It was a sweet victory for Beau Galyean, after realizing his goal of winning a second championship in the famed Will Rogers at the 2017 Super Stakes Classic Open Final.
Beau thrilled the crowd aboard Metallic Rebel, marking a 229 to dominate the event by 5 points.
Metallic Rebel is a stallion by Metallic Cat, another successful sire championed by Beau. Metallic Rebel is owned by Thomas Guinn and now won more than $240,000. This win takes Beau’s lifetime earnings to more than $2.9-million.
Beau was the 2008 Futurity winner, the first time he won a buckle at a Triple Crown event.
Beau told CHTO’s Simone Cobb that he had a good feeling coming into the final.
John Mitchell claimed the Reserve buckle on CR Tuff Lucy with a 224 and Wes Galyean and Button Down Supercat picked up third just two points behind.
