Olin Hannum continues family tradition with Reno win

RENO, Nev. – A beaming Olin Hannum became the third member of his celebrated rodeo family to win the prestigious silver spurs as champion of the Reno Rodeo.

Hannum came through with a clutch final run in the 12-man short round Saturday night to win the steer wrestling average with a time of 12.5 seconds on three head.

That earned him $10,916 – plus those coveted silver spurs.

“I’ve had to look at my dad’s and my brother’s silver spurs for a long time now,” Hannum said. “It’s great to win a pair of my own.”

His brother, Jake, won the all-around title at the Reno Rodeo in 2007 while competing in tie-down roping and team roping. Their father, Jack Hannum, a ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee in 2015, won the steer wrestling in Reno in 1983.

“I looked at those spurs my dad won all the time when I was growing up,” Olin Hannum said.

Jack Hannum and his wife, Lynn, passed away a day apart on Sept. 15-16, 2014.

On Olin Hannum’s shirt collar was the word “Mom” with the middle letter looking a bit like the breast cancer ribbon.

“That’s our family brand that goes on our cattle and horses,” Olin said. “It’s a heart with crosses on the bottom. My mom fought cancer and I wear it on my shirt for everybody who goes through that. That’s why it’s on there, because it looks like the breast cancer sign.”

Hannum said he thought about his dad a lot during the last week.

“I felt his presence with me here tonight,” he said.

Jack Hannum was a big influence on his sons when he was alive, and a presence for them as they traveled the ProRodeo road.

“He was with me when I won Cheyenne (in 2011) and other big rodeos,” Olin Hannum said. “We’re a tight-knit family. Most of my family texted me tonight.”

Veteran Trevor Knowles posted the fastest time of the June 25 short round with a 4.1-second run, putting the pressure on Hannum.

“I knew I had to be 4.7 to tie Trevor,” Hannum said.

Hannum was up last, and completed his run in 4.5 seconds to earn the championship.

“This is one of the biggest rodeos, and whoever wins Reno sets themselves up to make the (Wrangler) National Finals (Rodeo),” Hannum said. “This is a great way to start my summer and the Fourth of July run.”

Jake Hannum’s only WNFR qualification came in tie-down roping the year he won the Reno Rodeo. Jack Hannum’s fifth and final NFR appearance came the year he won Reno.

Olin Hannum’s lone WNFR qualification came in 2011; he barely missed last year, finishing 17th in the world. He hopes to make it again this year – and if he does, it’ll be on a new horse, Maverick.

“I broke out a really green horse earlier this year,” Hannum said. “He was a ranch horse until January when a friend told me he thought he’d make a good bulldogging horse. He was right. I won my first three on him.”

Hannum and Maverick won three rodeos in California the weekend of May 6-8: the Kern County Sheriff’s Reserve Stampede Days Rodeo in Bakersfield; the Woodlake Lions Rodeo and the Mother Lode Round-Up in Sonora.

Now, he can add the Reno Rodeo to that list.

Saddle bronc rider Heith DeMoss earned his second set of silver spurs in as many years as the repeat champion with a score of 247 points on three head.

Other winners at the $488,939 rodeo were all-around cowboy Seth Hall ($4,394 in tie-down roping and team roping), bareback rider Clayton Biglow (253.5 points on three head), team ropers Garrett Tonozzi and Wyatt Cox (16.7 seconds on three head), tie-down roper Hunter Herrin (25.3 seconds on three head), barrel racer Stevi Hillman (51.14 seconds on three runs) and bull rider Markus Mariluch (158.5 points on two head).

  • Herrin entered the weekend with a lead of $1,359 over Ryan Jarrett for the top spot in the tie-down roping WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, but put some distance between himself and the rest of the field. Herrin earned a total of $13,767 in Reno, and then added another $4,858 when he clocked a rodeo record-tying 7.3-second run and took a victory lap at the Rodeo of the Ozarks in Springdale, Ark. Herrin now has $67,054, which puts him $19,984 clear of second-place Jarrett.
  • Canadian saddle bronc rider Zeke Thurston’s 89.5-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos’ Justin’s Sock Dancer in Springdale was a half-point off the arena record, and was the third-best saddle bronc riding score of the 2016 season. Thurston earned $4,061 in Springdale, and then added another $2,448 thanks to his winning 85-point trip on Harry Vold Rodeo’s Matterhorn to win Rodeo de Santa Fe (N.M.). He moved from ninth to seventh in the world standings.
  • Dustin Bird had a busy weekend in Canada, as he and team roping partner Russell Cardoza picked up the outright win in High River, Alberta, and split the victory in Sundre, which totaled $4,138 for each man. Bird also won the tie-down roping at the Wainwright (Alberta) Stampede with a time of 28.4 seconds on three head, earning a total of $5,445. Cardoza and Bird are second and third in the all-around world standings.
  • Bareback rider Tim O’Connell has now won a rodeo in five straight weeks after taking first in Edgewood, Iowa, with an 80.5-point trip on Three Hills Rodeo’s Just Peachy. Fellow bareback rider Tanner Aus has now won two rodeos for three straight weekends. Aus took first in Clear Lake, S.D., with an 86-point ride on Sutton Rodeos’ Moe Joe, and in Granite Falls, Minn., thanks to his 83.5 points on Championship Pro Rodeo’s Rolex. Bull rider Brett Stall’s 91 points on Championship Pro Rodeo’s Platinum Gold to win the Western Fest Stampede Rodeo in Granite Falls is tied for the second-highest marked bull ride of the season.
  • The steer roping leaderboard saw a lot of turnover last weekend as five of the top 10 runs of the season were made over the weekend in Sonora, Texas, including a new best time of 2016. In the third round, Chet Herren shaved .7 of a second off Rocky Patterson’s 8.8-second run in Weatherford, Texas, two weeks ago to claim the fastest run of the season.

 

Lufkin wins Pecos with record-tying ride

PECOS, Texas – With a grand opportunity in front of him, saddle bronc rider Joe Lufkin knew he couldn’t let it go to waste.

And he didn’t.

The Sallisaw, Okla., cowboy had a rodeo-record-tying 88-point ride on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Cool Runnings to win the June 22-25 West of the Pecos Rodeo at Buck Jackson Arena.

“I was very happy when I saw I drew Cool Runnings,” said Lufkin, 23. “I knew that was a chance to make money, and I had to keep my mind right and not overthink things. I had never been on that horse before, and that horse has been around for a long time. A lot of guys miss him out because he really blows right out of there, but that ride was a lot of fun, and he was just electric.”

Lufkin’s ride on the four-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo horse tied the West of the Pecos Rodeo saddle bronc riding record with Cody DeMoss, 2008; Jace Garrett, 2010; Cody Wright, 2013; Steven Dent, 2015; and Isaac Diaz, 2015.

“When I made the whistle, I wished the ride wasn’t over,” Lufkin said. “It’s one of the best rides I’ve ever had.”

This was Lufkin’s inaugural West of the Pecos Rodeo victory, and he earned $4,033 for his performance. It’s a nice boost for Lufkin, who moved up four spots to 17th in the June 27 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings with $18,522.

Lufkin, who joined the PRCA in 2014, finished a career-best 23rd in the world a year ago with $44,245.

“This win is great,” Lufkin said. “That’s one more step in helping me try and make the (WNFR). When you have the right horses, you have to make them count, and I was glad I made that one count. I want to make the Finals, and to do that I just need to keep trying my hardest and not look back on the past. You’re going to mess up on a horse here and there – that’s just going to happen – but you don’t want to think about that. You just have to get on the next one and try even harder.”

Like so many cowboys, Lufkin’s schedule is jam-packed right now, and that suits him fine.

“I will compete in eight rodeos up until the Fourth of July,” Lufkin said. “It’s just, go, go and go. When you’re rodeoing this hard, I like it because you get in a groove. You don’t have time to think about other stuff. This win at Pecos will help me do that for sure.”

Other winners at the $200,820 rodeo were all-around cowboy Paul David Tierney ($4,397 in tie-down roping and team roping), bareback rider Casey Colletti (86.5 points on Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo’s Sadie’s Gal), steer wrestler Juan Alcazar Jr. (10.7 seconds on two head), team ropers Joshua Torres and Jonathan Torres (14.6 seconds on two head), tie-down roper Marty Yates (18.4 seconds on two head), barrel racer Emily Miller (17.66 seconds), steer ropers Cody Lee and Scott Snedecor (36.2 seconds on three head each) and bull rider Cody Rostockyj (87.5 points on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Son Of Sam).

 

Bill Parker, May 19, 1954 – June 23, 2016

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Bill Parker, a three-time qualifier for the National Finals Rodeo, and the only competitor from Montana to qualify for the NFR in both team roping and tie-down roping, passed away June 23. He was 62.

Parker qualified once in tie-down roping (1980) and twice in team roping (1979, 1982).

As a team roping header, Parker paired with David Motes at the 1979 NFR and they finished second in the average with a time of 110.1 seconds on 10 head. Parker finished 11th in the world standings that year with $16,912.

Parker’s performance helped him win the 1979 PRCA Team Roping Rookie of the Year honor.

Parker roped with Brad Smith, the 1978 team roping world champion heeler, at the 1982 NFR, and they placed in three rounds and were 14th in the average with a time of 45.9 seconds on six head.

In his 1980 NFR appearance as a tie-down roper, Parker finished fifth in the average with a time of 153.4 seconds on 10 head to move up to 10th in the final world standings.

Parker remains the only tie-down roper from Montana to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo and the only tie-down roper from Montana to make the Top 5 of the world standings in the 79-year history of the Cowboys’ Turtle Association/RCA/PRCA (1937-2015).

He also was a standout in the PRCA circuit system.

Parker was the Montana Circuit year-end champion in team roping (1979) and tie-down roping (1984). What’s more, he was the RAM Montana Circuit Finals Rodeo all-around and team roping champion in 1980 and the tie-down roping champ in 1987.

He stopped roping in 1993 and then started back up competing again in 2010 in PRCA rodeos. He finished 159th in the 2015 world standings while competing on a part-time basis.

Parker is survived by his wife, Jann. There will be a funeral service at 2 p.m., July 7 in St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, 226 Wicks Lane, Billings, Mont. Arrangements are being handled by Dahl Funeral Chapel in Billings.

Lewis, a bull rider who qualified for the 1959 National Finals Rodeo, passed away March 4 at Midland Memorial Center in Midland, Texas. He was 81. Lewis finished 11th in the 1959 bull riding standings with $7,599, including a win at Fort Worth. He was sixth in the average with a 1,220-point score on seven head, when a 210-point maximum scoring system was in use.

 

Douglas Reed Schwartz, a former rodeo director for the Clark County Fair & Rodeo in Logandale, Nev., died from injuries sustained in a pedestrian-vehicle accident June 22 in Elko, Nev. He was 58. Schwartz first became involved with the Clark County Fair in 1994 as the assistant rodeo director. In 1996, he was elected to serve as a member of the Clark County Fair board of directors. In 1998, Schwartz was appointed by the board of directors to fulfill the position of rodeo director of the Clark County Fair & Rodeo, where he worked to bring the Logandale Rodeo to national prominence. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. July 1 at the Logandale LDS Stake Center. Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. June 30 at Moapa Valley Mortuary, and at 9:30 a.m. July 1, prior to services at the Stake Center.

 

Powder River Rodeo’s Cut the Cards, a three-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo saddle bronc, died June 23 at the age of 30. The horse was of the Tooke bloodlines, and has sired more than 30 WNFR offspring, including Miss Congeniality, a two-time PRCA Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year (2005, ’07) and Craig at Midnight, who was third in the 2015 PRCA Bareback Horse of the Year voting. Cut the Cards was buried next to ProRodeo Hall of Famer and World Champion Khadafy Skoal on the Franzen ranch.

 

PRCA Hall of Fame Stock Contractor Neal Gay celebrated his 90th birthday on June 25 with more than 100 people in attendance in Terrell, Texas.

With the 129th World’s Oldest Rodeo set to kick off June 28, Prescott (Ariz.) Frontier Days appears poised to enter a lease that will ensure that the rodeo has a home in Prescott for at least another 25 years. Prescott Frontier Days Board Member Mary Ann Suttles attended the Prescott City Council’s June 21 study session to discuss the lease that has been proposed between the city – the owners of the Prescott Rodeo Grounds – and Prescott Frontier Days, the event’s organizers. Under the terms of the draft document, the lease would run for 25 years, with a possibility of a five-year extension in the 22nd year. Although no vote occurred at the study session, both Suttles and council members voiced support for the draft agreement.

 

The Crosby (Texas) Fair & Rodeo’s Tough Enough to Wear Pink committee continued its community-wide support of breast cancer prevention, patient support and treatment programs at Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital by recently presenting a check for $135,000 to support the hospital’s Pink Heals Foundation. The money was derived from the committee’s annual Bras for the Cause fundraiser, held in February. The Tough Enough to Wear Pink committee has donated a total of $551,500 to the American Cancer Society and the Pink Heals Foundation Fund since 2006.

 

Granny May Arena, home of the Rooftop Rodeo in Estes Park, Colo., is now outfitted with new Priefert bucking chutes. The 90th edition of the Rooftop Rodeo is set for July 6-11. “Last year, we used a Priefert set from our stock contractor, Cervi Rodeo Company, and from all indications, it was a great success,” said Ben Vigil, president of Estes Park Western Heritage. “The Priefert chutes allowed us to be fast and professional, and we were able to produce great entertainment for our fans.” The Rooftop Rodeo has won the Small Rodeo Committee of the Year award five times (2003, 2006, 2008-10).

During the 2015-16 school year, Reno (Nev.) Rodeo volunteers visited at-risk elementary schools in Washoe County for the Reno Rodeo Reading Roundup literacy program, which focuses on the three R’s – reading, rodeo and responsibility. This year, the program visited 25 schools, serving nearly 1,700 local children, and has reached more than 40,000 children since its inception. “The program engages with first graders who are able to pet a horse, get a hug from Miss Reno Rodeo and give a high five to Smokey Bear, who joins in on the fire safety presentation,” said Francine Donshick, Reno Rodeo Reading Roundup chair. “This effort was launched in 2001 as a way to promote literacy, and has since distributed over 80,000 books to local youngsters.” The Reno Rodeo Association, in collaboration with the Reno Rodeo Foundation, provides the children with two new books to take home, tickets to the Reno Rodeo and a Reno Rodeo Reading Roundup pencil pocket for school.

 

PRCA team ropers Zac Small and Wesley Thorp won the Bob Feist Invitational team roping event in Reno, Nev., June 20.

Small is fifth among headers in the June 27 WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings, and Thorp is third in the heeling.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“Out here in ProRodeo, they don’t care who your daddy was, and what he won. I know I have to prove myself. I just have to keep putting in the time and effort and stay dedicated. I’ve succeeded at every level, and it would mean everything to me if I could win a gold buckle.”

-Marcus Theriot, who won the 2016 NIRA all-around and tie-down roping

titles at the College National Finals Rodeo, and two national championships at

the high school level. His father, Herbert, was the 1994 tie-down roping world

champion.

NEWS FROM THE RODEO TRAIL

 

Courtesy PRCA
June 26, 2016

 

Brent Romick Arena, the home of the 10-week Steamboat Springs (Colo.) ProRodeo Series, has received some upgrades for the 2016 season. Among them is a new sound system, and both the competition and warm-up arenas received an overhaul and will be slightly larger. New Priefert panels will give the arena a more modern feel, and there will also be more stalls available for those wanting to keep horses overnight. “It is significantly more contestant-friendly,” said John Shipley, the rodeo board president. “It will be pretty noticeable, particularly as (spectators) make their way from the concession stand over to the concrete grandstands. They are going to be walking right through the heart of a lot of this new equipment.”

 

California Rodeo Salinas has awarded scholarships to five Salinas Valley high school graduates who are attending local Hartnell College or transferring from Hartnell to a university. The five students who received scholarships are Francisco Amaro, Angela Serrano, Annabel Murillo, Alejandro Gomez and Adela Zamora.

 

Dr. Jim States was the recipient of the 2016 Dale Studley Memorial Award during the June 17 performance of the Buffalo Bill Rodeo in North Platte, Neb. “The award is given to people or organizations that give selflessly of their time and resources to help our organization,” said David Fudge, executive director of Nebraskaland Days. States, who served on the Nebraskaland Days Board from 1998-2003, is the 44th recipient of the Studley Award, which is annually given to an individual or group who has gone above and beyond for Nebraska’s Official State Celebration.

 

Former PRCA announcer Art Daly was honored posthumously with the 2016 Trail Boss Award from the Buffalo Bill Rodeo committee. The Trail Boss Award is given annually to someone who has contributed positively to rodeo in general, but in particular to west central Nebraska. Daly, who died Aug. 1, 2014, announced at PRCA events, as well as college and high school rodeos in the area.

 

Before the rodeo started in North Platte, the annual North Platte Jaycees’ Flapjack Feed took place the morning of June 17. Pancakes and sausage were served to the 400 people in attendance, with the $2,000 raised going to a fund which supports important causes in the community. The event is in its 31st year.

 

Pearl River Community College (Poplarville, Miss.) is getting ready to saddle up this fall as it puts the finishing touches on its inaugural rodeo team. The PRCC Board of Trustees approved the addition of rodeo to its roster of varsity sports June 16. “This program provides an opportunity to reach out to a variety of students in our area,” said Adam Breerwood, vice president of PRCC. “People are very excited about this, and we have donations coming in from all over.” At present, Breerwood said the school plans to offer 15 full-tuition scholarships for rodeo competitors, which includes men and women. When the team begins competition this fall, it will join Mississippi State, East Mississippi Community College and Northwest Mississippi as the only schools in the state offering a competitive rodeo team.

☛ Nat’l Jr HS Rodeo Assn Champs 6-26-16

Posted by on Jun 26, 2016 in BREAKING NEWS, RODEO & BULLRIDING NEWS, WHO, WHAT & WHERE | 0 comments

NATIONAL JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL RODEO CHAMP NAMED

Press release from NJHSRA
June 26, 2016

 

She’s only 13, but seventh-grader Wacey Day of Fleming, Colo., made two seven-second runs to edge out 165 other girls in goat tying at the National Junior High Finals Rodeo on Saturday in Lebanon, Tenn.

Day, who competes for the Nebraska team, tied her final goat in a blistering 7.5 seconds to win the three-round aggregate by a full second over Oregon’s Kennedy Buckner.

 

“Slow is smooth, smooth is fast, and fast is money,” said Day, who tied her first goat in 8.3 seconds and her second in 7.4. “I came out here and made the three best runs of my life.”

 

This year’s NJHFR drew 1,049 contestants from 42 different states, three Canadian provinces and Australia to rope and ride for scholarship dollars, jackpot money and prizes.

 

Colten Leech of Billings, Mo., won the national championship in chute dogging after turfing three steers in 8.72 seconds.

“I want to thank the good Lord for this opportunity and my family for getting me down the road,” said Leech.

 

In a competitive barrel-racing short round, the top two were Shae Halls – the daughter of former NFR arena-record holder Brandie Halls – and the eventual champ. Jayci Byler of Bellville, Texas, won the short round by two-tenths of a second to claim the national championship. Her horse, 14-year-old Prince of Perks owned by the Shoppa Ranch, is by Dash For Perks and out of a granddaughter of Dash For Cash and Gay Bar King. Byler’s family owns Byler Performance Equine – a swimming pool for horses – in Bellville.

 

“I did it,” Byler said. “And it was all because of Mom. She helped me most and encourages me every day.”

 

Other national champions were Girls’ Breakaway roper Sawyer Gilbert of Buffalo, S.D.; Boys’ Breakaway roper Brandon Ben of Peridot, Ariz.; Bareback Steer Rider Keenan Hayes of Hayden, Colo.; Saddle Bronc Steer Rider Gus Gaillard of Morse, Texas; Boys’ Goat Tyer Briar Teague of Rattan, Okla.; Ribbon Ropers Zoie Bedke and Cooper Duffin of Idaho; Tie-Down Roper Trevor Hale of Perryton, Texas; Pole Bender Maci Jo Zimmerman of New Ross, Ind.; Team Ropers Tanner Brown, Florence, Miss., and, Matt Watt, Geiger, Ala.; and Bull Rider Chris Villanueva of Mesquite, Texas.

 

The team from Idaho won the 2016 volleyball tournament, while the Girls’ AQHA Horse of the Year title went to Chaley Hext for Sinioto Rio, and the Boys’ counterpart went to Chance Thiessen for Cutter Play Me Stylish. The boys’ all-around rookie champion was Justice Hopper of Tooele, Utah; and the girls’ counterpart was Jayci Byler of Bellville, Texas. The overall team championship was won by Oklahoma with 11,650 points, edging second-place Texas and third-place Louisiana.

 

In Lebanon, NJHFR stock contractor Herbert Theriot of Mississippi assembled enough calves, steers and cows for nearly 1,800 runs. He sorted through more than 450 head to bring 340 calves, for instance. “It takes a lot of people to do an event like this, especially this size,” said Theriot, who credited Curtis Massey Cattle Company with bringing a great set of Holstein cattle for the bareback and saddle bronc steer riding.

 

Theriot, himself a former PRCA world champion in tie-down roping, has two sons. Marcus was the around champ five years ago at the NJHFR and won the national collegiate all-around title last week in Casper, Wyo., while Mason, 12, made the short round in ribbon roping at the NJHFR on Saturday.

 

The Junior High Division was created within the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) in 2004 for sixth- through eighth-graders as a feeder system into the high-school ranks, and now fields more than 2,500 junior-high students in 13 different events.

 

The Finals is in Tennessee for the first time this year; it was held in Gallup, N.M., through 2013 and spent the previous two years in Des Moines, Iowa. It will return to Lebanon in June 2017. Meanwhile, Gillette, Wyo., will host the National High School Finals Rodeo on July 17-23.

TAHC RELEASES UPDATE ON EQUINE HERPES IN COOKE COUNTY

 

Press release from TAHC
June 25, 2016

 

Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) officials released the premises quarantined for Equine Herpes Myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in Cooke County on June  22. There are no other reported EHM cases in Texas.

 

The first case of EHM in Cooke County was confirmed on May 24. Since the original case, six additional horses on the premises tested positive for the neuropathogenic strain of EHV-1. One of the test-positive horses exhibited neurologic signs consistent

with EHM, bringing the total number of EHM cases at this facility to two.

 

TAHC staff worked closely with the facility management and veterinarian to implement testing protocols and biosecurity measures. All test-positive horses (seven) on the premises were removed to an isolation area after being diagnosed. The premises

was released after more than 14 days of no new cases, and the previously positive horses tested negative for EHV-1.

 

TAHC is monitoring a situation at Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico, where a single horse has been diagnosed with EHM. The equine industry is encouraged to obtain the latest information on this outbreak and other disease events across the country by visiting

the Equine Disease Communication Center at:

http://www.equinediseasecc.org/outbreaks.aspx.
