DOS CATS PARTNERS – LEGAL FACT OR CREATIVE WRITING

 

ADDENDUM I

 

July 16, 2018
By Glory Ann Kurtz

 

On, July 1, 2018, I released an article on allaboutcutting.net entitled “Dos Cats Partners” – Legal Fact or Creative Writing?” The first paragraph specifically states, “The Dos Cats Partners name is identified, referenced to and provable as a Dufurrena operated “business entity” by Dufurrena, in Texas, and is identified in a myriad of provable and “identifiable locations”, (i.e.)

 

  1. In legally filed, open-record court documents in the Minshall Versus Dufurrena and “Dos Cats Partners” lawsuit.

 

  1. In legally filed, open-record court documents in the Vogel’s Versus Dufurrena lawsuit and “Dos Cats Partners” Receivership Appointment Request.

 

  1. In Dufurrena’s June 14, 2018 letter to the Officers and Directors of the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA).

 

  1. In the March 25, 2011 “Dos Cats Partners” agreement by and between Eugene and Janie Vogel and Edward L. Dufurrena and Shona Dufurrena, that is included in Dufurrena’s June 14, 2018 letter to the Officers and Directors of the NCHA.

 

Since the release of the first article, my investigation “has-confirmed” the use of the “Dos Cats Partners” name is also included in an AQHA transfer and registration registry for “Auspicious Cat.” As you may remember, Dufurrena states in his June 14, 2018 letter to the NCHA that this stallion is owned by Dufurrena.  Notwithstanding, this stallion was also the central focus of the Minshall Versus Dufurrena and “Dos Cats Partners” lawsuit for fraudulent advertising due to falsely advertising the stallion as HERDA NEGATIVE, when AQHA registry records “unequivocally verify”  that Auspicious Cat is HERDA POSITIVE.

 

  1. AQHA registry records for “Auspicious Cat”.

 

Furthermore, Dufurrena’s June 14, 2018 letter to the NCHA, reflects Dufurrena’s own  self-admission” of his use and ownership of the “Dos Cats Partners” moniker. Additionally, Dufurrena’s June 14, 2018 letter to the NCHA, along with other areas of identification, also proves that Dufurrena has used “Dos Cats Partners”, as a (dba) or an assumed nameidentifier. For the record, the use of the acronym (dba) or “doing business as” moniker, is identified under Texas Law as “an assumed name.”  Therefore, this acronym is a word formed from the initial or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term. For example:

 

Evidence of such use and “self-admitted ownership”, by Dufurrena, is reflected in his June 14, 2018 letter to the NCHA, whereby he states as follows:  “On January 1, 2016, I purchased the Vogel’s share of “Auspicious Cat” –  Exhibit 14. At that time, the co-ownership agreement was over as there were no horses remaining. Auspicious Cat was owned by me before the Vogel’s acquired (49) percent of him. The horse was originally part of “Dos Cats Partners” that was, at one time, a partnership. I ultimately bought out the other partners and kept the name. The partnership ceased to be such an entity when there were no other partners. I used it like an assumed name,” or “dba”. Once the Vogel’s no longer owned (49) percent, I kept the horse under the same name.”

 

In the Dufurrena/Vogel – March 25, 2011 hand-written “agreement”, Dufurrena refers to this agreement as being: “also known as Dos Cats Partners.

 

Acting on the foregoing information and facts, I furthered my investigation as an investigative journalist, and discovered that a (dba) or “an assumed nameused in Texas for business purposes. is subject to filing requirements by law, with the Texas Secretary of State, as well as with the county clerk the business is operating in?

 

My Dufurrena  “Dos Cats Partners investigation” revealed: 1) “Dos Cats Partners” doesn’t have a record of “ever being registered” with the Texas Secretary of State and 2) the “Dos Cats Partners” doesn’t have a record of ever being registered with the Cooke County, Texas Clerks Office. Both of which are required by Texas Law.

 

INVESTIGATION CONCLUSION:

 

Essentially, open-record court documents, as well as Dufurrena’s “self-admission” statement included in his June 14, 2018 letter to the NCHA, proves Dufurrena’s use of the “Dos Cats Partners” moniker, a (dba) or “an assumed name,” through three separate instances, i.e., 1) in the Vogel’s Versus Dufurrena lawsuit, 2)in the Minshall’s Versus Dufurrena lawsuit and 3) in the Dufurrena 2006 AQHA registry, which includes “Auspicious Cat.” This is evidenced by:

1.   The Minshall Versus Dufurrena and “Dos Cats Partners” lawsuit.

2.     The Vogel’s versus Dufurrena lawsuit.

3.    AQHA “Auspicious Cat” registry records.

 

I also discovered that Texas Law dictates written signatures of all participants in the partnership are required upon filing. Pursuant to the original article filing, my expanded investigation concerning the filing requirements of a “dba” or “an assumed name” in Texas, revealed the following facts.

 

TEXAS (“dba”) or “AN ASSUMED NAME” FILING REQUIREMENTS.

 

Texas Business and Commerce Code.

Title 5: Regulation of Businesses and Services, Subtitle (A). General Practices.

Chapter 71.001. Assumed Business or Professional Name.

Subchapter A. General Provisions.

Sec.71.001. Short Title. This chapter may be cited as the “Assumed Business or Professional Name Act.

 

Sec. 71.051. Certificate for certain unincorporated persons. A person must file a certificate under this subchapter if the person regularly conducts business or renders a professional service in this state under an assumed name other than a corporation, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, limited liability company or a foreign filing entity.

 

Sec 71.052. Contents of Certificate. The certificate must state:

      (1)     The assumed name under which the business is, or is to be, conducted or the professional service is or is to be rendered

 

(2)     If the registrant is:

(B) a partnership:

(i)      The venture or partnership name,

(ii)     The venture or partnership office address,

(iii)    The full name of each joint venture venturer or general partner and

(iv)    each joint venturer’s or general partner’s residence address if the venturer or partner is an individual.

 

Sec. 71.053. Execution of Certificate.

 (a)     The certificate must be executed and acknowledged:

(1)     by each individual whose name is required to be stated in the certificate or the individual’s representative or attorney-in-fact.

 

Sec. 71.054. Place of Filing.

(b)     In an action or proceeding brought against a person who has not complied with this chapter, the court may award the plaintiff or other party bringing the action or proceeding expenses incurred, including attorney’s fees, in locating and effecting service of process on the defendant.

 

Sec 71.202. Criminal Penalty: General Violation.

 

 (a)     A person commits an offense if the person:

(1)     Conducts business or renders a professional service in this state under an assumed name and (2) intentionally              violates this chapter.

 

(b)     An offense under this section is a Class A misdemeanor.

Class A Misdemeanor – Definition:

 

“Criminal Offenses in Texas are divided into two main categories: felonies and misdemeanors. A Class A Misdemeanor carries punishments of a fine of up to $4,000.00 and/or imprisonment of up to one year in a county jail.”

 

Therefore, my investigation has concluded with backup documents as usual: Dufurrena’s “Dos Cats Partners” – (dba) or “an assumed name”, hasn’t been in compliance with Texas business law through two lawsuits, i.e., Minshall’s and Vogel’s.  This is evidenced by my records check with the Texas Secretary of State and the Cooke County Clerks Office.

☛ NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity comes to Texas – AGAIN 7-12-18

NRCHA SNAFFLE BIT FUTURITY COMES TO TEXAS –  AGAIN 

ACTION TAKES PLACE OCT. 7-20 IN WILL ROGERS MEMORIAL CENTER, IN FORT WORTH, TEXAS

 

By Glory Ann Kurtz
July 12, 2018

 

CORRECTED COPY!

It’s three months away; however, excitement is already building for horse enthusiasts in the Fort Worth area, as the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity will be experiencing their Texas experience for only the second time when they move the event to the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas even though their association offices moved from the West Coast to Pilot Point, Texas, several years ago.

 

From humble beginnings in 1970, with a mere 27 entries, the NRCHA SB Futurity has flourished into one of the most prestigious and exciting events in the Western performance industry.

 

Scheduled for Oct. 7-20, the two-week event will feature thrills and occasionally spills from the industry’s leading riders on 3-year-old horses competing in three demanding events, including herd work, rein work and fence work. The winning Open horse and rider will take home a $125,000 first-place paycheck. The total payout for the entire show will top $1.1 million.

 

Limited age-event added money will total $606,419, which includes a $491,419 total added Open and Intermediate Open and Limited Open classes. The purse in the Non-Pro will include $100,000 added, along with $5,000 added to the Level One Limited Open, Amateur and the Non-Pro Limited Futurity.

 

Hundreds of horses and thousands of fans from across the U.S., Canada and overseas make the journey to the Futurity each year and since it will be held in Fort Worth in the famed Will Rogers Coliseum, the fan base may be huge.Also during the show, there will be the NRCHA Hall of Fame Banquet, the Best of the West trade show, two days of Snaffle Bit Futurity Horse Sales and horse show classes for horses 4 and older.

The aged event added money totaling $606,419 includes $491,419 added to the Open, Cinch Intermediate Open and Limited Open.  $100,000 is added to the Discount Tire Non Pro Futurity along with $5,000 added to the Level One Limited Open, the Amateur and the Non Pro Limited Futurity.

Horse Show Added Money totals $33,500 and includes a $7,000 Added Open Bridle and Open Hackamore and $3,000 added Non-Pro Bridle and Non-Pro Hackamore. Again this year is the Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge.

One of the important terms and conditions is that 3-year-old-horses may not have worked cattle in the Will Rogers Coliseum or other facilities at the Will Rogers Memorial Center prior to the NRCHA Snaffle Bit futurity, with the exception of when that work occurred as an entry in an approved NRCHA or NRCHA Alliance Partner (NCHA / AQHA / APHA) event.

NEW NRCHA SNAFFLE BIT FUTURITY FINALS FORMAT:

The NRCHA Board of Directors has implemented a new Open Finals format for the 2018 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity; one that puts the health and safety of the equine triathletes first.

Riders and horses that advance to the Open Finals and any additional lower divisions, will make one run in the Open Finals go-rounds. The scores earned in the Open Finals will be carried to the lower divisions. For example, if a rider qualifies for the Open and Intermediate Open Finals, he/she will complete their herd work, rein work and fence work during the Open Finals; they will not show during the Intermediate and Limited Open Finals. If a rider qualifies for the Intermediate and/or Limited Open Finals only, he/she will compete in the Intermediate and Limited Open Finals as usual.

The Board of Directors took their time making this decision, considering every aspect of this new policy. After much deliberation, the Board members determined the overall health of the young equine athletes was priority.

“We constantly worry about our horses’ physical and mental well being throughout the process. Not only do we want them to be successful at the Futurity, we also want them to have long, happy and productive careers beyond their 3-year-old year. The best cow horses are those who continue as happy, sound derby/hackamore horses, two rein horses and bridle horses,” said NRCHA President Todd Crawford.

In addition to limiting the number of runs a multi-divisional Open Finalists will make, the Board also approved a schedule that minimizes the number of times a horse will show in one day. Historically, 3-year-old Finalists complete their herd work, rein work and fence work all in one day. This year, all Finals herd work is held on Thursday, Oct. 18, while the rein work and fence work is dispersed over Friday and Saturday.

By implementing this new format, the NRCHA Board of Directors hopes to decrease the wear and tear on our young horses and to help secure the longevity of their future show career. Reined cow horse is a demanding sport where horses must be able to compete in three events with excellent athleticism, ability and stamina. The 3-years-olds rise to this challenge at the Snaffle Bit Futurity. The NRCHA Board said they are honored to host an event where these young triathletes can showcase their amazing talent Oct. 7-20, 2018 in Fort worth.

RODEO NEWS FROM THE PRCA

Courtesy PRCA
July 9, 2018
PRCA Stat of the Week
As of July 8, there have been 355 rodeos during the 2018 season paying out a collective $22,398,575.

1. Several cowboys eye Cowboy Christmas titles

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Gifts have been plentiful for several competitors during the 2018 Cowboy Christmas run.
With just one rodeo left to be completed on July 10 – the Rooftop Rodeo in Estes Park, Colo., a handful of cowboys are still in the mix to win the top roughstock and timed-event of Cowboy Christmas honors.
Unofficially as of July 9, reigning two-time world champion bareback rider Tim O’Connell is leading the roughstock chart with $31,014. His total will not change because he will not compete at Estes Park.
Saddle bronc rider Chase Brooks is close on O’Connell’s heels with $29,936. Brooks is currently tied for fourth place at Estes Park. Sage Kimzey, the reigning three-time world champion bull rider, has earned $29,856, but he is not competing at Estes Park.
Bareback rider Richmond Champion has earned $27,536 and has a chance to win more money. He will compete on Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Party Girl, July 10, in Estes Park.
The race to determine the timed-event Cowboy Christmas winner also is tight.
Unofficially, tie-down roper Cooper Martin is leading with $23,944, but he’s not competing at Estes Park.
Trevor Brazile is right behind Martin with $23,714 in earnings, and he’s competing in tie-down roping and team roping in Estes Park, Monday night.
Team ropers Aaron Tsinigine and Trey Yates have earned $20,333 each, and they also could overtake Martin while competing July 10 in Estes Park.
Brazile has the record for most money earned during Cowboy Christmas as he earned $39,993in 2011. Brazile earned $28,089 in tie-down roping that year and another $11,904 with partner Patrick Smith in team roping. Tie-down roper Shane Hanchey holds the single event, timed-event Cowboy Christmas record of $32,293 in earnings, which was set in 2016.

2. Cooper Martin cashes in at St. Paul Rodeo

ST. PAUL, Ore. – Riding Payday led to a big paycheck for Cooper Martin at the St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo.
The tie-down roper won the two-head average with an 18.0-second time.
“This is a big win and I want to keep the ball rolling,” said Martin, 21.
For his effort, he departed town after earning $9,366. The timing of the victory was ideal for Martin, as he began July 7 in 19th place in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $36,571.
Martin was solid throughout in St. Paul. He had a 9.4-second run in the first round and followed that with an 8.6-second time in the second round.
“In the first round, I ran her out there and she stepped right, and I popped her down,” Martin said. “When I flanked her, I thought she was going to kick and she took the tie. That’s just where I wanted to be after the first round. Then on my next one I knew I had a really good one. I knew all I needed to do was catch her, and it was going to be easy.”
Martin purchased Payday in May 2017 from fellow tie-down roper Reese Riemer. Payday and Martin have meshed from the start.
A season ago, with Payday providing the horsepower, Martin made his Wrangler National Finals Rodeo debut. He finished ninth in the final world standings and earned $65,846 in Las Vegas, highlighted by winning Round 4 with a 7.6-second time.
“He (Payday) is awesome and he can really run,” Martin said. “It always helps to draw good calves, but you darn sure have to have a fast horse, and he has been awesome. I’m really glad that he stayed sound, and I’m going to keep riding him all summer. He’s 18 now, and my goal is to keep him as long as I can.”
The win at St. Paul added another layer of success for Martin during Cowboy Christmas. He was victorious at the Cody (Wyo.) Stampede (July 1-4) and pocketed $10,046, and he finished third in the average at the World’s Oldest Rodeo in Prescott, Ariz., (June 28-July 4) to earn $4,532.
Those earnings put Martin one step closer to returning to the Wrangler NFR, but he’s keeping things in perspective. He was 11th in the July 9 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $45,937.
“Everybody who makes the NFR, it is always their dream come true, but for me there’s more pressure making it again,” Martin said. “At the beginning of the year, I was trying to prove myself to make the Finals again rather than just going out there and realizing if I make the Finals I will make it and if I don’t, I don’t. I realize that nothing is guaranteed.”
Other winners at the $360,982 rodeo were all-around cowboy Clayton Hass ($3,966, steer wrestling and team roping); bareback rider Tim O’Connell (85.5 points on Bridwell Pro Rodeos’ Ted), steer wrestler Tyler Pearson (8.1 seconds on two head); team ropers Garrett Rogers/Russell Cardoza and Kolton Schmidt/Cole Davison (10.0 seconds on two head); saddle bronc rider Chase Brooks (87.5 points on Corey & Lange Rodeo’s Diamond Fever); barrel racer Tracy Nowlin (17.26 seconds); and bull rider Stetson Wright (91 points on Big Stone Rodeo Inc’s Mortimer).

3. Records broken at Oakley City, Estes Park

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – These are the runs team ropers remember.
Dustin Egusquiza and Kory Koontz broke the rodeo record at the Oakley (Utah) Independence Day Rodeo with a time of 3.5 seconds on July 6.
The duo won the rodeo with the time and each earned $3,946. Egusquiza and Koontz were the second team to break the rodeo record July 6, as team ropers Jeff Flenniken/Jake Minor briefly held the best mark at 3.9 seconds before Egusquiza and Koontz’s run.
“We just had a really good steer and I got a good start and headed on him pretty fast and it just shaped up really fast and Kory heeled him as quick as possible,” Egusquiza said. “I’ve been 3.5 a few other times, but that’s the fastest I’ve ever been, and it is cool, and I remember all the times I have been 3.5.”
Egusquiza and Koontz won Round 7 of the 2017 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo with a 3.5-second time. That was a Round 7 record at the Wrangler NFR.
Before July 6, the Oakley City record in team roping was shared by three sets of team ropers at 4.1 seconds. Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira, and John Alley and Clark Adcock set the record in 2016. Then in 2017, Charly Crawford and Joseph Harrison tied the record.
“Dustin got it on really fast and it worked good,” said Koontz, a 21-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR. “That was more like an NFR time right there. You can’t be that fast with any kind of hiccup in there. Dustin has the ability to get it on a steer maybe faster than anyone I’ve seen in my life. He got it on that one really fast and everything clicked. Last year (at Oakley City) Dustin turned one maybe even faster and the steer handled a little wild and I missed him, so this was good redemption for me.”
Steer wrestler Will Lummus tied the rodeo record at the Rooftop Rodeo in Estes Park, Colo., which ends July 10, with a 3.2-second time in the second round. He shares the Rooftop Rodeo record with John Lowry, who set the record in 1976, and Chad Hagan matched the time in 2002.
“Honestly I didn’t even know I did tie the record,” Lummus said. “That’s the fastest I’ve ever been, last year I was 3.3 (seconds) at Jackson, Miss., and that was my fastest time, so to go faster is awesome. I jumped on a horse K.C. Jones owns named Tebow, and it is a joke in our rig if you want to win first, just get on Tebow. Tebow scores outstanding and he just lets you win.”
Lummus is traveling with fellow bulldoggers Ross Mosher, Cody Cabral, Dane Browning and Jones. If Lummus’ two-head average time of 7.0 seconds holds, it will be a record at the Rooftop Rodeo. Kenny Coppini (2002) and Matt Reeves (2010) shared the previous record in the two-head average at 7.5 seconds. The rodeo ends July 10.
At the St. Paul (Ore.) Rodeo, team ropers Steven Duby/Evan Arnold tied the rodeo record with a 4.1-second run in the first round. Charly Crawford and Joseph Harrison set the St. Paul record of 4.1 seconds in 2017.

4. Jesse Wright sidelined with broken collarbone

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Jesse Wright, the 2012 PRCA world champion saddle bronc rider, was in the mix to make his eighth career appearance at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this year.
That plan, however, took a detour when he was bucked off Calgary Stampede’s Urgent Delivery, June 29, at the Ponoka (Alberta) Stampede.
Wright landed on his left shoulder, breaking his left clavicle.
“I blew a stirrup and fell off on my shoulder before the whistle,” said Wright, 29. “Then it all just happened really quick. It whipped me out to the side and jerked me to the right real hard. I hold on with my right hand, and it just whipped me that way and I just came down on my left shoulder. It was the first thing to hit. I thought I had a stinger like you get in football, but after a couple of hours went by I decided it wasn’t just a stinger. I had surgery (July 3) and I had it (left clavicle) plated back together. I’m hoping my collarbone will be stronger now that it is (plated).”
Wright said he is going to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks because of the injury. As of July 9, Wright was 25th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $26,554. Wright has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo seven times – (2010-14, 2016-17).
“This sucks,” Wright said. “But I rode a long time pretty healthy, so I feel pretty blessed still. I will come back from it. I just need to get healthy and keep on keeping on.”
While Wright is on the mend, bareback rider Tanner Aus, who was 20th in the July 9 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $30,252, is hoping to return to action after injuring his left knee June 2 at the Flint Hills Rodeo in Strong City, Kan.
“I had grade 2 tears of my PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) and MCL (medial collateral ligament) in my left knee,” said Aus, who did not need surgery. “I just caught my toe in the gate leaving the chute. The horse shouldered into the gate and I caught my toe and peeled her back around. I double-grabbed right away and a couple guys came and helped me as I limped out of the arena. It wasn’t what I wanted to do.”
Aus, 28, is a three-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR (2015-17). He finished a career-best third in the 2017 world standings.
“I have been rehabbing and riding a bike, and it (his left knee) has been getting better every day,” he said.
Aus is hoping to return to competition July 13 at the Central Wyoming Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Casper, Wyo., and the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, July 14, in Colorado Springs, Colo.
“We just have to play it by ear,” Aus said about competing in Casper and Colorado Springs. “I don’t want to come back too soon. This could have been a lot worse. The injury could have been worse, and the circumstances could be worse, so I can’t complain at all.”

Posted by on Jul 8, 2018 in BREAKING NEWS, COW HORSE NEWS, CUTTING NEWS, HORSE ORGANIZATIONS, INDUSTRY NEWS, LAWSUITS & INDICTMENTS, TO THE EDITOR, WHO, WHAT & WHERE | 3 comments

Hi Glory Ann!
It’s been some time since our last communication, but I’ve certainly kept up with your investigation into the Dufurrena fiasco.  I must commend you on your tenacity in helping expose the truth!  Now, on the eve before the Dufurrena appeal hearing, I wanted to share the following thoughts with you.  I, along with so many others, are sick to death of legal issues and lawsuits involving the NCHA! The ship needs to be righted, and wrongs need to be accounted for, so our association can garner the respect it once had.  In doing so, the rules need to be enforced evenly and fairly!
There is NO DOUBT the Dufurrenas cheated the Vogels, and broke NCHA ownership rules!  The rules clearly state that a competitor or family member MUST own their horse to show in the non pro! It does not say, “You can think you own the horse you are showing”.  The simple dismissal by Phil Rapp (NCHA President…Who received Stevie Rey Von breedings from the Dufurrenas) saying the “Kids”(who are really adults) didn’t know anything about ownership issues WILL NOT WORK as an excuse to go easy on the Dufurrena family.  If Brandon and Rieta truly didn’t know (Which is HIGHLY UNLIKELY) that the Vogels owned a percentage of the horses they were showing, Ed and Shona are worse than what we all thought!  And if this is the case, they need to look to their parents for recourse, not the NCHA!  If the Dufurrena family is not punished like those who have committed the same offenses, We will all know the fix is in, and the NCHA WILL be sued and WILL lose!!  I’m not sure how astute the appeals board members are, but they, along with the Association members need to know! All I’m advocating is to treat people fairly!
Please use this as you see fit! And if you choose to use it, time is of the essence as their hearing is tomorrow morning! Thank you for your tireless effort to rid our great sport of bad apples!!

☛ Mercuria leaving NCHA – new sponsor search ongoing 7-7-18

MERCURIA LEAVING NCHA

 

Press release
July 7, 2018

According to an article in Quarter Horse News, officials from the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) are seeking new sponsors for the World Finals and World Series of Cutting. They say the current sponsor, Mercuria Global Energy, will not return in 2019.

“Mercuria has been with us and done a great job for many years and been one of the highlights of the cutting season and the cutting horse industry,” said Interim NCHA Executive Director Lewis Wray. “They just feel like at this time they’re going to go in a different direction, but we’re going to continue to make sure that our World Finals are state-of-the-art and they bring a lot of people into Fort Worth.”

The global energy group is the current title sponsor of both the NCHA World Finals, which is held in December in conjunction with the NCHA Futurity, and the eight-stop World Series of Cutting that offers $25,000-added classes for open and non-pro riders.

Although officials are seeking another entity to replace Mercuria in a sole sponsorship role for the World Finals, NCHA President Phil Rapp said they also are exploring the possibility of instead having a group of individuals or businesses join forces to sponsor the annual championship event. Both avenues will be pursued, he said.

Rapp added that the NCHA appreciated Mercuria’s long-running sponsorship.

“We’re grateful for what the Jaeggi family has done and the Mercuria company has done for us over these past, going-on, 10 years. They have contributed immensely to the success of the cutting horse industry, and we thank them for that,” he said. “And, we understand with most things with sponsorships, they have a start date and an end date, and we found that end date in 2018.”

PRCA Stat of the Week

As of July 1, there have been 315 rodeos during the 2018 season paying out a collective $18,743,028.

1. Rodeo legend Harry Tompkins passes away

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The rodeo world lost a legend June 29.
ProRodeo Hall of Famer Harry Tompkins, an eight-time world champion – including five bull riding titles (1948-50, ’52, ’60), one bareback riding win (1952) and two all-around crowns – (1952, ’60), passed away in Stephenville, Texas. He was 90.
“He was a fun-loving, generous man,” said Martha Jordan, Tompkins’ daughter.
Tompkins, a quiet kid from Peekskill Mountains of upstate N.Y., who never saw a bull until the day he climbed on, became one of the best cowboys in the long and storied history of rodeo.
 Known for his sense of humor – he was photographed waving to a cameraman while riding a bull in 1949 – Tompkins was a popular champion with fans and his fellow competitors. A superb athlete and stylish rider, the 5-foot-8, 150-pound Tompkins possessed exceptional balance and coordination.
He took pride in living a clean-cut lifestyle – no cigarettes or alcohol, and no gambling. He traveled hard by car and airplane with friends and fellow champions Jim Shoulders, Casey Tibbs and Jack Buschbom, the first group to hit the road with the intensity and dedication characterized by modern-day cowboys.
“Really, I was always doing it for the fun, and it was fun for years and years,” Tompkins said in a Sept. 19, 1984, article in the ProRodeo Sports News. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
Born in 1927, less than 50 miles north of New York City in Furnace Woods, N.Y., Tompkins learned to ride horses while working on a dude ranch, which had rodeos on Sundays to entertain guests.
In 1946, at 19 years old, Tompkins prepared to pull his first bull rope alongside the pros at Madison Square Garden. It took place at a special rodeo promotion where area wranglers – sponsored by the dude ranches which regularly employed them – had a chance to try their luck. Tompkins worked at the Cimarron Dude Ranch in New York.
By 1948, he was atop the rodeo world, winning the first of three consecutive bull riding championships.
He married Rosemary, the daughter of famous stock contractor Everett Colborn, in 1950, and moved to Dublin, Texas. He had a cattle ranch and designed the portable steel chutes that were used at rodeos in New York and Boston. Wrangler made him one of the first cowboys to have a corporate sponsor. After Rosemary died of cancer, Tompkins married current wife, Melba. He was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame with the inaugural 1979 class.
“I hope that I am not only remembered for my major accomplishments in rodeo, but also for my reputation of being honest, fair and respected for what I did,” Tompkins said in an Aug. 11, 1999, article of the PSN.
Tompkins is survived by wife, Melba, and her family; sons, Mark (Laura) Tompkins; Neal; daughter, Martha (Larry) Jordan and grandchildren, Jake and Ava.
Funeral services will take place July 3 at 10 a.m. (CT) at the Cowboy Church in Erath County at 4945 US-67, Stephenville, Texas, 76401.

2. Bareback rider Brown wins Pecos for first time

PECOS, Texas – There was no need for bareback rider Jake Brown to get a book on the horse he drew June 27 at the West of the Pecos (Texas) Rodeo.
Brown had previously enjoyed plenty of success on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Painted River, and that trend continued at Buck Jackson Arena.
Brown scored an 88-point ride on Painted River to capture the title at the West of the Pecos Rodeo for the first time. The rodeo concluded June 30.
“She’s an awesome horse, and I have had good luck on her in the past and I was pumped to have her,” said Brown, 28. “She did her deal and stepped around to the right after a couple of moves, and I was in time with her and made a good ride.”
For his performance, the Cleveland, Texas, cowboy earned $4,547. Brown remained fourth in the July 2 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $67,529 and he was thrilled to kick-start his Fourth of July run at Pecos.
“I was happy to get this win,” Brown said. “This is a rodeo I always wanted to do good at. I’m a Texas boy, so I like to do good at Texas rodeos. I consider Pecos part of our (Fourth of July) run because that started it for us. We have one day off through July 8. Getting the ball rolling quick and fast is a good confidence booster.”
Brown had no time to celebrate his Pecos conquest as he rode in Springdale, Ark. (June 28), Prescott, Ariz. (June 29), and Flagstaff, Ariz. (June 30). He will follow those with rodeos in Greeley, Colo.; Cody, Wyo.; West Jordan, Utah; Oakley, Utah; Estes Park, Colo.; and St. Paul, Ore.
“I love this time of year, especially when you get things going like I did in Pecos,” he said. “This is fun.”
It was no surprise Brown was smiling when he drew Painted River, considering his history with the horse.
In May, Brown placed second at the Guymon (Okla.) Pioneer Days Rodeo on Painted River with an 87-point ride.
Back in 2015 at his Wrangler National Finals Rodeo debut, he won Round 6 on Painted River with an 85.5-point ride. The following year at the Wrangler NFR, Brown placed second in Round 5 with an 88-point ride.
“I was really happy when I drew (Painted River) at Pecos,” Brown said. “She fits me good and we get along well. She is one I look forward to getting on. I knew I just had to take care of business (in Pecos), and the ride felt good.”
Brown finished a career-best eighth in the 2015 world standings. He’s keeping things in perspective as he makes another NFR run.
“I just need to take care of business and ride good and ride strong,” Brown said. “I want to go into the Finals with a shot to win it all. The first Finals I had was terrible, it didn’t go my way at all, but the other two I was happy with. They were better than the first. Being there is just the coolest thing in the world. It doesn’t matter if you don’t win a dime, you’re at the National Finals Rodeo. It is what you dream about your whole life, and you don’t get let down in one aspect of it.”
Other winners at the $206,385 rodeo were all-around cowboy Tanner Green ($6,508, tie-down roping and team roping), steer wrestler Brother Loud (7.5 seconds on two head), team ropers Kaleb Driggers/Junior Nogueira (13.9 seconds on two head), saddle bronc rider Ryder Wright (86.5 points on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Mike & Ike), tie-down roper Scott Kormos (18.9 seconds on two head), barrel racer Hailey Kinsel (17.38 seconds), steer roper Bryce Davis (38.9 seconds on three head), bull rider Brett Custer (86.5 points on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Super Freak).

DeMoss, who qualified for the Wrangler NFR in 2007, 2009-11 and 2013-17, was injured right before the whistle on Flying U Rodeo’s Red Smoke, June 20, at the Reno (Nev.) Rodeo. He didn’t register a score on the ride. DeMoss did have a 74-point ride on Big Bend Rodeo’s Owyhee Break at Reno one night later, but following that ride he realized his injury was something that needed to be repaired. He dislocated his left (free) arm, tearing the labrum and breaking a piece of bone where his bicep ties into it. During the surgery, a screw was inserted into the bone and the labrum was repaired. DeMoss had his surgery performed by Dr. R. Pepper Murray at Mountain West Surgical Center in Bountiful, Utah. DeMoss was 26th in the July 2 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $20,898.
