NATHAN JACKSON REPORTEDLY SUES THE CELEBRATION FOR DAMAGES OVER DISCRIMINATION AND MISTREATMENT AT 2012 CELEBRATION

THETA, TN – In unconfirmed, but believed reliable reports, Billy Go Boy has learned that Nathan Jackson has filed suit against the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee charging the Celebration of maliciously denying Jackson’s flat shod “Champagne Watchout” the fair opportunity to compete in the World Grand Championship class at the 2012 Celebration.
Normally, flat shod horses are never entered in competition against the “Big Lick” stake horses, like Honors and Walk Time Charlie.

NATHAN JACKSON REPORTEDLY LOWERS THE BOOM ON THE CELEBRATION
NATHAN JACKON - OWNER OF CHAMPAGNE WATCHOUT

Jackson is reportedly asking for $10,000,000.00 punitive damages along with compensatory damages relating to his entry fees and costs of showing his horse.

Jackson alleges that, after the entry deadline on the day of the Big Stake class, the Celebration had representatives contact Trainers, owners and horses and solicit them to show back in the Championship class. Jackson charges that inducements were made to these possible competitors by waiving the hefty entrance fees necessary to show.
Jackson paid $225.00 three weeks ahead of time to enter his horse for the first Saturday night. He paid $2,515.00 to enter his horse for Class #177, World Grand Championship class. Jackson charges by the 12:00 p.m. Noon entry deadline on the day of the show, only SIX horses had paid the fees to enter the class. Nathan Jackson charges that the Celebration, after the 12 Noon deadline, operating through its representatives went out and recruited five more horses to enter the Big Stake Championship Class, preventing Champagne Watchout from winning a ribbon, possibly earning prize money and preventing the horse from being in the history books. Jackson says if the Celebration had played by the rules and not done what he alleges, that Champagne Watchout would have won a ribbon in the Championship class.

Approximately, ten years ago Nathan Jackson was embroiled in a controversy with the Celebration over being able to enter his flat shod Champagne Watchout in the Big Stake. After much wrangling during that time, Champagne Watchout was allowed to show.

Nephew Eugene’s friend Randolph from Theta who graduated from Vanderbilt College Law School is going to try and get a copy of the “reported” lawsuit and post it here.

  1. Way to go Nathaniel Jackson. Wishing you all the best and Champagne Watchout too!

  2. What a can of worms this will open,and how many more NEWS Reporters can Shelbyville handle.Now hold on folks maybe some money will come to the town.if the U S District Court of the Eastern District of Tn.is in Shelbyville.

    go for it NJ and CWO

  3. Why is he suddenly deciding to sue now? hmmm. Seems to me that, that should of happened last year after that celebration.

    • Exactly, this suit doesn’t stand a chance. Just trying to be a nuisance as usual. At least his lawyer will get to make some money off of it.

      • AQHA suffered a similar type lawsuit by a person who wanted to show his horse with the bitless bridle. He claimed that AQHA REFUSED to offer classes so he could prove his horses ability therefore they were also denying him an opportunity to make money from his Quarter Horses

        He lost…I think he also had to pay all court costs.

  4. Pingback: More Celebration

  5. Can this man do nothing but try to put himself in the spotlight. He will be laughed out of court and just another set back to the sound horse fight.

  6. this is the funniest thing I have read all day.. Jackson trying to get another 5 min.. he better have some good proof which im sure he doesnt

  7. Funny, everyone seems to know Nate and none of his “distractors.”

    You go Nate! This is a provable, actionable case.

  8. you mean to tell me them lickers is the only ones who can throw out threats of lawsuits?. You say something about their horse being sore or how much of an idiot they are and they will throw a threat so fast, your head will spin around.

    Why not, it’s his business anyway.

  9. he also filed it as not having a lawyer and im to broke to hire one and need a court appointed one.. .This will go no where and I hope he is banned from the celebration grounds.

  10. Like him, hate him, dismiss him.

    The fact remains that if his accusation is true (and we all suspect it is), then it’s just one more example of how shoddy and false this entire sore horse industry really is.
