Canada will be sending 9 of their best south of the border for finals, including Jordan Hansen, Tanner Milan, Scott Guenther, Jake Vold, Orin Ellis, Clay Elliot, Zeke Thurston, Layton Green, and Jeremy Buhler who will not be competing with his roping partner Levi Simpson as Simpson fell into the crying hole.

Leather N’ Lace Weekend in Ponoka Alberta

PONOKA, Alberta – Over $300,000 was won this weekend at the Calnash Ag Events Centre during The Breeze, The Runaway and the LeathernLace Open barrel races, hosted by Leather n’ Lace owner Laci Fyfe-Shock.

2016 was the first year The Runaway was hosted. The event sold out in less than a minute, filling 155 slots at $750 a piece, making a 3D slot race with a seven tenths split. Because of the huge success of this event, Laci decided to host another; The Breeze. This time being a $1780 entry fee with only 115 slots, and decided to make it a 2D slot race with a one second split. An open jackpot was also held Friday and Saturday afternoon with about 500 runs between the two days.

The clock was ticking the last few days leading up to The Breeze and Sam Smith could not seem to get a bite on renting her slot as she had no horse currently sound and able to run in the race.

A last minute deal with her friend Callahan Crossley, ended up paying off when Callahan ran a 17.053 on her great horse Brownie. The slot originally belonged to photographer and barrel racer, Kaylee-Jo Fawcett (Henkelman).

The deal they made ended up giving Kaylee-Jo $5,000 sending Sam and Callahan $22,500 each.

When asked what Sam is doing with the money she jokingly said, “It’s already gone, I paid some vet bills.”

For Christa Winsnes she had to come home with money from The Runaway, or it meant the shoes were being pulled from her horses feet and her season was over. Her and her husband Willy had discussed that this was it for money being put into barrel racing and rodeo for the season after a tough year with cattle prices. Christa and her mare Sasha have really been clicking this season and running a lot faster than she ran in The Runaway. After stopping the clock at a 18.308, Winsnes was not a happy women, storming out of the arena.

Her husband walked up to the trailer with pep in his step. Smiling he asked, “Do you want to see your run?” to which Christa replied, “Why are you smiling? No! Burn the video!” Willy said, “Do you know where you’re sitting with that run? Carman ran a 16.906, you were an 18.308.”

Christa’s face dropped,  thinking of what they could get done with $20,000 if she held on to the top spot in the 3D. They stayed out by the trailer, packed up and checked Rodeo-Go for results, scared to go back in.

After they packed up the trailer, they decided to go back into the building to watch the last five horses. They ran into friends who already congratulated her on her win. “No, no not yet! There are five horses to run.” Christa said.

“We called family members and said, ‘say a prayer, this might happen for us.’.”

Charlene Humphrey told Christa someone would have to run a thousandth of a second faster than her to bump her, the odds of that happening were slim. Christa told her it wasn’t real until the last horse ran, knowing anything is possible at a jackpot.

Finally Laci announced the money earners, and reality hit. They were going home with $20,000.

“You know, you don’t really win the 3D, you fall into it, and the luck of falling into it at this race, its something else; it’s surreal.” smiled Christa.

Current W.P.R.A World Standings as of July 26th

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah- I know I just did a world standings post after the Calgary Stampede, but another huge paying rodeo was on this weekend and shifted the standings yet again. Of course this will continue to happen right ’til the last rodeo of the season, but this is important.

Hailey Kinsel, the same college student who won RFD-TV’s The American this past February for 1/3 of a MILLION dollars on her 5 year old mare named Sister who is by Dinero aka PC Frenchmans Hayday, oh, and also won a College National Finals Rodeo title, won The Days of ’47 rodeo this past weekend, which paid $50,000 to first, plus the qualifying rounds, which send Kinsel from sitting in the 20’s, maybe it was even the 30’s, up to 7th spot with $92,812.19 after 47 rodeos attended. HOW EXCITING!!

The silver medalist, Kellie Tovar moved to 22nd and bronze medalist Lisa Lockhart moved to 9th position in the world rodeo standings.

Canadians Kirsty White and Carman Pozzobon are 32nd and 33rd respectively!

OH, and Tiany Schuster has almost a $100,000 ($97,961.10) lead over second place cowgirl, Stevi Hillman. No big deal..

Excited to watch how the standings play out the remainder of this season! Will we see Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi make a return to the bright lights of Vegas and finally get to watch the record setting Mona run at the T&M? Will Sydni Blanchard make it back? Will Amberleigh and Paige run again and break the arena record this year? I cannot wait to find out!

LCB Barrel Report July 21st-23rd

Edmonton, AB – The inaugural K-Days rodeo has come and gone, and is making huge waves in the CPRA standings. For many, this rodeo has been a game changer as the rodeo had $50,000 added in each event with entry fees being $300, making for an outstanding payday, and an opportunity to make the Canadian Finals Rodeo

The K-Days rodeo ladies barrel racing champion Crystal Christman, decided to make a few adjustments during this past weekend after a chat with her husband.

“My husband showed me some video of how I was riding in the spring as opposed to recently, and I used that to help make some adjustments. As well, we changed bits in Kennedy to a combination chain that I haven’t used in about 15 years. Kennedy was a turning point towards improvement. I haven’t ever seasoned a horse out on the trail and I am so very grateful to all of the friends and family who have helped me along the way. It’s a bit of a dream come true to walk among this community and call them not just mentors but also my friends.” she said.

“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to run at K-Days, but coming in as an alternate against the tough field of barrel racers up there, I didn’t have any expectations. We went in with the game plan to make our best run and enjoy the experience of coming down that particular alley. Lenny handled it all like he had been there a hundred times before. He was content to have his friend in the alley with him. When he came up the alley so calm and I let him pick his path to the first without bothering his face, I knew he was going to put a run together. It just felt so right. I didn’t know how fast it was going to be but it felt wonderful to have that trust back and make a smooth run. It was pretty surreal to hear the announcer say those three magical words ‘a new leader.’ ”

What could make this win even better? “Making a victory lap on my daughters horse made it that much more special.” Crystal said.

“I hope to continue to build trust with Lenny over the rest of the season. Binger is nearly healed up from a nasty cut and he is itching to get a chance to run this year as well! Peyton, Sterling and I will head to Medicine Hat and Bonnyville this week. I’m not sure where things will end up, but our family is so grateful to able to spend the time together doing what we love.”
Christman was sitting in 32nd position with just $3,838.02 won (standings including up to Teepee Creek Stampede) but by winning K-Days and roughly $11,446.00, it will move her to the top ten in the standings.

The K-Days rodeo paid 15 holes in the barrel racing, with last hole paying about $572. To be eligible to run at this rodeo you had to be in the top ten in the PRCA or WPRA from the 2016 standings, top CPRA 2016 standings (previously not qualified), top five in the PRCA/WPRA standings as of June 26th, 2017 (previously not qualified) ad top five CPRA 2017 standings as of June 26th, 2017 (not previously not qualified). If those who were qualified to enter did not enter, they went down the list.

The rodeo was great for CPRA and PRCA contestants as the money counts towards standings, but was not a WPRA approved rodeo, so a few WPRA competitors did not make it up to Edmonton as the money would’ve just been money in their pockets or to count towards CPRA standings, and for some, the CFR is not on their mind; The WNFR is instead.

The Days of ’47 Cowboy Games and Rodeo was held in Salt Lake City, Utah this weekend, and yesterday the $50,000 Gold Medal winner was none other than the 2017 RFD-TV American winner, Hailey Kinsel. What a year her and Sis are having!

Sis aka DM Sissy Hayday is a gorgeous huge palomino by PC Frenchmans Hayday and out of Royal Sissy Irish who is by Royal Shake Em. The duo took home a grand total of $87,000 from the gold medal games and has punched her ticket to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this December in Las Vegas, Nevada! This win should move Kinsel into the top 3 of the WPRA standings from 24th!

Calgary Stampede Champions Crowned

Calgary, AB- The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth has come and gone for another year and what a show it was! Over one million people came through the gates onto the grounds by day nine, and 140,000 alone on day nine.

The Calgary Stampede committee was able to create perfect barrel racing ground to bless us with one hell of a horse race, showing us fast times all week and resulting in a new arena record, set by Tiany Schuster on Showmance.

The 2010 sorrel gelding who is by First Smart Money and out of Blue Baby Cash, (double Dash for Cash bred) was purchased by Christine Lollis as a three year old out of the Lance Graves sale and trained him. He was then purchased by Tiany and her boyfriend.

Over the ten days of Calgary, Schuster won $111,750 total earnings, with $61,750 counting towards the Womans Professional Rodeo Association standings (half of the $100,000 plus week earnings), allowing her to create a new season earnings record in the WPRA! I look forward to watching this duo inside the Thomas and Mack this December at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Texas cowboy, Cory Solomon had one of the fast times of the week in to win the tie-down roping champion title and the $100,000 cheque with a 6.7 run.

Tyler Waguespack won the steer wrestling with a 3.8, and Canadian Cody Cassidy won second with a 4.0, good enough for a $25,000 cheque.

Richie Champion reminded us that its not just his last name that makes him one, showing up with a 90.5 on C5’s Virgil for $100,000.

It was a three-peat for Big Valley’s own Zeke Thurston in the saddle bronc, he post a 92 point ride on Get Smart, while fellow Albertan Layton Green rode Wild Cherry for 91.5 and the second place cheque.

World champion Sage Kimzey matched up with Night Moves which was awesome to watch! He rode for 91 points, while Garrett Smith took a re-ride on Compton Bound and was a close second with 90.5 points for the $25,000 cheque.

It was great to see Mellissa Hollingsworth back on CBC commentating during the barrel racing and covering interviews with our rodeo athletes. She did a fantastic job, as did Ron McLean, Mark Lee, Bob Tallman, and Scott Byrne who was a new addition whom I hope becomes a main fixture over the ten days of Stampede next year.

2017 Wildcard Saturday Results

Calgary, AB- Due to J.B Mauney’s injury from his round win yesterday afternoon in day four of pool B, Canadian Brock Radford will be advancing to Championship Sunday to take Mauney’s spot.

After his 90.5 ride on Cowahbunga, Mauney was knocked out, stepped on and then transported to hospital. He sustained a dislocated right shoulder and will not be competing on Sunday.

From Wildcard Saturday we are seeing two Canadians advancing. One from the tie-down roping being Logan Bird who was second in the round this afternoon with a 7.9 behind Cade Swor who ran a 7.8.

The second Canadian advancing will be Curtis Cassidy who won the steer wrestling this afternoon with a 3.4. Behind Curtis was Ty Erickson with a 3.5.

In the bareback there was a three way tie for second place, but Calgary goes by money accumulated through out the rounds so J.R Vezain will be advancing with Steven Peebles who ha da 90 point spur ride on You See Me.

The saddle bronc riding the field was full of the Wright family. Only Ryder Wright will be advancing from the pack, alongside Cort Scheer to Championship Sunday.

It was a fantastic barrel race to watch this afternoon! Kassie Mowry started off with a 17.230, then we saw Jackie Ganter run a 17.120 on Baby J, and THEN Amberleigh Moore ran out of the pen, guns a’blazin’ with a 17.090 to win the round and move to Championship Sunday. Canadian Nancy Csabay finished fourth this afternoon with a beautiful run on Wicked finishing her stampede with a 17.320.

Finally in the bull riding it was Cody Teel who rode Double Down for 89.5 and Mike Lee who rode All About You for 86. Canadian Jordan Hansen finished third just a half point behind Mike Lee with a 85.5.
