Round One WNFR Recap

After a go-round win last night, Nellie Miller has gained some ground chasing that World Champion title, with a beautiful run. She is now behind the number two cowgirl, Stevi Hillman by $29,184.87 and behind Tiany Schuster by $93,610.04. Each round pays $26,230.77 to win, so anything is possible!

All of the ladies and their horses looked great last night, so I expect to see it get even faster tonight! Ground looked a little hard on third..

Amber Moores horse Paige took third barrel to the stifle, hopefully she is feeling ok tonight. Taci Bettis was making a nice run, snapped around second, but her saddle slipped headed up to third, and received a no time.

People keep talking about records being smashed during this Wrangler NFR, and no doubt we will see crazy fast times, but the pattern has been changed just the slightest each year, so is anything a true record anymore? The current “record” is 13.37 set by Taylor Jacob and Bo in 2013. Amberleigh Moore and Paige could’ve broke that last year, but had a knocked barrel. They did tie Taylors time though!

Best dressed: Ivy Conrado and Nellie Miller, cause I do love a Canadian Tuxedo!

Favourite run to watch: Nellie Miller. Sister made it look like a walk in the park.

Round two prediction is Kassie Mowry to win it with a 13.5.

As for Canadians last night, Jake Vold won the bareback riding on Oakridge with an 87.5 spur ride for $26,230.77, while Manitobas Orin Larsen was second with an 86.5 pocketing a cool $20,730.77.
