Money chosen John Justin Committeeperson of the Year

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Steven Money, who served as the rodeo director for the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo for 34 years, has been chosen as the 2017 John Justin Committeeperson of the Year.
Money retired as the rodeo director for the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo following the 2017 rodeo, which ran from July 20-24.
“When they first called me, my heart was joyous,” said Money, 66. “It’s such an honor to be recognized by all your other peers. I put that rodeo (Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo) as the first thing in my life. When you get an honor like this, it’s gratifying to know all the hard work you did has been recognized by other people. There are all these great people on committees and great rodeos and this is truly a great honor to receive. I really appreciate the PRCA and Justin (Boots) for putting this kind of award together.”
With help and leadership from Money, the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo, in 2016, became the 24th rodeo to be inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame since the inaugural class in 1979. It also was the first Utah rodeo to be inducted in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.
In December of 2016, through the leadership of Money, the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo was presented the PRCA’s annual Remuda Award. This is an award given to the rodeo committee that provides the best, most consistent pen of bucking stock, creating the best opportunities for contestants to score well.
“I am so thankful for the committee that we’ve had,” Money said. “We’ve just had excellent, excellent people on our committee who help make it so great. It’s a joy when you go to work with that committee. It’s something that I truly loved. It’s going to be very hard to be away from it, but I’m still going to be in contact with people in the rodeo business and help rodeo committees out.”
Money, a native of Spanish Fork, has been involved with the Western lifestyle his entire life.
“I rodeoed when I was younger, and I just love that passion to compete and (being a rodeo director) was a way to be associated with it,” Money said. “I think the most gratifying thing of all the awards and everything is when you see that crowd in there (at the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo). We’ve had 48 consecutive sellouts, that’s 12 years that we sold every single ticket we had. When the crowd is there, and people are patting you on the back for a great show, nothing can describe how good that feeling is.”
Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo joined the PRCA in 1942, and is home to one of the finest venues in the sport. Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo opened its new arena in 2012. The new arena sits 8,400 people.

2. RCRCF win has Sean Santucci altering plans

YAKIMA, Wash. – Sean Santucci went to last weekend’s RAM Columbia River Circuit Finals Rodeo just looking to maybe win a little money and have some fun.
He entered the 2018 season expecting to stick around the circuit.
Those plans quickly changed.
Santucci entered the rodeo in seventh place in the Columbia River Circuit year-end standings.
The 30-year-old steer wrestler went out and won the RCRCFR average in 12.6 seconds on three head Nov. 5. Santucci went into the rodeo plenty relaxed. And that paid dividends.
“This year’s probably been less pressure than any, because I kind of came off the road and quit trying to rodeo for a living and went to work,” Santucci said. “So, I’ve just been able to enjoy rodeo again.”
Santucci took second in the first round and won the third round in 3.8 seconds. He went out fifth in that final round and then waited anxiously, watching fellow bulldoggers get their turns to top his 3.8. None did.
“I had to sit there and endure the rest of the guys going,” laughed Santucci, who took home $5,161. “There were two or three other guys that could’ve got me that I was emotionally watching carefully. It was exciting. Just like any competition. It’s fun to put yourself in position to win and see what happens.”
The win earned Santucci a qualification to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee, Fla., and the prospect of adding some money there. With that, Santucci’s circuit-only rodeoing plans flew out the proverbial window.
Because the money from the circuit finals and RNCFR count toward the world standings, Santucci is excited to get going on the rodeo trail. He’s also hoping that the rule continues.
“It’s just a neat fact that a guy not rodeoing full time has a chance early on,” said Santucci, who farms and ranches on his family ranch in Prineville, Ore. “It’s a great incentive for the circuit cowboy to get out of the circuit and go do some rodeoing and feel like he has a chance.”
Santucci rode his 16-year-old gelding, Chopper, who he bought more than four years ago.
“He’s been pretty key in my success,” Santucci said. “I’ve been in the Top 20 on him. He definitely still has some good in him.”
Santucci made less than $10,000 in 2017. In 2016, he finished 53rd in the world. Earlier in his career, he’d finished inside the Top 20, but never qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.
Those recent struggles are why he originally decided not to go hard this season.
“Last year, things weren’t going as well, and I was getting tired and worn out on travel and I was trying to raise a family at home,” Santucci said. “The lack of drive was part of the measurement of success.”
His wife, Brittany, and 2-year-old son, Syd, were on hand Sunday for the win. Afterward, Brittany was more than understanding that her husband will be going back on the rodeo road when it works into their schedule, including in April, when Brittany is due with their second child.
“She’s been a trooper all the way through quite a few years at rodeoing full time,” Santucci said. “She’s used to the schedule and can roll with the punches pretty well.”
Other winners at the $147,751 rodeo were all-around cowboy Russell Cardoza ($3,110 in team roping and steer roping); bareback rider Steven Peebles (230.5 points on three head); team ropers Brooks Dahozy/Brent Falon (24.1 seconds on three head); saddle bronc rider Layton Green (243 points on three head); tie-down roper Tyson Durfey (24.7 seconds on three head); barrel racer Callahan Crossley (37.10 seconds on three head); steer roper Tom Sorey (31.2 seconds on two head) and bull rider Chase Dougherty (165.5 points on two head).

3. Cassidy claims the RWCFR

HEBER CITY, Utah – Twenty years into his ProRodeo career, steer wrestler Curtis Cassidy is off to a running start in the 2018 season by winning the RAM Wilderness Circuit Finals Rodeo at Heber City, Utah.
“Any win at any age is special, but getting the circuit finals 20 years into your career is special for sure,” Cassidy said. “It’s definitely a young man’s sport. Don’t get me wrong, but in steer wrestling for sure, if you have the horsepower under you, that is three-quarters of the battle and the rest is drawing the right steer.”
Cassidy placed third in the second round with 5.0 seconds and returned as the top bulldogger in the final round with a 3.9-second run.
“My first two runs at the circuit finals didn’t go as good as they should have, they weren’t bad, but they weren’t as good as I wanted them to be,” Cassidy said. “Then tonight was do-or-die. I basically had to try and put some pressure on the guys behind me that were ahead in the average.”
Altogether, Cassidy’s 13.5 seconds on three head turned into a $5,834 payday for the 39-year-old from Donalda, Alberta.
“Most guys don’t go as long as me,” Cassidy laughed. “At this point in my career, if I don’t have good horses to ride, I don’t feel like riding – and I have a good horse in Canada and Tom (Lewis) has a good horse here, so it gives me some interest to make a run at Vegas again.”
Cassidy rode Tom Lewis’ 12-year-old sorrel, Maverick, at the RWCFR and at the All American ProRodeo Finals at Waco, Texas, last month. At Waco, Cassidy won the second round and the semifinals, and placed second in the finals for a grand total of $10,179.
“He’s a great horse,” Cassidy said. “Basically, he does everything you could ask a horse to do – he is good in the corner, runs hard and runs great patterns.”
Cassidy knows a good horse when he sees one, having joined the PRCA in 1998 and qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER five times (2002, 2008-10, and 2014). Now he’s seeking his sixth qualification.
The Canadian bulldogger is off to a strong start in the 2018 season. He was already ranked second in the WEATHER GUARD® PRCA World Standings with $12,773 before winning the RWCFR.
“I have about $18,000 going into the season, so it’s full speed ahead,” Cassidy said. “I won’t go to everything in the winter, but I will go to Florida for the (RAM National Circuit) Finals and then California in the spring. But, I like to go to the close ones in the winter and spring; and then in mid-July I like to enter everything for those six weeks through September and go to five to seven rodeos a week. There’s so many good rodeos that time of the year. Everyone talks about the winter and Fourth of July, but from mid-July through Pendleton (Ore.), you can coast along and win and get $4,000-5,000 a week.”
Cassidy ended the 2017 season ranked 26th with $60,207 thanks to winning the Drayton Valley (Alberta) Rodeo and the Dixie Roundup in St. George, Utah. He was also the co-champion at the Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo and the Hand Hills Lake Stampede at Craigmyle, Alberta.
“I wasn’t qualified for the (RAM National) Circuit Finals, or any of the big winter rodeos, so I had a slow start,” Cassidy said. “This year I’m definitely going to put in a good effort to get to everything I can get to.”
Up next, Cassidy is heading to the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton, Alberta, on Nov. 8-12 – which can be viewed online at prorodeotv.com. From there, he’ll hit some rodeos in Canada before taking a break for the holidays to rest up for the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver, Colo., and the Sandhills Stock Show & Rodeo in Odessa, Texas, in January.
“This time of year slows down, but I have been rodeoing every week since the end of the season so it’s good because it keeps you sharp for the Canadian Finals,” Cassidy said.
Other winners at the $174,813 rodeo were all-around cowboy Rhen Richard ($6,077 in tie-down roping and team roping); bareback riders Caleb Bennett and Kaycee Feild (251 points on three head each); team ropers Thad Ward/Olin Pulham (19.9 seconds on three head); saddle bronc rider Jake Wright (249.5 points on three head); tie-down roper Matt Shiozawa (27.2 seconds on three head); barrel racer Jennifer Barrett (48.90 seconds on three head); and bull rider Joe Frost (247 points on three head).

4. News & Notes from the rodeo trail

The National Finals Rodeo Committee announced Nov. 3 that Boyd Polhamus has been named to succeed Shawn Davis as the production manager of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER. The annual event, held at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, is scheduled for Dec.7-16 this year. Polhamus will work closely with Davis, the current NFR General Manager, as well as Las Vegas Events, NFRC and the PRCA on all aspects of rodeo production for the next three years, beginning in 2017. During Polhamus’ career that has spanned 32 years, he has been actively involved in more than 1,000 rodeos with nearly 4,500 performances across North America. “In 1959, John Van Cronkhite created the NFR to showcase the sport of rodeo with the idea of matching the best contestants against the best stock, allowing the contestants to have their complete degree of glory in the arena,” said Davis. “Following this theme has made the National Finals Rodeo the success that it is today. I feel that Boyd Polhamus has the experience, the ability and the determination to continue and enhance this original idea. I look forward to working with him and supporting him in the endeavor to take the NFR to greater heights.” In 2007-09 and 2012, Polhamus’ peers selected him as the PRCA Announcer of the Year. He also received the Lane Frost Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009. “To be honest, this is very intimidating,” said Polhamus. “Shawn and his staff have set the bar very high. He has taught me so much and I’m going to use what I’ve learned. The ultimate goal is to make the Wrangler NFR even more fun and engaging for fans, sponsors, and contestants while protecting the integrity of the race for a World Championship. It’s a daunting task, but I’m determined.” … The PRCA is partnering with the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association and Northlands Coliseum to offer a livestream broadcast of the 44th Canadian Finals Rodeo on ProRodeoTV. The Nov. 8-12 CFR will be exclusively broadcasted from Edmonton, Alberta, on ProRodeoTV.com. The broadcast will be available via home computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. There are six total performances of the CFR, with four-night performances beginning at 7:30 p.m. (MT) on Nov. 8-11. There are also 1 p.m. performances on Nov. 11-12, with the latter being the final round of the rodeo. Watching the CFR livestream is as easy as logging on to www.prorodeotv.com and signing up for a subscription. ProRodeoTV packages to stream the CFR are $29.99 (USD), which includes all six performances … Tarleton State University’s Rodeo Hall of Fame will induct Robert Anderson, Isaac Diaz and the Fambro family Nov. 11, during its eighth annual steak dinner and auction. The event, which benefits Tarleton Rodeo program’s scholarship fund, begins at 6 p.m. with an auction reception and preview mixer, followed by dinner, the Rodeo Hall of Fame induction ceremony and a live auction. Admission to the event, taking place at the City Hall venue at City Limits in Stephenville, Texas, is $50 per person and includes dinner. Tickets are available until the day of the event, or by contacting the Office of Rodeo Activities at 254.968.9344 or 254.968.9187. Anderson, a bull rider who won the average at the 1970 College National Finals Rodeo, helped create the Tarleton Rodeo Alumni Chapter where he serves as president. Diaz was a member of Tarleton’s 2010 CNFR team, winning that season’s saddle bronc riding title. After leaving Tarleton, he continued his professional career in rodeo with five Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifications (2007, 2009, 2012-13, 2015). Starting with the establishment of a scholarship in 1989, members of the Fambro family have been avid supporters of the Tarleton Rodeo program for nearly 30 years. The family’s contributions have benefited generations of students and the Tarleton Rodeo program. R.L. “Tuffy” Fambro initiated a Rodeo and Agriculture Scholarship to honor his parents, Alex Price and Ruby Fambro, who were ranchers in Erath and Stephens counties. In 2002, the family and friends began the Memorial Rodeo Scholarship in honor of R.L.’s brother, Joe Price Fambro.
