Contract personnel announced for WNFR

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The contract personnel for the Dec. 7-16 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER have been announced, and the lists feature some familiar names.
For the fifth straight year, the trio of announcers for the WNFR remains the same. Boyd Polhamus of Brenham, Texas, Randy Corley of Silverdale, Wash., and Wayne Brooks of Lampasas, Texas, will be on the microphone for the 10 nights in Las Vegas. It marks the 19th consecutive year Polhamus will announce the WNFR and his 22nd overall. It’s Corley’s 17th WNFR appearance, and the seventh of Brooks’ career.
Livestock superintendent John Barnes of Sutherland, Iowa, makes his 12th consecutive WNFR appearance and is joined by chute bosses Tony Amaral of Marysville, Calif. (timed event) and Tom Neuens of Powell, Wyo. (roughstock). Benje Bendele of Dublin, Texas, is the music director.
Sunni Deb Backstrom of Congress, Ariz., is the WNFR secretary, which marks the 12th year in a row she has been selected and the 15th overall. Dollie Riddle of Vernon, Texas, is the assistant secretary.
Timer Jayme Pemberton of Terrell, Texas, is making her second WNFR trip and is joined by Amy Muller of Agar, S.D., who’s making her third trip in a row, and Kim Sutton of Onida, S.D., who is making her third trip to the WNFR.
Bullfighters Dusty Tuckness and Cody Webster return for the fifth straight year together and will be joined by Nathan Jestes, who’s making his second consecutive WNFR trip. It’s the ninth consecutive trip for Tuckness and the fifth for Webster.
Cody Sosebee makes his first trip as a barrelman. Chase Cervi makes his fourth consecutive appearance as a pickup man, and fifth overall. He’s joined by Matt Twitchell, who is making his third WNFR trip. Jason Bottoms of Corsicana, Texas, is the alternate pickup man.

2. Contract personnel named for NFSR

COLORADO SPRINGS – The official contract personnel for the Nov. 10-11 Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping have been announced.
At the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Charlie Throckmorton of Grandview, Texas, and Scott Grover of Camden Point, Mo., will handle the announcing duties.
Throckmorton has announced the NFSR 17 times in a row (tying legendary rodeo announcer McSpadden), and 18 times overall. McSpadden announced at the NFSR a record 19 times. Grover is making his NFSR debut.
Chute boss John Gwatney of Marquez, Texas, is back for his eighth consecutive trip, while arena usher Josh Edwards of Forney, Texas, is making his first appearance, and secretary Sandy Gwatney, John’s wife, is making her fourth appearance. Sandy Gwatney’s appearances at the NFSR have come the last four years in a row.
Timer Mary Brunner of Bergheim, Texas, makes her sixth trip and second in a row, and is joined by Shelly Baumann of Maypearl, Texas, who is making her inaugural appearance at the NFSR. Jill Franzen Loden of Weatherford, Texas, is back as the music director for the third time. James Phifer is the official NFSR photographer.

3. Pendleton Whisky “Let ‘er Buck” Stock of the Year awards unveiled

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Last year’s top roughstock from the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER made a big impression on the 2017 Top Stock of the Year awards.
The 2017 Pendleton Whisky “Let ‘er Buck” Stock of the Year awards go to Beutler and Son Rodeo’s Wound Up for the Saddle Bronc of the Year, C5 Rodeo’s Virgil for the Bareback of the Year, and D&H Cattle’s SweetPro Bruiser for the Bull of the Year. Wound Up was the 2016 top WNFR saddle bronc horse, while both Virgil and Bruiser were runner-up for the 2016 WNFR Top Stock Awards.
SweetPro Bruiser was also the 2015 WNFR top bull. The 6-year-old, 1,900-pound bull never saw a cowboy stay on for less than 90 points in 2017 – and only two pulled that off. Roscoe Jarboe scored 91 on him in San Antonio in February, while Cole Melancon scored 90 on him in Caldwell, Idaho, in August.
“This doesn’t happen very often,” said Dillon Page, who raised Bruiser and also trained Powder River Rodeo’s Shepherd Hills Tested to the same award in 2013. “We only have one bull that gets to be bull of the year. I’ve been fortunate, I guess. I’ve had two (winners) in the PRCA.”
Page pointed out that Bruiser has bloodlines tied to Bodacious (a two-time Bull of the Year and a ProRodeo Hall of Fame bull). So, it’s no surprise Bruiser bucks with so much tenacity.
Jarboe’s 91 on Bruiser tied for the third highest score of 2017 on a bull.
Wound Up was also a runner-up for top WNFR saddle bronc in 2015.
“It felt good,” Rusty Wright said about scoring 88 points on Wound Up in Austin, Texas, in March. “That horse really bucks and makes you do stuff right.
“I think it (the award) was well deserved. That horse is awesome. I can’t think of another horse as good as that one this year.”
Wound Up’s win snapped a three-year saddle bronc streak for Frontier Rodeo’s Medicine Woman.
In addition to being a top WNFR bareback runner-up, Virgil was second place for the 2016 Top Bareback of the Year.
Jake Vold’s 90.75 on him at the Ponoka (Alberta) Stampede in July was the fourth-highest bareback score of 2017.
Austin Foss scored 88 on Virgil to win at Lynden, Wash., in August.
“He’s a horse that bucks every time,” Foss said. “If a guy is doing his job you’re going to win on him every time. That combo makes him obviously the riders’ choice.”
Here are the full results:
Bareback Riding
1. Virgil, C5 Rodeo, 25 Points
2. Craig at Midnight, Powder River Rodeo, 16 Points
3. (Tie) Top Flight, Pickett Pro Rodeo, 14 Points
    Street Dance, Kesler Rodeo, 14 Points
    Onion Ring, Korkow Rodeo, 14 Points
Saddle Bronc Riding
1. Wound Up, Beutler & Son Rodeo, 53 Points
2. Spring Planting, Flying Five Rodeo, 21 Points
3. Medicine Woman, Frontier Rodeo, 12 Points
Bull Riding
1. SweetPro Bruiser, D&H Cattle, 31 Points
2. Spotted Demon, Big Stone Rodeo Inc, 25 Points
3. Hot & Ready, Smith, Harper & Morgan, 7 Points

4. Quaney maintains wave of success at Prairie Circuit Finals

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The 2017 season proved to be the best year yet for tie-down roper Cody Quaney. It’s still early, but it isn’t too bold to say he’s carried that same momentum into 2018.
On the strength of a three-head score of 26.3 seconds, Quaney walked away from the RAM Prairie Circuit Finals Rodeo as champion, and for the 27-year-old, it was a win he had to have.
“It’s exciting,” Quaney said. “It’s my first average win. I’ve won the year-end a couple times and was able to go to (the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo), but I knew I wouldn’t be able to win the year-end this year, so I knew I had to win the average. It’s really exciting, it worked out good.”
Following Quaney in the final tie-down roping scores were Tyler Milligan (26.5 seconds) and L.D. Meier (26.9 seconds), as the Cheney, Kan., cowboy’s $5,404 earned at the RPCFR was swayed in the blink of an eye. Quaney thought his 9.4-second, final-round score wouldn’t be strong enough to hold his eventual winning time.
“I didn’t have the ideal run on my third go,” Quaney explained. “I took a little longer than I was hoping to. It turned out that Tyler (Milligan) had a little trouble, he kind of fell down and got kicked, so I was able to get the win.”
Quaney, who was ranked 17th in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA tie-down roping standings at the conclusion of the 2017 season, couldn’t pinpoint one reason as to how he crafted such an important win, but he did give credit to his cavalry.
“(Spook) really takes care of me,” Quaney said. “He’s probably the reason I was able to win the average over here. I’ve had him for about five years now and he’s just been solid.”
A veteran quarter horse, Spook has become a trustworthy asset for Quaney.
“He does the same thing every time,” Quaney said. “There’s no surprises with him. Same thing every time.”
Narrowly missing his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER qualification by approximately $8,000, Quaney believes that his recent season finish and claim as RPCFR champion are testaments to his maturity as a cowboy. Quaney is also pondering what a quality win will do for a 2018 season that now includes an invitation to Kissimmee, Fla.
“It really helps,” Quaney said. “I’ve had some bad winters in the past, and so when you’re able to rack up quite a bit here first, it really takes off some pressure.”
Other winners at the $181,425 rodeo were bareback rider Steven Dent (237 points on three head), steer wrestler Stockton Graves (13.6 seconds on three head), team ropers Jesse Stipes/Jake Smith (18.4 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Hardy Braden (244.5 points on three head), barrel racer Carley Richardson (47.67 seconds on three head), steer roper Dee Kyler Jr. (38.2 seconds on three head) and bull rider Guthrie Murray (222.5 points on three head).

5. News & Notes from the rodeo trail

David Maurice Hebbert, a lifelong rancher who worked for Cervi Championship Rodeo, passed away Oct. 16. He was 67. Hebbert was born July 18, 1950, in Alliance, Neb., to R.M. ‘Mose’ and Merla (Rex) Hebbert. He graduated from Hyannis High School in 1968 and attended junior college in North Platte before transferring to Casper (Wyo.) College where he graduated in 1971. While at Casper, he was a member of the rodeo team and also attended Southern Colorado State College in Pueblo on a rodeo scholarship. Online condolences may be sent to webmaster@drauckerfh.com or by signing the GuestBook at http://www.drauckerfh.comRoy Gene Reger, a PRCA Gold Card member, of Markleville, Ind., passed away Oct. 8 after a short battle with ALS. He was 74. Reger, known by many as “Ropin’ Roy Reger,” started his rodeo career after high school. Reger placed in some of history’s top rodeos, including splitting the tie-down roping event win at the Fort Worth (Texas) Stock Show and Rodeo in 1978. He and Jeff Copenhaver tied for the average victory each clocking 32.7-second times on three head. Roy owned, trained and finished several great calf-roping horses over the years: “Booger,” “Trigger,” and many in between. He continued to train horses throughout his life. In later years, he became a PRCA Rodeo Judge, judging Great Lakes Circuit rodeos … James “Jim” Walker, a PRCA Gold Card member, team roper and PRCA judge, passed away on Sept. 24 in Horseshoe Bend, Idaho. He was 76. Walker worked on ranches and feedlots, sold recreational vehicles, ran a milk route and supported his family by roping before taking a job as a Veterinary Liaison Specialist, selling cattle vaccine in eastern Colorado, Kansas and northern Oklahoma. He and his family moved to Dodge City, Kan., in 1976 where Walker was instrumental in the regeneration of Dodge City Days and was a regular face at Beef Empire Days.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
 “I’m going to try and not make the NFR such a big deal. The NFR is every cowboy’s dream, but I think I’ve got so hyped up about it being the Finals and being so big that it has taken away from my bulldogging.
– Steer wrestler Ty Erickson told the ProRodeo Sports News about his mindset for the upcoming Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER. Erickson will arrive in Las Vegas Dec. 7-16 as the season leader for the second year in a row. He finished seventh in the world standings last year.
