Metallic Rebel Dominates PCCHA Derby Open

Quater Horse News
The schedule was packed on Saturday, June 18, at the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association (PCCHA) Core Balance Derby and Classic/Challenge, and the competition was tough. Metallic Rebel bested a field of 20 horses with Equi-Stat Elite $2 Million Rider Beau Galyean in the saddle. Their score of 225.5 was worth a check for $18,000.

The Alvin and Becky Fults-bred stallion (Metallic Cat x Sweet Abra x Abrakadabracre), who is owned by Thomas Guinn, of Philadelphia, Mississippi, surpassed $100,000 with this win. The duo had not been able to clinch a victory since they topped the Derby Open at The Ike Derby and Classic in February, so Galyean was excited about their success in Las Vegas.

“We were able to put it all together today, and that’s been really tough to do with this horse,” Galyean said after his run.

The Daily Advertiser – Smith scores a lucrative hat-trick

Trent Smith and Moore Metal wowed the crowd with an amazing 226 point run to claim the victory and become the 2016 Bayer & Shadow Trailers NCHA Australia Open Futurity Champions at Tamworth last week.

It capped off a big week for the Young horseman, who also took out the SDP Buffalo Ranch Open Derby Finals on Metallic CD and the Longyard Hotel Limited Open Futurity Championship on Metallic Bling.

Smith completed the trifecta of three championship events, all on horses sired by Metallic Cat.

The three wins and other multiple finalists all added up to a payday worth over $100,000 including the guaranteed $75,000 for winning the Open Futurity.
