Calgary Stampede Day 1 Pool B Results

Calgary, AB – Here we are, Day one of Pool B of the Lake Calgary Stampede.

First I would like for everyone to take a moment to tip their hats to the great Winston Bruce whom we lost last night to a battle with pneumonia. He was the driving force behind the Born to Buck program with the Calgary Stampede, and was an outstanding saddle bronc rider. Winston won the Canadian Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association title in 1957 and 1958, 1959 Calgary Stampede title, the Cheyenne Frontier Days in 1959, won the PRCA bronc riding world title in 1961 and ten times qualified for the National Finals Rodeo. He was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 1989. Heaven is having the best rodeo this year. Rest easy Winston.

Matt Shizowa won the tie-down roping this afternoon with a 7.3. Half of the field received a no time including all of the Canadian contestants.

Bray Armes won the steer wrestling/water skiing with a 3.7. Canadian Cody Cassidy split a fourth pace cheque with Trevor Knowles with a 4.4.

Strong start for the bareback riders, seeing 80’s across the board, plus Peebles 90.5 ride on Yipee Kibitz. Canadian Orin Larsen split a 2/3rd place cheque with Kaycee Feild with an 87 point ride aboard Sacred Nation.

In the saddle bronc riding, we are waiting for one more re-ride which will happen tomorrow afternoon as they ran out of re-ride stock. Jacobs Crawley unofficially wins day one of pool B with an 86.5 point ride.

In the barrel racing we saw two of our legendary barrel horses make a comeback in the mud! Lisa Lockart won the round on Louie with a 17.68, and Sherry Cervi was second on Stingray with a 17.840 proving the mud at Calgary is nothing to be scared of! Our Canadian Champ Nancy Csabay ran a 18.050 splitting 3/4th with Amberleigh Moore.

JB Mauney won the bull riding this afternoon on Bomb Shell for 88 points, while Sage Kimzey wasn’t far behind with 86 points on Damn Straight. Brennon Eldred on Keslers Excessive Force for 81 points was the only other ride made, the rest of the field was bucked off.

Clay Elliot lit up Quittin Time for 86.50 points this afternoon, just a half point ahead of Taos Muncy and Layton Green who split second place. Jim Berry made it for 8 on Lady Gaga for 83.50 and a fifth place cheque.

In the barrel racing, it was Nellie Miller who ran a 17.300, the fastest time of rodeo thus far. Katie Garthwaite made a horse change today, riding Rimes Girl with a time of 17.610 placing 6th, just out of the money. Kirsty White had a wicked first barrel and ended up with a nice third place cheque for her time of 17.440. White is currently splitting 3/4th with Kimmie Wall, each having $9,500 won. Emily Miller is leading the standings with $13,500 banked after three runs.

OUTSTANDING bull fighting by Brett Monea, Scott Wade, and Jesse Byrne this afternoon, Monea saving Jess Lockwood & Tim Lipsett in back to back rides. Great to see such a strong comeback after Brett missed Calgary last year due to injury.

Lockwood was stepped on by Gambler, and was looking quite sore. Dakota Butter has doctored out for the second day in a row after an injury on day one. Garrett Smith rode Heavens Basement for 89 points and the $5,500 go round win!

Calgary Stampede Day 1 Pool A Results

Calgary, Ab – A hot and sunny day kicked off the Calgary Stampede this year. Most are excited about it but barrel racer Jackie Ganter has her fingers crossed that last years monsoon conditions come back, as her buckskin stud Jet is a solid mudder.

Canadians who topped the board include the Cochrane cowboy, Tanner Milan won the steer wrestling with a 4.0 this afternoon. Layton Green of Meeting Creek had a beauty of a spur ride on Stampede Warrior for 91.50, a solid way to start at Stampede. Nanton’s Clay Elliot finished second with an 87 point ride on Umber Bubbles. Jake Vold also finished second with 87 points on Wild Child, while Ky Marshall was an 86 on Must Have

Jordan Hansen was the lone Canadian bull rider to get on the score board with 72 points on Pink Panther. Dakota Buttar took a bit of a beating getting stepped on by Wyoming Storm.

Each go-round pays $5,500, $4,500, $3,500, $2,500, & $1,500 for first through fifth placings.

This year the Calgary Stampede has added ground to the arena to make for safer footing for the sake of our animal and human athletes. This is especially exciting for our barrel racers. The times showed the ground to be much better, with Kimmie Wall and Foxy running a fast 17.350! When is the last time we saw times that fast in that arena? Canadian Kirsty White pulled a third place cheque aboard Racy, while Katie Garthwaite had a slip on second. Tomorrow is a new day to chase after that $100,000 cheque!

2016 Calgary Stampede Champion Not Returning

Calgary, AB- World Champion & 2016 Calgary Stampede barrel racing champion Mary Burger will not be competing in the 2017 Calgary Stampede.

Burger’s buckskin gelding Mo is not able to compete, and she was unable to find a replacement suitable for the job, so she is vetting out, allowing someone else have a shot the $100,000 cheque.

In this situation, Stampede ground rules state that the next person on the list of current world standings is invited. Nellie Miller will be here tomorrow for Pool A with Rafter W Minnie Reba aka. Sister.

In the steer wrestling Luke Branquinho will be replaced with Trevor Knowles.

Ponoka Stampede Short Go 2017

After six performances and 90 barrel racers have wrapped three, we have our top twelve contestants for the 2017 Ponoka Stampede short go, happening tomorrow afternoon.

Taylor Manning of Edson, Alberta will be the youngest competitor at just 13 years old.

Manning and her horse Matlock ran a 17.837 in the long go, just two tenths behind the Arizona cowgirl, Sherry Cervi who won with a 17.610.

“It was smooth and fast,” Taylor recalled of her smokin’ run, “He (Matlock) made me proud working really hard to get us where we are.” she said.

When asked about the short go, she had a mixture of emotions. “I feel really excited and nervous.” she admitted.


The playing field is split 50/50 with half the ladies running in the short go calling Canada home, the other half from the United States, all with one thing in mind; winning the short go and the title of Ponoka Stampede Ladies Barrel Racing Champion.

1. Sherry Cervi, 17.610 seconds, $4703.61; 2. Callahan Crossley, 17.675, $3998.07; 3. Kirsty White, 17.701, $3292.52; 4. Tillar Murray, 17.748, $2822.17; 5. Cathy Grant, 17.754, $2351.81; 6.

Pre Cowboy Christmas Riches

* Courtesy of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association

Airdrie, ALTA – June 27, 2017 – “Things tend to go better when I actually enter the rodeo.” Steer wrestler Scott Guenthner chuckled ruefully as he thought back to his Wainwright Stampede (non) experience for 2016.

And he was right—this year the Consort cowboy did enter the rodeo and things went much better.

Guenthner followed up a winning 4.0 second run at High River’s Guy Weadick Days ($1989) with a strong three head performance at Wainwright. The three time CFR qualifier was third in the first go round, eighth in the second round, split 2/3 in the short go and wound up second in the average (13.7 seconds on three, behind only Coleman Kohorst’s 13.3). The result was a tidy $5077 haul out of Wainwright and a $7066 weekend overall.

The payday(s) virtually guarantee Guenthner another trip to Edmonton in November for the CFR; he was already leading the Canadian standings with $9617 won heading into the weekend, and will provide a handy boost up the standings south of the 49th parallel as well. The likable 26 year-old bulldogger was sitting 13th in the PRCA standings and hoped the productive weekend would see him claw his way back into the top ten in the world.

Guenthner pointed to mental preparation as the key to his 2017 success to date. “I’m trying to use my head, to make consistent, solid runs and put everything else out of my mind. Last year I got off to a pretty good start but between the middle of July and the end of August, I broke barriers to cost myself $30,000.”

The new game plan – that sees Guenthner have a target of $2000 in earnings every weekend – has been working well as he and Smoke (the Milans’ horse) have been lighting it up both in Canada and the US with a consistency that speaks to the confidence and focus that have become the Guenthner trademarks.

“I know there will be weekends when I don’t hit that $2000 but there will be some, like this one, where I can win more than that.”

Yeah, actually quite a lot more than that on this weekend. And that sets the stage for the next phase of Guenthner’s season. “I won’t be home for the next two months,” the second generation cowboy admitted. “I’m pushing to get to Salt Lake City (one million dollar gold medal rodeo) in July and I need to be in the top ten to get there. It’s tough… there’s so many good guys, both up here and down south but I know it’s there if I just keep doing what I do.”

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It might be the comeback story of the year. For Roosevelt, Utah roper, Rhen Richard, it looked like a lost season. Losing the thumb on his roping hand, having it re-attached but with accompanying numbness and missing four months during the recovery process seemed to signal the end – at least in the tie down roping – for 2017. But a casual practice session not long before Grande Prairie changed things. “It didn’t feel too bad so I decided to throw my name in there for Grande Prairie and Leduc and see what happened.”

While it didn’t go well at the northern Alberta rodeo, Richard split bottom hole at Leduc, then won Rocky Mountain House a week later, setting the stage for Wainwright, the first Pro Tour Rodeo stop of the season. Richard won third in the second go round, split the short go (with Russell Cardoza) with a 9.1 second run and captured the average with his 28.8 second total on three runs, to top out at just over $6000 and vault into contention for a return trip the CFR in November.

“I’m having a little trouble getting my slack,” Richard confessed. “It’s not as clean as I’d like it to be and I struggle a little with getting the (piggin) string out of my mouth. But other than that, it actually feels pretty good.”

While the 28 year-old has been riding a new horse through the spring and early summer (six year-old Patron), he returned to an old friend – Little Joe – for Wainwright. The combination clicked once again and the race for a CFR berth was on for Richard, now comfortably in the top ten in Canada.

And there’s more reason for optimism from the Richard camp as he has teamed up with eight time world champion Rich Skelton in the team roping. “I’m pretty excited about that. Our styles fit and I think we could do pretty well. Our goal is to get to the CFR and maybe our circuit finals this year and win enough to get into the big buildings down south next year,” Richard noted. “We’ll go hard until after Cheyenne and then re-evaluate at that point.”

Other big winners for the weekend included Barrhead’s Kolton Schmidt who won Wainwright for the second year in a row. After besting the field in 2016 with Shay Carroll on the heeling side, this time around the 2016 NFR qualifier teamed with seven time NFR qualifier Dugan Kelly to take home $5000 per man and confirm themselves as one of the teams to beat en route to the 2017 CFR.

Abilene, Texas barrel racer Jackie Ganter had a big weekend as she vies for a return trip to Northlands Coliseum in November. The 20 year old collected second place money at Sundre, High River and the long go at Wainwright, then finished 5th in the average at Wainwright where she too was defending champion, to grow her bank account by just under $7,000.

And in the saddle bronc riding, Layton Green won the long go, was second in the short go and won the average at Wainwright, then added a small cheque at Sundre for a $4900 weekend.

And south of the line, a quintet of Canadians made their presence felt at the rich Reno Rodeo, none more so than Donalda’s Curtis Cassidy who was 4th in the first go of the bull dogging, won the short go with a 4.2 second run and finished second overall for a whopping $9200 payday. Add in the $3200 the twelve time Canadian champion picked up in the tie down roping and steer wrestling at Sundre and Cassidy will need to lease a Brinks truck to get the week’s earnings to the bank. Manitoba bareback rider Orin Larsen placed in both go rounds and the finals to finish third overall for a sizable $5669 Reno payoff while World Champion saddle bronc rider Zeke Thurston collected $4852 in Reno and Canadian bull riding champion Jordan Hansen rode out of Nevada just over $2000 to the good. And BC bronc rider Jake Watson had a productive $5692 weekend between a round win at Reno, the title at High River and a smaller cheque out of Wainwright.
