“He was pretty wolfy around to the right just at the gate,” said NFR qualifier Trey Benton III, referring the energetic bull’s bucking motion. “He was really good. He just stumbled at the five-second mark, but I think he was even more after he stumbled. He got after it.

“You have to have a good bull to score 91, and I got one there.”

She was the bucking horse of the Canadian Finals Rodeo and they won three out of four rounds that she was there. Pete Carr purchased Miss Congeniality from Dale Woodard of Outlaw Buckers, a stock contracting firm from Wainwright, Alberta.

“The bronc riders really like her,” said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo. “They say she is a better indoor horse. Most of our rodeos are outdoors, and she has been really good. I’m anxious to see her go in the Thomas & Mack.

“This horse had a very good year, so it’s no shock to me they selected her to the finals again. They won first and second on her in Lovington this year. She might be one of the most rider-friendly horses we own in the arena, but don’t get in front of her in the back pens because she will smoke you.”

“She was a freak deal,” said Dale Woodard of Outlaw Buckers. “I couldn’t get her to buck, then I took her to a rodeo to Toronto, which is a 48-hour truck ride. She went over there and bucked great, and she hasn’t looked back.

“And Pete is right about that horse being wild. When she comes out of the pen, look out.”

“When I had Cool Runnings, Cimarron Gerke won the long round at the Ponoka (Alberta) Stampede when he was 4 or 5,” Woodard said. “I sold him to Pete that fall right after the Canadian Finals. When we sold him to Pete, he was a bareback horse. He was wild, but he’s matured now, and Pete’s got him in broncs. I like to see those horses become broncs.

“I think one of the great things about that horse is his bloodline. Wayne Vold is famous for the bloodlines on his horses.”

“She’s a horse that’s just bucked all year,” Stevenson said. “She’s been on of the best in the business all year. I knew she’d have a really good shot to come to the finals. I knew she was that good, so part of the reason I sold her to Pete is that I knew she’d have a good shot to go to the finals. I bought her from Jim Zinser as a brood mare, but she bucked so good, I didn’t want to waste her sitting at my house. I wanted her to have a chance.

“She has a lot of heart. I was the first one to get on her with a rigging, and from the first time we ever bucked her, I knew that little filly has a lot of heart. She’s a very electric horse. She’s going to start doing some stuff right out of the box.”

“This is a very special mare that bucks the right way,” said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo. “You can tell she loves her job. We look for big things from her in the near future.”

“Every time I’ve seen her, she does the same thing,” said Casey Colletti, a two-time NFR qualifier from Pueblo, Colo. “She angles to the left and bails in the air. What’s really cool is that she tries as hard as she can every time. That is a bucking horse I dream of when I think of bucking horses.”

“Dang sure one of the best horses to get on,” said Tilden Hooper, a two-time NFR qualifier from Carthage, Texas. “That horse just bucks hard right out of there the whole time. She’s just a showy little horse. That’s the kind the judges like and the kind we like.”

“That Deuces Night is one outstanding bucking horse, the kind that will be the bareback horse of the finals, I think,” said D.V. Fennell of Neosho, Mo., a two-time qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. “Chris Harris won Pecos (Texas) on that horse this year, and it’s definitely a bucker.”

“That was a phenomenal horse, and she was just the best one out today,” Kelly Timberman, the 2004 world champion, said of MGM Deuces Night, which he rode to the 10th-round victory at the 2010 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. “The fact of the matter is she was just the best one out today and will probably be one of the best horses in the world for a long time. I was real privileged to have the horse.”

“They win a lot on him,” said Pete Carr, owner of Carr Pro Rodeo. “Last year was the first year that we put some pressure on him, and he was selected to be part of the TV pen at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He is really fun to flank, and he looks really fun to ride for the first four or five jumps, he just jumps in the air.

“He is really electric when he leaves the chute. He jumps up in the air and extends everything he can, kicks and just hangs there and stalls out for three or four jumps then moves on out.  He is young, but so far he has proved he can take it.”

“That horse just bucks,” said D.V. Fennell of Neosho, Mo., who rode Dirty Jacket to an 86.5 in the 10th round of the 2009 NFR. “He leaps in the air and shows off. He’s not just a dead easy hopper, but he’s a mix between a hopper and a bucker. He’s the one that you want.”

“That horse likes that arena a lot,” three-time world champion Will Lowe said. “He just likes to buck. He’s such a good horse. He’s in the TV pen at the NFR, so you know he’s the one guys want to get on.”
