Carr Pro Rodeo purchased MGM Deuces Night from bareback rider Wes Stevenson.
“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.”
