1. Spreadborough takes comeback trail through Sheridan

SHERIDAN, Wyo. – After a two-year absence from competing at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, saddle bronc rider Sam Spreadborough is making a strong push to return to Las Vegas. Winning the Sheridan WYO Rodeo definitely helped his cause.

The Australian cowboy registered an 88-point ride on Sankey Rodeo’s Tango to win the saddle bronc riding title at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds.

“This is a pretty good feeling,” said Spreadborough, 33, who won in Sheridan for the first time. “My Fourth (of July) didn’t go so well, and I knew that Tango was good. I had some little doubts in my riding until then, but everything went great. I’m not complaining one bit.”

Spreadborough collected $4,399 for his winning ride, which gave him a much-needed jolt. He entered the weekend 13th in the Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings, and his Sheridan crown moved him to eighth.

“I knew about Tango, but I’ve never had the opportunity to ride him,” said Spreadborough, who resides in Snyder, Texas. “I had a good horse underneath me, and things just happened right. It was nice to get a big paycheck like that to keep me going.”

Spreadborough recorded his score in Sheridan on July 11, and then he had to wait and see how things unfolded the next night.

The Tamworth, New South Wales, native will return to action tomorrow, when he will ride at the Snake River Stampede in Nampa, Idaho.

“My mindset is to win the gold buckle; that’s the plan, that’s why we do this,” said Spreadborough, who finished a career-best 14th in 2011. “I’m just going to keep things going the way they are.”

Other winners at the $255,950 rodeo were bareback rider Will Lowe (90 points on Sankey Rodeo’s 9 Moons), steer wrestler Dakota Eldridge (10.9 seconds on two head), team ropers Chad Masters and Clay O’Brien Cooper, and Dustin Bird and Paul Eaves (9.7 seconds on two head each), tie-down roper Scott Kormos (17.7 seconds on two head), steer roper J.B. Whatley (55.1 seconds on four head), barrel racer Shelley Morgan (16.85 seconds) and bull rider Trey Benton III (89 points on Robinson Pro Rodeo’s No. 139).

Lowe, a three-time bareback riding world champion, equaled the PRCA season-best bareback ride of 2014 with a 90-point ride aboard Sankey Rodeo’s 9 Moons at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo. Lowe’s big score ties Steven Dent’s 90 in Window Rock, Ariz., last weekend, and Kaycee Feild’s 90-pointer at Rodeo Austin in March. Lowe earned $5,076 and remained 12th in the July 14 world standings.



2. Kimzey bounces back in Casper

CASPER, Wyo. – Some cowboys may have panicked after finding nothing but coal in their Cowboy Christmas stocking last week, but not Sage Kimzey.

The 19-year-old bull rider rebounded from a Grinch-like Fourth of July week to win the July 8-12 Central Wyoming Fair & PRCA Rodeo with a total of 166 points on two head.

Kimzey didn’t make a single penny during Cowboy Christmas, but the win in Casper was a nice pick-me-up.

“I didn’t stay on one bull all of Cowboy Christmas,” Kimzey said. “I drew some tough ones, and didn’t ride the ones I should have. It was tough to see everyone else winning money when I wasn’t, and it was starting to wear on me a bit. But that’s the great thing about rodeo – things can turn around for you real quick.”

Kimzey’s once very large lead in the Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings was cut to just $1,864 over defending World Champion J.W. Harris after the July 4 week.

The $4,611 Kimzey earned in Casper, along with the custom Montana Silversmiths spurs presented to each winner, offered him a boost in the standings, and also mentally.

“It was a really big win because I came off a very tough Fourth of July,” the Strong City, Okla., cowboy said. “This is a momentum deal. Having success and staying on two bulls was important, and it came at an opportune time. It’s always nice to win a big check at a great rodeo like this.”

Kimzey rode for 83 points in the first round, placing third, and then had an 84-point ride on Summit Pro Rodeo’s No. 6810 in the finals on July 12 to win the average by 10 points over Seth Glause.

Kimzey was the first bull rider out in the final round, which didn’t bother him one bit.

“My riding never changes, whether I’m first out or last out,” he said. “It’s nice going out first because there’s no added pressure. But it’s always nerve-wracking when you’re the first guy out and have to watch 10 other great bull riders go after you.”

He’s taking the win as an omen that things are about to get back to normal, which means winning big checks at rodeos for the rest of 2014.

“You can’t look at the standings at this time of the season because it’ll make you crazy,” Kimzey said. “There’s too much money left to get caught up in that. But this win should get me back on track and help me go into the summer riding well.”

Other winners at the $259,442 rodeo were all-around cowboy Josh Peek ($6,576 in tie-down roping and steer wrestling), bareback rider Ty Breuer (161 points on two head), steer wrestler Luke Branquinho (12.1 seconds on three head), team ropers Erich Rogers and Cory Petska (18.7 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Heith DeMoss (168 points on two head), tie-down roper Marshall Leonard (26.6 seconds on three head) and barrel racer Kassidy Dennison (34.44 seconds on two runs).



3. Weekend highlights, July 7-13

  • Bull rider Reid Barker, who is fourth in the July 14 Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings, is out on a 30-day doctor’s release after suffering a fractured right orbital bone and a serious concussion at the Central Wyoming Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Casper. Joe Gunderson, a 2010 Wrangler NFR qualifying bareback rider, is expected to miss some time after suffering a severe groin strain in Casper. Bull riding permit holder Jeremy Jex, 35, suffered a fractured pelvis and a urethra tear at the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo in Vernal, Utah. The Spanish Fork, Utah, native had won $450 on his permit before the injury, and is out indefinitely. Steer wrestler Brad Johnson is also out indefinitely after fracturing a bone in his lower left leg at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo.
  • Josh Peek, a steer wrestler and tie-down roper, had a huge weekend, earning a total of $9,545 in his two events. Peek made most of his money in Casper, where he won the all-around title with $6,576. Peek tied for the first round win in tie-down roping there, and would go on to finish fourth in the average, earning a total of $5,095 to go along with the $1,481 he collected in steer wrestling. Peek also earned $2,842 at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo – all in tie-down roping – after finishing third in the average with a time of 18.2 seconds on two head. In the July 14 world standings, Peek moved from 14th to 12th in the steer wrestling and shot up to 43rd in the tie-down standings. He also moved up four spots from eighth to fourth in the all-around standings.
  • If the name Josh Molnar doesn’t sound familiar, it’s because the 38-year-old bareback rider hasn’t rodeoed much in the past 15 years. Molnar, from The Dalles, Ore., bought his PRCA card in 1998, but had earnings of just $4,418 through 2013. This weekend, he won the Cheney (Wash.) Rodeo with a score of 80 points, and also won the Elgin (Ore.) Stampede, earning a total of $2,699. It was Molnar’s first PRCA win since he won in Toppenish, Wash., in 1997 on his permit. Molnar went to the College National Finals Rodeo three times (1997-99), but saw his promising rodeo career derailed by a rash of injuries from 1999-2003. After losing everything he owned in a fire in 2003, Molnar bought a fitness center in The Dalles, and has dedicated his life to running it ever since. Now, even at age 38, he’s ready for a comeback in rodeo. “I feel better physically now than I think I ever have,” Molnar said. “I feel as good as I did when I was 21, and I’m hoping to sell the gym I own and hit the road full-time starting next season. I never stopped wanting to rodeo, but was never in a position to be able to go. My tunnel vision now is focused on riding bucking horses.”
  • Saddle bronc rider Heith DeMoss, who sat 19th in the world standings entering the weekend, picked up two huge wins which gave him a boost as he chases his sixth Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification. The Heflin, La., cowboy won both rounds and the average in Casper, with an average score of 168 points on two head. DeMoss rode for 85 points to win the first round, and then covered Mo Betta Rodeo’s Sioux City Sue for 83 points to win the final round. He earned a total of $4,950 in Casper, then won the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo in Vernal, Utah, with an 85-point trip on Powder River Rodeo’s Rich N Fancy, earning another $3,892. He also tied for eighth place at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, and moved nine spots in the world standings to 10th.
  • BRAZILE WATCH: Trevor Brazile cashed checks at two rodeos over the weekend, doing most of his damage in the steer roping. At the Laramie (Wyo.) Jubilee Days, Brazile won the second round and average title in steer roping, earning a total of $2,927, and also took home the all-around honors. Brazile then won money in all three of his events at the Sheridan WYO Rodeo en route to another all-around title. He finished fifth in the first round of the tie-down roping and eighth in the average, earning $1,502. Brazile and team roping partner Travis Graves split third in the first round, each earning $1,466, while Brazile also made $625 in steer roping. Brazile retained his lead in the steer roping world standings, while remaining second in the team roping heading standings. He fell from seventh to eighth in tie-down roping.
  • Aside from Brazile, the only man to pick up multiple all-around titles over the weekend was Kyle Whitaker. The six-time Linderman Award winner earned $3,189 at the Hamel (Minn.) Rodeo & Bull Ridin’ Bonanza, making money in two events. Whitaker won the first round of the steer wrestling with a time of 3.5 seconds, and also won the second round of the saddle bronc riding with a 79-point ride on his way to finishing second in the average. The Chambers, Neb., cowboy also won the all-around at the Heart of the North Rodeo in Spooner, Wis., where he tied for third in the saddle bronc riding and split eighth in the steer wrestling. Whitaker won his last Linderman in 2011, and the two men who have won it the last two years also picked up wins this weekend. Kyle Thomson, the 2012 winner, won the saddle bronc riding title at the Teepee Creek (Alberta) Stampede, while Trell Etbauer, the 2013 Linderman champ, won the all-around at the Silver State Stampede in Elko, Nev.



4. Billy Hale, Dec. 1, 1938-July 12, 2014    

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Billy Hale, the 1971 world champion steer wrestler who qualified for the National Finals Rodeo 13 times, died July 12 at a nursing home in Eufaula, Okla. He was 75.

Born in Colorado Springs, Colo., Hale grew up in nearby Falcon, participating in track and basketball while a student at Falcon High School before concentrating on rodeo full time.

Initially a bareback rider and bull rider, Hale didn’t feel like he had enough ability to excel in those events and switched to steer wrestling where he became one of the most dominant bulldoggers of his generation.

His 13 NFR appearances (1959-60, 1963-73) ties him for sixth on the all-time list with Tom Ferguson. In addition to Hale’s world championship in 1971, when he won by nearly $8,000 over Bill Linderman – the biggest margin in any event that year – he also was reserve world champion in 1963 and 1973.

Eight times he finished among the top five steer wrestlers in the world, and he won NFR average titles in 1963 and 1964.

Hale always gave Willard Combs much of the credit for his rise to prominence. Hale moved to Checotah, Okla., from Colorado Springs in 1957 to soak up all the knowledge he could from the steer wrestling great.

“Willard and Benny Combs and their horse Baby Doll put Checotah on the map for bulldogging in the 1950s,” Hale once told the ProRodeo Sports News. “If you were a bulldogger, Checotah was the place to be.”

After qualifying for his 13th NFR in 1973, Hale started having back problems in 1974 when he suffered a ruptured disk. He underwent surgery and never made it back to the NFR, although he continued competing at least part time until 1991.

He famously survived a plane crash in 1984 while traveling from a rodeo in Crossett, Ark., that left him with a broken back and three broken ribs.

“It took about six weeks to heal up,” Hale told the PSN, and I went to about 50 rodeos the next year. But my back was weak, and that was the last year I went full time.”

After his career ended, Hale and his son, Bret, were partners in a firewood processing business and they also did some contracting work for a sawmill. Hale’s other son, Bradford, was a PRCA steer wrestler in the 1990s.

Funeral services are scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 22 at the Memorial Gardens Chapel in Colorado Springs. He will be buried next to his parents at the Memorial Gardens Cemetery at 3825 Airport Road in Colorado Springs.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, 101 Pro Rodeo Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919.

6. News & Notes from the Rodeo Trail

Frank Rhoades, a PRCA Gold Card Member who qualified for the bareback riding competition at the first National Finals Rodeo in 1959, died July 8 in an intensive care unit in Texarkana, Texas. He was 80. A 2001 inductee into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, Rhoades was known primarily in the rodeo world for his success as a bareback rider, but he also competed as a bull rider and steer wrestler, competing out of Texas and Oklahoma. Rhoades was born in Dallas and competed in his first junior rodeo competition there at 11 years old, so he was sort of the hometown favorite when he competed in the inaugural NFR at the Dallas State Fairgrounds. He qualified with what turned out to be the best season of his career, earning checks in 28 rodeos that year, including a shared win (with Bernis Johnson) in Memphis, Tenn. Rhoades then capped his year by winning Round 4 and Round 5 en route to a sixth-place finish in the NFR average. Services were held July 13 at Redland Methodist Church, near Rhoades’ hometown of Idabel, Okla. … Three horses belonging to two-time World Champion Steer Wrestler Lee Graves (2005, 2009) were injured slightly in an abduction July 9 in Black Diamond, Alberta. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police responded to the report of a stolen truck and horse trailer containing Graves’ horses – Dave, HYTY and Snap – at 1 a.m. Graves told RCMP officers he had parked his rig on Centre Avenue beside the Black Diamond Hotel an hour earlier, but noticed it was missing when he came out.Police patrolled the area along with Graves, who later spotted his rig in Black Diamond. He climbed on the running board of the truck and pleaded with the driver to abandon the vehicle before he did something foolish and injured the horses. The driver then sped away and crashed into a barrier, throwing Graves off and injuring him slightly. Police located the rig abandoned in Turner Valley a short time later, with all three horses still inside. RCMP say they were very distraught and sustained cuts and bruises from being slammed around during the crash. A canine team was called in and a short time later, the driver was located and arrested.The 23-year-old Turner Valley man, Joshua Lemire, has been charged with theft of a truck, theft of more than $5,000, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, criminal negligence causing bodily harm, endangering animals and failing to remain at two separate accident scenes …Five-time World Champion Bareback Rider and ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee Bruce Ford of Kersey, Colo., is recovering from a staph infection that has had him hospitalized for more than a week. Doctors gave him a transfusion and have him on a course of antibiotics to get him stabilized. He may be transferred to a rehab facility shortly … On July 19, will be live streaming the third performance of California Rodeo Salinas, starting at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET … Paige Nicholson, 2013 Miss Rodeo America, appeared on Fox News Channel’s show “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. Nicholson gave the hosts a quick roping lesson on a dummy steer before showing off her talent by roping one of the cameramen … Goliath, the 2005 Guinness Book of World Record holder for tallest living horse, passed away peacefully on July 3 at the Priefert Ranch in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. Goliath was an awe-inspiring black Percheron gelding who stood 19.1 hands high and weighed more than 2,500 pounds. Bill Priefert purchased Goliath, along with five other Percherons, that made up Priefert’s “Texas Thunder” Hitch which traveled 40,000-60,000 miles a year, exhibiting at more than 100 rodeos, parades, fairs, and equine events each year. After becoming a Guinness World Record title holder, Goliath traveled solo, making countless stops at Priefert dealers and Priefert-sponsored events across the country … The 91st edition of the Molalla (Ore.) Buckeroo Rodeo drew an estimated 47,000 fans to five performances over four days of Cowboy Christmas, including an all-time record 15,500 for the evening performance on Independence Day … Sheridan WYO rodeo board treasurer Sam Summers says a recent economic impact study shows the community derives about $5 million annual benefit from the rodeo at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds … The Spanish Fork (Utah) Rotary Club honored Steven Money – the man known locally as Mr. Rodeo – as its Citizen of the Year July 8 for his service to the community. During the past 30 years, Money has worked to make the Fiesta Days Rodeo one of the best rodeos in the country. Money started with the rodeo in 1984, and was the rodeo chairman in 1985. He was hired by Spanish Fork City in 1991 and worked as the golf course assistant superintendent, and then was assigned to be the fairgrounds manager. Money was then asked to be Spanish Fork’s Special Events Coordinator and in charge of the fairgrounds and the rodeo. “Every year, we have tried to improve the rodeo and take advantage of anything that comes up,” Money said. “The more you get involved in things and find things out, doors open for you.” … Andy Nelson, Barb Richhart, Dodge City, Kansas, and Earl W. Bascom will receive the annual Cowboy Keeper Award from the National Day of the Cowboy’s Board of Directors for their efforts in preserving pioneer heritage and cowboy culture … New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box served as the Grand Marshal for the Sheridan WYO Rodeo Parade on July 11. Box, a Wyoming native who lives outside of Cheyenne with his family, also appeared at Sheridan Stationary July 12 for a book signing of his new release, “Shots Fired.”



“Each of the last two years I had to sit out the three months prior (to the Wrangler) NFR because of injuries. So it would be nice just to stay healthy. If they give me a free roll to the Finals, where I’m not injured, I’ll be pretty excited.”

-Bull rider Trey Benton III telling the Casper Star-Tribune the realities of his job.
