In less than one year after becoming a National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Seven Million Dollar Sire, NRHA Hall of Fame Inductee Gunner (AQHA Colonels Smoking Gun, APHA Colonels Smokingun) has reached a new milestone. Now an Eight Million Dollar Sire, he joins the ranks alongside Topsail Whiz and Wimpys Little Step.

The 1993 stallion by Colonelfourfreckle and out of Katie Gun by John Gun was bred by Eric Storey of Henagar, Alabama. A stand out in in the show pen, Gunner was the 1996 NRHA Futurity Reserve Champion with NRHA Hall of Famer Clint Haverty at the reins. The pair went on to earn the 1998 National Reining Breeders Classic (NRBC) Reserve Champion title. With Bryant Pace guiding him, Gunner earned the 2001 United States Equestrian Team (USET) Festival of Champions Reining championship in Gladstone, New Jersey. Gunner’s NRHA Lifetime Earnings total more than $173,700.

With a lucrative career in the show pen, Gunner has had an equally successful breeding career, having sired numerous NRHA Futurity and Derby finalists and champions in both the open and non pro divisions which include: 2012 NRHA Open Futurity Champion Americasnextgunmodel, 2012 NRHA Open Futurity Reserve Champion Gunners Tinseltown, and 2012 NRHA Non Pro Co-champion Customized Gunner. Gunner also sired Gunners Special Nite, winner of the individual Gold medal at the 2010 FEI Alltech®World Equestrian Games.

Among Gunner’s highest money-earners are:

  • Tinker With Guns
  • Gunners Tinseltown
  • Americasnextgunmodel
  • Gunners Special Nite
  • Gunnatrashya

In total Gunner’s progeny have earned $8,046,378
