Metallic Rebel Rules Super Stakes Classic Open

Metallic Rebel makes his presence known when he steps into the cutting pen, and his showing with Equi-Stat Elite $3 Million Rider Beau Galyean at the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Super Stakes was a familiar scene.

 

The Classic Open brought 26 of the cutting industry’s top athletes to the Will Rogers Coliseum, but Metallic Rebel edged out those competitors by 5 points when he marked a huge 229 for owner Thomas Guinn.

 

“We’ve had some big scores, and the horse is very capable of that,” Galyean said. “He does a good job as long as I set him up and allow him to show off his athletic ability.”

 

Their killer run earned Galyean and the Alivin and Becky Fults-bred stallion a hefty paycheck of $28,608. That pushed 5-year-old Metallic Rebel (Metallic Cat x Sweet Abra x Abrakadabracre) to lifetime earnings of $255,460.
