GAINESVILLE, TEXAS—Sept. 29, 2023—Texas-based 70 Ranch Performance Horses has acquired SR Industry Titan, the same day Brittany Tonozzi rode the stallion to surpass the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association’s regular-season earnings record in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at the Cinch Governor’s Cup.

Tonozzi clocked a 13.95 on the 2013 son of Firewaterontherocks out of the great NFR mare Mulberry Canyon Moon by Marthas Six Moons to split the Round 1 win in the Denny Sanford Center, earning $8,750—putting her season earnings at a massive $258,313.
Tonozzi has ridden SR Industry Titan for the last two months of the ProRodeo season, skyrocketing his career earnings to over $300,000 in the AQHA’s QData database and setting arena records at rodeos like Ellensburg, Washington, and Stephenville, Texas, along the way. Ohio’s Troy Crumrine trained and campaigned SR Industry Titan for former owners Nick Wylie of WJR Trucking, and the horse placed in multiple go-rounds at the 2020 NFR in Arlington, Texas, with Wenda Johnson.
“Our goal is to raise exceptional livestock and horseflesh,” 70 Ranch Manager Donald Ham said. “We have a set of mares’ we’re exceptionally proud of—including Sand In My Socks who SteviHillman just won Pendleton that she’ll take to this year’s NFR—and bringing SR Industry Titan in is just the next step.”
SR Industry Titan will join fellow standout 70 Ranch stallions like Feel The Sting (Dash Ta Fame x Stingray, who qualified for the 2020 NFR with Ryann Pedone) and Metallic Mallice (the homozygous roan Metallic Cat son out of High Boon by Mecom Blue), and he’ll be enrolled as a Pink Buckle sire for 2024.
“We have the 70 Ranch Incentive that will pay an extra $100,000 to the offspring of one of our stallions in the Open at the Pink Buckle in the average,” Ham added. “We’ll give $70,000 to the fastest time run by a horse by one of our stallions and $30,000 to second fastest.”
Tonozzi will continue to campaign SR Industry Titan into 2024 for 70 Ranch, while the ranch will promote the stud as a producer. Ham’s goal is to give the horse the best chance to fulfill his potential as a sire and competitor.
