After only three days of competition at the Tulsa Reining Classic, history is repeating itself for National Reining Horse Association Million Dollar Sire Gunners Special Nite. With successful performances by his offspring at the Tulsa event, the sorrel stallion has earned another million and unofficially surpassed the NRHA Two Million Dollar Sire mark.

By NRHA 10 Million Dollar Sire and Hall of Fame inductee Gunner and out of Mifs Doll, Gunners Special Nite was bred by Kim and Deborah Sloan. In 2010, Turnabout Farm, Inc. purchased the 2004 stallion and stood him at Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses, Inc. in Aubrey, Texas where he remains today.

Gunners Special Nite had a special reining career before moving on to even further success within the breeding shed. With NRHA Professional Tom McCutcheon and Marcy (Ver Meer) Starr at the reins, the stallion earned NRHA Lifetime Earnings (LTE) of nearly $220,000. His top finishes include:
