Pete Carr purchased Cool Runnings from Dale Woodard of Outlaw Buckers. Woodard has purchased the gelding from Wayne Vold as a 2-year-old.
“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.”
