Rein In Cancer Filly
Red Roses In Tinseltown is by Hollywoodstinseltown and out of Ir Rosys Freckle (by Colonel San Peppy). Hollywoodstinseltown is by NRHA Six Million Dollar Sire and NRHA Hall of Fame Inductee Hollywood Dun It. Hollywoodstinseltown is a proven reining horse with NRHA Lifetime Earnings of over $185,000. This filly was generously donated by Ron McRorie and David & Bonnie Silva. All proceeds go to Rein in Cancer!
“I was inspired by Jordan and Taylor Larson’s generous hearts during the Rein In Cancer fundraiser at last year’s Futurity,” Ron McRorie, who has spearheaded the fundraiser said, in reference to the auction of the saddle that Jordan won the 2010 NRHA Futurity in. “I have had family members affected by this dreadful disease – one as young as eight years old. I truly believe that if we are in a place and are able to reach out and help families, we should.”
Partnering on the project are Dave and Bonnie Silva, who own Hollywoodstinseltown, a stand-out stallion by the legendary Hollywood Dun It. Bonnie Silva noted, “We thank Ron McRorie for contacting us and presenting us with this opportunity to help Rein in Cancer. It is people like Ron that make you believe - people who really do care unselfishly. Thank you Ron for your donation and support of Rein in Cancer.”
McRorie shared, “Rein In Cancer is a great and wonderful foundation which allows us the opportunity to reach out with a donation such as this. It supports our sport and the great people involved. I hope this can encourage other great things in the future.”
