Dutch World Young Horse Championship finalist Johnny Be Goode has been sold to an anonymous buyer from the United States. 

The rising 6-year old KWPN gelding is by Dream Boy out of the Friesian cross bred mare Amazing Grace (by Tietse D x Farrington). He is bred by Trea Mulder-Dolsma, who named him Jester's Dream.

Johnny Be Goode was owned by Jan-Pieter Dalsem but registered under business partner Eugene Reesink's company. Reesink renamed the horse Johnny Be Goode. 

Marrit Reusien, who is a trainer at breeder Trea and Jos Mulder's yard De Brinkhof, first competed the bay gelding was in 2017 in young horse classes for 4-year olds in The Netherlands. In 2018 they were 13th in the Pavo Cup semi-finals in Ermelo.

In 2019 Emmelie Scholtens took over the ride on the interesting bred gelding and got selected to represent the KWPN breed at the World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, the Netherlands, where they were fifth in the preliminary test and seventh in the Finals. Three weeks later they became the reserve champions in the Pavo Cup Finals.
