Gunners Tinseltown, known as “Gunny,” is a 2009 Sorrel Stallion bred and owned by Silva Reining Horses. During his show career Gunners Tinseltown earned $307,328 and won many prestigious championship titles, including the the 2012 NRHA Open Futurity Reserve Champion. (Please scroll down on this page for a detailed account of his show career by year.)

Gunny is sired by the NRHA and AQHA Hall of Fame sire Colonels Smoking Gun, known as “Gunner.” Gunner was by Colonelfourfreckle and out of Katie Gun. During his lifetime, Gunner earned more than $173,000, and his offspring have accumulated more than $7 million in NRHA earnings! Gunner was laid to rest in July of 2013. Gunners Tinseltown is one of the top-earning sons of the legendary sire, Gunner.

Gunners Tinseltown’s Dam, Miss Tinseltown, had a standout show career of her own. She was the first mare in NRHA history to score in the above 230, winning the 1999 NRBC with an amazing score of 233.5! In June of 2014, Miss Tinseltown was crowned as NRHA’s all-time leading dam. As of November of 2016, her 11 foals had total earnings of $741,156 for an average of $67,377 each.

Gunners Tinseltown is standing to the public at McQuay Stables. We are excited to say that Gunners Tinseltown is generating a great deal of interest and attracting some of the best mares in the industry. His first foals arrived in 2015 and are looking great!
