he first showed in Augusta in Youth classes. “I mean, everywhere we’ve gone he’s been good for me. I’ve won a lot of stuff on him and he’s just one you can go call on.”
In addition to Juan In A Million’s win at last year’s Augusta Futurity, the horse and Vaughn teamed up to take the Classic Non-Pro Championship at the 2018 All-American Quarter Horse Congress. They also won the Classic Amateur and Mid-Level Amateur titles at last year’s Southern Cutting Futurity.
Juan In A Million’s nearly $80,000 in lifetime earnings makes him the leading earner of his dam, Oh Miss Peacock (by High Brow Cat). He was bred by Patrick M. and Laura Collins, of Lincoln, Illinois.
