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.

Moms Stylish Player is by Lizzys Gotta Player out of Moms Stylish Babe and owned by Robert Tregemba of Castle Rock, Co.

Kenny, who also won the Open Super Stakes Derby on the same horse, told Simone Cobb it was the greatest ride of his life!

Gary won the Derby Championship at the same event last year on Reyzin The Cash, his first major title in the Will Rogers.

Gary told CHTO’s Simone Cobb he had a lot of fun showing his stud, which has now surpassed $200,000 in winnings.

April 3rd, 2016 by CHTO

Californian cutters were celebrating last night after Morgan Cromer’s victory in the 2016 NCHA Super Stakes Open Classic final at Fort Worth, Tx.

Morgan rode Maid of Metal and marked a 223 after being second out in the first herd.

Overjoyed with her win, it was Morgan’s first major title in the famed Will Rogers Coliseum, where she picked up almost $65,000 for the win.

Maid of Metal, a 5-yr-old by Metallic Cat, is owned by Judy Siebel, (also from California) and has now won more than $100,000.

Morgan, who recently earned the nickname, California Chrome, had two other horses make it to the finals, Little Dirty Deeds and TF High Chex CD, with her total earnings for the night coming to approximately $82,000.

She told CHTO’s Simone Cobb she was climbing the fence with nerves when watching the rest of the competitors, especially when John Mitchell put in a strong performance 3rd from last on CR Tuff Lucy.

John Mitchell and CR Tuff Lucy placed second just behind Morgan with a 222.5, while James Payne came in third on Cherry Peppers, scoring 220.5.

In just three months this year, Morgan’s earnings have totaled around $180,000. She says she plans to continue that momentum.

It was a full field of 29 competitors, with total prize money just shy of $465,000. The winner pocketed an extra $25,000 thanks to sponsor Alvin Fults, who owns the sire Metallic Cat. Both final winners of the Super Stakes thus far have been by Metallic Cat.
