5xCH/3xRU FC CHANCEY JACKPOT LOTTO nominated by Jessica Carlson
Chance was a true all age dog competing on the All Age Championship circuit. The measure of a truly great dog is where he completed and his competition. A few of the top dogs competing (at that time) were 2X NFC Diamond Hill Dan HOF; NFC Shambo’s Dark Shadow, NFC/2X NAFC Just Call Me Roy, NAFC Tequila Jack II, and Smarteyes Joker to mention a few. Chance placed in 13 States including AL, GA, NC, VA, KY, TN, IA, MO, NE, OK, KS, SD, and IL.
>From the start at 2 years old, Chance was taking the blue in hour stakes! While compiling his 5 Championship wins and 3 Championship Runner-ups in 18 hour placements, Chance made it into the top 25 dogs competing for Purina Award points 4 years in a row and within the top 10 dogs in his last two years. It takes an incredible dog to win the Free for All or the US Open. Chance took the blue at the Free for All in 2004 and 2005. Chances’ remaining Championships included the 2006 ABC Pheasant, 2007 Deep South Amateur and 2007 Southern Open Brittany; Runner-up titles from the 2006 Southern Open, 2006 Prairie State and the 2007 ABC Chicken Classic. Chance came into is own and became consistent during the spring of 2006, placing in 10 hours stakes before his untimely tragic death in October of 2007 during the Holman Classic.

I support the nomination of Chancey Jackpot Lotto to the Brittany FT Hall of Fame. Jessica said it best: The measure of a truly great dog is where he competed and his competition. I was fortunate enough to witness some of Chance's great performances in places where only the true all age dogs can compete, against some of the best dogs in recent history. Chance's tragic death kept him from attaining more Championship titles and offspring. Let's not let that tragedy keep him from this great honor.
