Top Gun Whiskey is one of four Paddys Irish Whiskey sons that we own.  We decided to give Top Gun a shot at the show ring before breeding him. It has been an interesting ride as he continued to show during 2018 as well as breed some of our mares for 2019 foals. He will continue to show in reined cowhorse and versatility ranch in 2019.

Top Gun has earned 40.5 AQHA performance points in working cow horse, heading, heeling, reining and has his AQHA Open Performance ROM. Some of his accomplishments have allowed him to be a money earner of $2,661 so far and are as follows including NRCHA earnings of $2,218.68.

By now we are very well-versed in knowledge of Paddys Irish Whiskey who stands at the 6666 Ranch in Texas. Paddys Irish Whiskey is a full brother to Grays Starlight and Gallo Del Cielo all out of Docs Starlight and by Peppy San Badger. Wow! What can we say about Peppy San Badger “Little Peppy” revolutionizing the cutting horse industry that hasn’t already been said? Paddys Irish Whiskey has NCHA earnings of $12,149 and was a multiple major aged event finalist. He has been listed on a Leading Sire list each year since he was purchased by Paddys Irish Whiskey Syndicate, he is an NRCHA All-Time Leading Sire and an Equi-Stat All-Time Leading Reined Cow Horse Sire. His foals have earned $1,547,700 and 4,820 AQHA points, 35 AQHA World/Res. World Championships including 2-time AQHA World Champion Versatility Ranch Horse, Smart Whiskey Doc.

According to the 6666s Ranch website, like his full brother Grays Starlight, Paddys Irish Whiskey has earned respect as a consistent sire of both class and high-end trainability for all walks of the reining and cowhorse worlds, siring champions in versatility ranch horse, reined cowhorse, cutting, reining, calf roping and team roping. His foals have won 35 World/Reserve Championships! Paddys Irish Whiskey was a 2008 Equi-Stat Leading Cutting Maternal Grandsire, whose daughters have produced 33 money-earners totalling $363,000 and averaging more than $11,000 in cutting, reining, reined cowhorse, ranch horse and roping events.

We acquired Top Gun from Wylie Gustafson with Cross Three Quarter Horses at Conrad, Montana. Wylie is one of the syndicate owners of Paddys Irish Whiskey. We cannot say enough good things about Wylie, his horse program and contribution to good cutting and ranch horses. We continue to have an on-going relationship with Wylie and have acquired other Paddys Irish Whiskey offspring from his program.

Since Paddys Irish Whiskey was bred and stood at the John Scott ranch in Montana, there are several of his sons in the Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota areas out of Doc O Dynamite daughters. So we are excited to add a twist into the pedigree with Top Gun’s dam Cowgun an own daughter of Playgun. Cowgun herself was never shown, but her sire Playgun was an asset to the cutting horse industry before he passed in December of 2015 due to complications of old age. Playgun's success in the show pen spanned six years with 21 aged event champion and reserve championships and more than $186,000 in earnings. He was the National Cutting Horse Association high money earning 4-year-old cutting horse in 1996. The same year he entered the breeding barn and stood to a full book of mares. Playgun’s offspring continue to impact many disciplines with earnings of more than $8 million. His prominence as a broodmare sire has become very impressive.

Here at Woroniecki Ranch Quarter Horses we feel that we can offer Paddys Irish Whiskey fans a variety of options with three different bottom sides to our Paddys sons. Top Gun Whiskey as a grandson of Playgun; TRR Paddys Texas Gin as a grandson of Tanquery Gin; and Whoop Up Whiskey and Hiline Whiskey (now deceased
but we have two of his daughters) as full brothers great-grandsons of Doc O Dynamite and Sugar Bars just once off their papers. We already experience different buyers comparing Tex and Whoop and deciding which they like so we are excited to give our buyers the chance to choose Top Gun as well. Whoop always puts a little more leg on the foals than Tex does. Top Gun’s first foal from a mare that has had foals by BOTH the other two stallions is a very solid colt without the height of Whoop or the extreme muscling of Tex. He is a very nice solid colt.

Top Gun was started under saddle and shown through his three-year-old year by Matt Schlegel with Schlegel Horse Training in North Dakota.  He then moved on to Monty Bruce with Monty Bruce Training Stable at Northwood, Iowa and Monty continued to work in collaboration with Matt. Under Monty’s hands Top Gun World Show qualified in 2016 in Reining. In 2017 as a five year old, Top Gun was ridden by Monty in the cowhorse and reining events and by Brandon Weiland with Weiland Performance Horses of Iowa in heading and heeling. Brandon got him World Show qualified in Level 2 Heading and they place 6th overall. He also World Show qualified in Level 2 and 3 Working Cowhorse.  Top Gun is currently back in North Dakota with Matt Schlegel and showed in 2018 in Reined Cowhorse Bridle Classes where his highlight was being the North Central Reined Cowhorse Association champion in Limited Open Bridle and earning his way to the 2019 Celebration of Champions in Fort Worth in February 2019. He will continue to show in 2019 in cowhorse as well as Ranch Versatility. His first four foals will be on the ground in 2019. He does not stand to the public.
