Gallop welcomes double-registered AQHA/APHA World Champion Metallic Cattack. Tictac (as he is affectionately called) is a 2015, 14.3HH double registered AQHA/APHA red roan stallion by legendary stallion Metallic Cat. His dam is one of the greatest daughters of CD Olena the industry has ever seen, Quiolena! She has produced over $829,000, with over 85% of her foals over four years old being NCHA earners!
Metallic Cattack holds Lifetime Earnings of $30,752, NCHA/Equi-Status, and is a multiple Open & Non-Pro Aged Event Finalist. He was sent to Gary Wells to campaign in the tie-down roping in 2020. He took to it exceptionally well and ended up being the 2020 APHA World Champion Tie-Down Horse with less than four months of training! From there, it was on to Oklahoma, where he captured the Bronze at the AQHA World Show in the Junior Tie Down Roping! Tictac continued being shown in 2021 under the guidance of Gary Wells and Cody McCartney. His performance record includes 2018 Semi-Finalist in NCHA Open Futurity, the 2019 Breeders Invitational Derby Sale Incentive Non-Pro Co-Reserve Champion, money-earner in the Breeders Invitational Non-Pro Derby, and 6th in the Non-Pro Cutting Non-Pro Derby. In 2020 he was the APHA World Show Judge All-Age Open Tie-Down Roping Champion, took a Bronze at the AQHA World Show in the Tie-Down Roping, an additional Bronze at the AQHA World Show in the Junior Tie-Down Roping Jackpot, and placed 5th at the AQHA World Show in Junior Tie-Down Roping in (L2) Open.
Watching Metallic Cattack quietly, waiting for a calf to be released, then running to it with speed and position in working with his rider to rope it... is pure perfection. He's natural in his stops, quiet in the box, and works the end of the rope well, keeping the slack out but not dragging the calf. Many don't understand that Tie-down Roping requires an intelligent horse that can make decisions without being signaled by the rider, whose hands are busy, and that's just what Metallic Cattack can do!
His first foals arrived in 2021 and have met his breeder's expectations. His foals are eligible for Ruby Buckle, Riata Buckle, Royal Crown, and NRCHA Stallion Stakes. Metallic Cattack is Genetic Tested: 5-panel N/N. His color testing is Red Factor: ee, Agouti: Aa, Roan Zygosity: Rnrn, and frame Overo: N/N. He has had a successful career as both a cutting and rope horse. His size, pedigree, and incredible athletic ability will complement various mares. Take the opportunity to make a great investment in your future!
