Walla Walla Whiz Reaches Sire Milestone

Walla Walla Whiz continued to add to his accomplishments in the breeding barn by ascending to NRHA Three Million Dollar Sire status, the National Reining Horse Association announced.

The son of NRHA Twelve Million Dollar Sire Topsail Whiz and out of Shiney Walla Wanda (by Shining Spark) joined 15 other stallions at the illustrious milestone. He crossed his first million-dollar milestone with the National Reining Horse Association in 2015.

And, as exciting as this accomplishment is, Walla Walla Whiz hit this milestone before his son, Americasnexttopgun, won the the 2020 National Reining Breeders Classic (NRBC) Level 4 Open with Casey Deary.

What’s more, Americasnexttopgun’s full sister, Americas Supermodel, tied for second in the Level 4 Open at the NRBC. Both are out of Americasnextgunmodel (by Colonels Smoking Gun [Gunner]).

Walla Walla Whiz’s Show Career

The 2003 stallion boasts an impressive show record that puts his NRHA lifetime earnings at more than $187,000.  Ridden by NRHA Six Million Dollar Rider Shawn Flarida, Walla Walla Whiz raked in several top-notch finishes in a short amount of time. His show career started when he was 3 years old and wrapped by 2008.
Some of the most noteworthy placings Walla Walla Whiz earned were the 2007 NRHA Derby Level 4 Open Championship, the 2006 Tulsa Reining Classic Futurity Level 4 Open Championship, and a third-place finish in the 2007 National Reining Breeders Classic (NRBC) Derby Level 4 Open.
