LAS VEGAS – Hardy Braden doesn’t have to look too far to find his bronc riding hero.

It’s his dad, Butch, who rode broncs professionally for a number of years before becoming a PRCA pickup man. Hardy Braden learned everything he knows about the game from his dad before furthering his education at both Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College and Oklahoma Panhandle State University.

Earlier this week, after failing to place in the sixth round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Braden reached out to his father for some advice. It has paid off in spades; he won Round 7 and finished fifth in the eighth round.

“I’d been sitting on my right foot a little bit and getting up in my saddle,” he said. “I called him just to verify what I had done. I take my binds up a half hole to make it a little tighter and to keep my foot from coming all the way up in the saddle.

“I asked him if that was the right decision to make and clarify what I was thinking. He agreed, and he mentioned that he thought that a couple rounds ago that I probably should have done that. Hee is always the one to call for me as far as advice or to justify my thinking.”

That’s because Butch Braden is his son’s trainer and coach and has been before the 28-year-old cowboy began riding bucking horses.

“He is my everything; he is my world,” the young Braden said.

His ride Thursday added $6,769 to his pocketbook, increasing his NFR take to $90,173.

“That is pretty unbelievable,” he said, noting that he might have to do something special for his family after the NFR concludes. “Everyone is getting special Christmas presents, I guess.”

He laughed a little, but he was serious. His family has been by his side since the beginning. While Dad serves as a pickup man, his mom, Tammy, is a PRCA timer who worked the NFR from 2013-15. He also has a sister, Tara, who has been beside her brother every step of the way.

On Thursday, he matched moves with Outlaw Buckers Rodeo’s OLS Tubs Magic Carpet for 84.5 points.

“I had seen t hat horse go; Sterling (Crawley) had it in the third round,” Braden said. “He told me what he did with the horse, and I was just trying to do the same day. She had a decent trip with Sterling, and I was just trying to match that.

“She tried a little harder than I was expecting. She almost ran me out of the back of the saddle.”

He stayed in the buggy and looked strong doing it, but he’s been doing it most of this year’s NFR. He has placed in six of eight rounds and pushed his earnings to $192,947. He sits fifth in the world standings and is excited to ride in the final two go-rounds.

After having so much success through the first eight nights, there’s no reason he wouldn’t be excited.

Defending champ, Inman advance to final day of BFO Las Vegas Championship

LAS VEGAS – Fifteen stitches and a bum hamstring had nothing on Weston Rutkowski.

The reigning Bullfighters Only world champion suffered those injuries a week ago, but what hurt him more was the doubt that was cast on his ability and his work ethic. He answered those doubts Thursday afternoon with a 90.5-point fight during the second Preliminary Round of the BFO Las Vegas Championship at the Tropicana Casino and Resort.

“This was about redemption,” said Rutkowski, the No. 1 man in the Pendleton Whisky World Standings and the frontrunner to repeat as the world champ. “There were a lot of people wondering if I could, if I could come in and take over.

“The Roughy Cup (last week) didn’t go as good as I wanted to, and I got 15 staples and reaggravated a hamstring injury. So, this was getting back to the basics to prove to everybody that I know how to fight bulls. This is a very dangerous sport, but in order to be a world champion, you have to battle through that and make yourself fight your fight.”

His bout was so strong that it didn’t look like the injuries even hampered him. He admitted, though, that he had to block it out to a point.

“Winning my round today means I get a day off, another day of rehab over here at the Fit N Wise sports medicine,” he said. “It’ll be nice to have an extra day off to be able to get ready to fight at the finals Saturday.”

Trainers have outfitted Rutkowski with a specialized wrap to help protect the hamstring as much as possible. He tested it out Wednesday night to make sure everything was good to go for his round.

“I went down to the arena, and I pretended to fight bulls for 45 minutes to an hour,” he said. “I proved to myself that the wrap would hold up.”

That was all he needed to help his confidence and put on the fight necessary to advance to Championship Saturday.

“One slip or one fall, and people think you’ve lost your step,” Rutkowski said. “If you can’t get up from some bumps and bruises, then this isn’t the sport for you.

“I’m not going to bow down. The world title goes through me, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let go of it without putting up a fight.”

While he is the No. 1 man in the game, there is one man that can catch Rutkowski: Toby Inman of Davis Junction, Ill., who joins Rutkowski and Kris Furr of Hamptonville, N.C., in advancing to Saturday’s finale. Furr won his three-man bout with an 80, while Inman scored 85 to advance.

“I thought my fight went great,” said Inman, who returned to the sport in 2016 after retiring five years before. “That was maybe the happiest I’ve ever felt before a fight. Today I wasn’t overthinking stuff.

“I had a fun little red bull, and I knew I just needed to play my cards right to advance. Thankfully I didn’t have Weston in my round. I just did a simple fight and made it work.”

Results
Weston Rutkowski, 90.5; Toby Inman, 85; and Kris Furr, 80.

LAS VEGAS – Bareback rider Clayton Biglow’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is like an old truck engine: It took a little while to get warmed up, but it’s humming right along now.

Biglow, 22, of Clements, Calif., failed to catch a check in the first five rounds of this year’s 10-round finale. Since the second half began, he hasn’t missed a lick. He’s placed in three straight rounds, including a second-place finish during Thursday’s eighth go-round on Beutler & Son Rodeo’s South Suds, worth $20,731.

“It was déjà vu,” he said. “I actually got on him here last year in the same round, except today I feel like I rode him better. That’s a rank son of a gun, the rankest horse I got on last year and so far the rankest horse this year.”

He must like powerful bucking horses. Thursday’s bareback riding featured the “eliminator” pen, the hardest-to-ride horses in the sport.

“That is what you want to do,” Biglow said. “That is why we are bareback riders. Getting by the hoppers (the easiest-to-ride broncs) is fun and all, but this is what you live for, to slay the dragons.”

He has pushed his NFR earnings to $72,404, with all but $10,000 coming in the last three nights. He now sits fourth in the world standings with $200,577 in season earnings. What’s more impressive is that the group of bareback riders has worked like a team.

“We are feeding off each other,” he said. “We are all brothers in that locker room. We are all pulling for each other. Everyone wants to win first, and it would be cool if we could all win first. No one is against each other. We are not here to beat Tim (O’Connell) or Richie (Champion). We are there to beat our horses, and that is all we are worried about.”

Now Biglow has just two more chances to cash in during his Vegas tenure this season. He’ll do everything possible to make it work.

LAS VEGAS – Richmond Champion’s phenomenal week in the Nevada desert just keeps getting better.

Champion rode Hi Lo ProRodeo’s Pretty Woman for 88 points Wednesday night to win the eighth go-round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. That $26,231 pushed his NFR earnings to $103,853 and moved him past the $205,000 mark in his annual pay.

“It’s all part of the plan, but it is also so unexpected at the same time,” said Champion of The Woodlands, Texas. You always dream about the victory lap and to throw your arms up in the arena with big numbers on the board. To be able to do it this week as many times as I have has just been a blessing, and it’s humbling at the same time.

“I just can’t wait for the next two rounds.”

He should be excited about what the final two nights hold for him. He shared the second-round victory and has placed on six of eight nights so far. Thursday’s round featured the “eliminator” pen of bareback horses, the hardest-to-ride broncs in the game.

“Yeah, that’s a lot of bronco,” he said of the western Kansas-raised bucking horse. “It is her first trip out here. I asked the guys, the 15 best bareback riders in the world, and nobody knew what that horse was, which is ironic, because we voted them there.

“It worked out, and she deserved to be here. I was happy to have her.”

The NFR is a rugged test of endurance, mental toughness and physicality. Champion is handling it all quite well. After all, this is his third qualification in four years.

“Rounds 1 through 4, you wake up feeling like you’ve been hit by a bus,” he said. “It seems like after that, your muscles are awake again, and you are used to it. Your hand stops hurting, and you might need some Advil, but, no, I feel great.”

Part of that is the work he put in ahead of time. His brother, Doug, owns a crossfit gym in Huntsville, Texas, so Champion is reaping the rewards that come with that.

“The training that leads up to this is huge,” Champion said. “It helps with your recovery; it helps your ability, your balance. Connecting your mind with your body any time you are working out and pushing yourself, it pays off. It’s a marathon, and it’s hard.”

Yes, it is, but it’s also very rewarding.

“You want to expect things to happen, but when they do, you are never ready,” he said. “I’m star struck every night.”

Actually, he’s playing the role of superstar in Las Vegas this week.

LAS VEGAS – If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes a big team to care for one of the greatest horses in rodeo.

That’s what happens with Scooter, the 2017 Steer Wrestling Horse of the Year owned by Tyler Pearson and Kyle Irwin. He’s also being ridden this week at the National Finals Rodeo by the reigning world champion, Tyler Waguespack, and Ty Erickson, the No. 1 man in the standings.

“It’s been unreal,” said Pearson, who placed for the fifth time Wednesday night during the seventh go-round, stopping the clock in 3.6 seconds to finish in a tie for second place with Irwin. “Ty’s fiancé, Sierra, has been packing his feet at night. We’ve been letting him out during the day to stretch and roll, making sure he’s comfortable.

Tyler Pearson

“We have (veterinarian) Dr. Marty Tanner on him every day, checking him out making sure that if he needs anything he gets it. It’s a whole team deal, for sure.”

Rodeo cowboys know how important it is to care for their horses. The mounts are a big key to their success, and their care is vital. What’s more impressive with Scooter is that he’s guided his four cowboys to $281,276 in earnings in just seven nights. Most of that has come from Pearson.

On Wednesday night, Pearson cashed in for another $18,192 to push his NFR earnings to just shy of $101,000. He is No. 2 in the standings with $210,880.

“It’s amazing and surreal to me,” said Pearson, 32, of Louisville, Miss. “It’s hard to believe, and every time we lay on over, it’s just another blessing. It’s kind of a blur right now. Maybe a couple of weeks after it’s over I will realize what we’re experiencing.

“I’m trying not to look at the numbers, and I’m trying not to look at the average. I just want to finish these 10 days. If at the end and I’m on the victory-lap horse and they’re giving me the gold buckle, I’ll celebrate then. But right now, I’m just having a blast.”

He certainly had a blast Wednesday. He knew the steer was going to try, but Scooter got the bulldogger into position to make a solid run. Canadians Tanner Milan and Scott Guenther had both run the steer in previous rounds, and they gave Pearson some insights on the animal.

“I knew I got a good start, and I knew Kyle (as his hazer) was there,” he said. “Once I got my hands on the steer, I knew he’d be good on the ground.

“None of this would be possible without Scooter. There are a lot of great horses out there, and for Scooter to be in a group of horses like that, it’s really special for us to have him in that same category.”

Now there are three nights remaining in the 2017 ProRodeo season. That means three more chances to cash in. Not only does the money help take care of bills and cover expenses, it’s also how championships are won. In rodeo, dollars equal points, and the contestants with the most money won in each event at the conclusion of the season will be crowned world champions.

“We’re just going to stay hungry and not stay where we are,” Pearson said. “We want to get over a half million in earnings on Scooter. We never came in with a number like that, but after the start we’ve had, we decided to get over $500,00 because we have a chance.”

LAS VEGAS – Mason Clements can’t stop marveling about his first experience at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

He shouldn’t. This is the grandest event in the sport, a 10-round affair that features only the very best in the game from the 2017 season. He’s one of the 120 contestants competing this week at the Thomas & Mack Center in front of more than 17,000 a night.

It doesn’t hurt that he’s done pretty well. He’s placed three times and earned just shy of $57,000. He has moved up six spots to ninth in the world standings with $143,005.

“Holy cow,” he said. “I’ve never done that in seven days.”

It’s been pretty remarkable for the Utah cowboy, who was born in Las Vegas. He added to his total Wednesday night with an 83.5-point ride on Calgary Stampede’s Shadow Warrior. That was good enough to finish in a three-way tie for fourth place, worth $7,333.

“It’s a good night’s work,” he said. “I knew that was a good stud of Calgary’s and that everyone liked him. I was just happy to draw a Calgary horse and have something that fits my style. I’m super pleased with what I had done.”

He’s been taking it all in. This marked the third time in seven nights that he earned an NFR paycheck. He finished in a tie for third place on opening night, then won the fifth go-round. He has plenty of reasons to enjoy every moment.

“I’m having a great time in Vegas,” Clements said. “I’m having more fun than I thought I was going to have. I’m going to enjoy ever night and everything Vegas has to offer.

“I get to hang out with my family. My dad’s here, and I get to hang out with him every night. Normally he has to go back to work but it is cool that I get to hang out with my old man and family and see them after the rodeo. I don’t get to do that at every rodeo, so this is awesome.”

LAS VEGAS – Even though he won Tuesday’s sixth round, Clayton Biglow liked Wednesday’s ride better at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

“That was probably the best I’ve felt all week,” said Biglow, who rode Pickett Pro Rodeo’s Scarlet Fever for 85.5 points to finish in a tie for second place with reigning world champion Tim O’Connell. “I did a little work on my rigging right before the rodeo.

“I picker her up a little bit, and it felt a whole lot better.”

Picking up a horse in bareback riding means he got a strong hold with his spurs during the ride. In an event where cowboys are marked on their spur rides, being aggressive can pay off. By utilizing the spurs, the best cowboys can help make a horse buck a little better.

Of course, having the equipment set accordingly helps a lot, too.

“You can only ride as good as your equipment,” he said. “It means everything.”

Biglow failed to catch a paycheck in the opening five go-rounds of this year’s championship. He didn’t let it bother him; instead, he found a way to finish among the top six two nights in a row. Through seven nights in Sin City, he has earned $51,673 – all but $10,000 of which has come in the last two rounds.

Scarlet Fever did her job, as well. In addition to guiding Biglow to a big payday Wednesday, the powerful bay horse guided Tanner Aus to the second-round victory last Friday.

“That horse is a little more testy than the one I got on (Tuesday), so it was good to get by that one,” he said. “I feel like I made a good spur ride, and I’m damn sure ready for the eliminator pen tomorrow.”

The eliminator pen is featured two nights during the 10-day championship, and Round 8 will showcase the hardest-to-ride bucking horses in the game. Biglow will be matched with Beutler & Son Rodeo’s South Suds on Thursday night.

“I feel great, and they can run whatever they want underneath me,” he said. “There is a lot of money left to be won. I’m ready to rock ’n’ roll these next three rounds.”

Spoken like a man on a mission.

LAS VEGAS – A stomach bug is no fun, period. It’s less fun for an athlete trying to win a world championship.

Just ask Tim O’Connell, the reigning world champion bareback rider from Zwingle, Iowa, who also leads the bareback riding world standings through seven nights of ProRodeo’s grand finale, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Tim O'Connell

Tim O’Connell

“I woke up yesterday very ill,” O’Connell said. “I spent most of the day in the ER getting fluids and everything else they gave me.”

He missed out on placing in Rounds 5 and 6, but he rebounded Wednesday night to finish in a tie for second place in the seventh round by matching moves with Korkow Rodeo’s Harry’s Girl for 85.5 points – he matched the score posted by Californian Clayton Biglow, and both men pocketed $18,192.

That’s pretty salty for a man who’d been able to hold down just a bit of food in the previous 24 hours.

“I think the greatest thing that happened for me yesterday was all the guys in the locker room,” said O’Connell, who has earned $87,846 in Las Vegas and pushed his season earnings to $289,762. “I had the support from all those guys.”

He is talking about the 14 other bareback riders, those that are trying to catch him for the world championship.

“J.R. Vezain came over and prayed over me before the national anthem,” O’Connell said. “The comradery in the bareback riding locker room is like nothing I’ve ever seen before.

“None of those guys had to do anything for me. I’m the guy they want to beat, but everyone was trying to help me out and help me get better.”

Despite his weakness, O’Connell overcame the struggles and put on a classic ride on a large horse. Though the two athletes hadn’t been matched together before Wednesday night, they danced across the Thomas & Mack Center dirt like they had.

“I’ve heard really good things about her,” he said of Harry’s Girl. “It is probably the biggest Korkow horse I’ve ever been on. I feel like I was back to being more solid.”

Now that he feels solid, he’s hoping to get more solid food. No matter how his tummy feels, he has three more nights to close out the 2017 ProRodeo season and reach for a second straight gold buckle.

Bullfighters Only kicks off Las Vegas Championship with true excitement

LAS VEGAS –The chase is one for the $25,000 first-place prize with the Bullfighters Only Las Vegas Championship.

The Preliminary Round action continues at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, and features the very best that the BFO has to offer. From reigning world champion Weston Rutkowski and veterans like Toby Inman to newcomers like Seth Wilson, it is a true showcase of freestyle bullfighting.

The winner of each round will advance to Saturday’s championship, with those who don’t moving on to Friday’s Wild Card for one final chance to make it to the championship.

“I have a chance to make a pretty fat statement,” said Wilson, a 17-year-old phenom from Jackson, Wyo. “I came here looking for the win, and this could be what it takes.”

Wilson will among the nine bullfighters competing Thursday, and he’s in the same 3-man section with Rutkowski, the BFO’s first world champion and the season leader. Wilson advanced out of last week’s Qualifier Rounds with the highest score so far, an 87.5-point fight Sunday afternoon.

“I knew that it was possible that I could draw into this,” Wilson said of facing off against the biggest name in the sport. “I’m super excited. This is really a dream come true.”

Thursday’s bouts will feature matchups like qualifier Dustin Konig of Ault, Colo., in the same section with Kris Furr and Schell Apple, both of whom are among the top 9 men in the world. Qualifiers Conner Rowley of Westcliffe, Colo., and Ely Sharkey of Ainsworth, Neb., are matched with Inman, the No. 2 man in the standings who still has a good shot to catch Rutkowski for the world title.

With the mix of some of the greatest fighting bulls in the sport, BFO is poised for the most exciting four days of the season.
