Beau Galyean Enters Stallion Service Business

Equi-Stat Elite $3 Million Rider Beau Galyean is branching out with a new venture, Beau Galyean Stallion Services. His opening roster will consist of 2017 National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Open Horse of the Year Metallic Rebel and multiple limited-age Open champion Rollz Royce.   “Our phone lines are open,” Galyean said.   He’s currently building a breeding barn, office and lab. Galyean said Milt Alderman has been hired as the breeding manager, and Jocelyn Marzella will be the office manager.   He said the idea of getting into the stallion breeding business has been brewing for a long time, especially given his interactions with some great cutting horse stallions over the years.   The service will be operated out of Galyean’s training facility on Anglin Circle in Fort Worth, Texas. It will be open for the 2019 breeding season and offer shipped semen only.   “Like anything, you’re excited, you’re nervous and it’s been kind of a process,” Galyean said....

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.   Quarter Horse News By Alex Lynch 01 April 2017...
