Metallic Rebel is having a year for the books. He just keeps racking up titles, and he added another championship to his résumé when he and Equi-Stat Elite $2 Million Rider claimed the Stakes Open Championship at the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association (PCCHA)/Holy Cow Performance Horses Futurity.
The title was worth $9,000, which brings Metallic Rebel (Metallic Cat x Sweet Abra x Abrakadabracre) to lifetime earnings of more than $175,000. This was the duo’s fourth championship of 2016 so far. Their other wins include the 4-Year-Old Open Championship at The Ike Derby and Classic, the PCCHA Core Balance Derby Open Championship and the 4-Year-Old Open title at the West Texas Futurity.
The stallion, who was bred by Alvin and Becky Fults and is owned by Thomas Guinn, is currently sitting third in the National Cutting Horse Association Open Horse of the Year standings. He had 410 points toward the title when he arrived in Las Vegas.
