1. Peebles works his magic again in Ellensburg

ELLENSBURG, Wash. – It probably wasn’t a coincidence that bareback rider Steven Peebles drew a horse named Lucky at Ellensburg on Sept. 3. After all, the Redmond, Ore., cowboy has had his share of good fortune at the last stop on the Wrangler Million Dollar Gold Tour, presented by Justin Boots.

Peebles rode the Flying Diamond Rodeo horse for 89 points to finish with 170 on two head, clinching his second Ellensburg Rodeo title in three years.

“I love this place,” Peebles said. “Ellensburg always treats me good and I’ve had a lot of success here. It’s my second win here, so I sure look forward to it.”

In 2010, Peebles rode for an arena-record 90 points at the Ellensburg Rodeo Arena, and he almost tied his own mark on Sept. 3. Although the horse’s name was Lucky, there was plenty of skill involved as well.

“The ride was outstanding,” he said. “I had a really good horse and I knew she was going to be a lot of points and she showed off and was a little flashy so it was a real good time. I was hoping to break my arena record, but I fell a little short.”

Even without tying his arena mark, the win was much more significant for Peebles than just posting a big number. Entering the weekend, the three-time Wrangler NFR qualifier sat at the 13th position in the world standings.

The win has put his mind at ease in his chase for a fourth consecutive appearance in Las Vegas, moving him up to 10th in the world with about a $13,000 cushion over the 16th-place bareback rider.

“It’s always good to win a Tour rodeo and a big one like this,” he said. “Coming down to the end of the year and knowing you only have a few rodeos left, it can get a little scary. I always try to keep looking ahead and with a big win like this at the end of the year it’s a great feeling.

“It takes a lot of pressure off me, but I have to keep going forward because I’m still a long ways away from first place.”

The other champions at Ellensburg were steer wrestler Jason Miller (12.0 seconds on three head), team ropers Chad Masters and Clay O’Brien Cooper (16.7 seconds on three head), saddle bronc rider Jesse Wright (172 points on two head), tie-down roper Monty Lewis (28.2 seconds on three head), steer roper Cody Lee (28.6 seconds on two head), bull rider Tim Bingham (177 points on two head) and barrel racer Mary Walker (51.72 seconds on three runs).

• The Wrangler Million Dollar Tour bonus checks written up at the conclusion of the Ellensburg Rodeo contributed to just a single lead change in the world standings and, yes, that came in the bareback riding where the lead has changed six times since the start of July and for the last four weeks in a row. Steven Dent’s $7,500 bonus for finishing first in the WMDT standings was just enough to edge past Will Lowe by a margin of $1,551. The top six finishers in each event received a bonus check ranging from $7,500 to $1,500 which was added to their world standings total this week. The top 24 contestants in the world standings qualify for the Sept. 7-9 Justin Boots Playoffs in Puyallup, Wash.

2. Asay makes history with second X Bulls season title

ELLENSBURG, Wash. – Even if there was a little more drama at the end than he would have liked, Kanin Asay kept his date with destiny Sept. 1 and became the first man in the 10-year history of the Xtreme Bulls Tour to claim a second season title.

By finishing second in the long round and earning a check in the average, Asay finished with $53,703 in Tour earnings to edge Cody Teel by a bit more than $3,000.

“I was told (the Tour officials) went over the numbers five times just to be sure,” Asay said.

It got a bit dodgy at the end because Asay was bucked off Burns Rodeo’s Business Man at something close to seven seconds of his ride in the short go while Teel won the round with a 92-point effort on another Burns bull, Cooper’s Town.

The win paid Teel $4,653 and moved him to second place behind Seth Glause in the two-head average (176 points to 170) and earned him another $8,108.

“Because of the situation and what was at stake, I feel like this was one of the best rides of my career,” Teel said, “certainly the best I’ve ever had in an Xtreme Bulls event.

“I did all I could do. The first round bull was pretty weak (Teel scored a 78 on him), but the goal is to ride two bulls and we did that. You do your best and let the judges sort it out from there. Kanin deserved the title. He rode well all year.”

While Asay was thrilled to add another Xtreme Bulls Tour trophy to the one he earned in 2007, it didn’t play out the way he wanted.

One more second on Business Man would have made the evening just about perfect.

“My short-round bull really bucked and he was a huge one, maybe the biggest one I’ve been on all year,” Asay said. “He loosened up to the right and blew my feet out at about the six-to-seven second mark. I guess that’s better than being bucked off right out of the chutes, but it still made me mad. I really wanted to get my short-round bull rode and finish out the season by riding in both rounds.”

Glause, on the other hand, was beyond-all-limits thrilled to be the night’s big winner. When he completed his 87.5-point ride in the short round – good for second place behind Teel – he threw his hat in the air and pumped his fists to the sky.

For starters, he’d just pushed his earnings to $20,445 for the night (always nice), had “almost certainly secured a spot” in his fourth Wrangler National Finals Rodeo while moving up from ninth to fifth in the world standings.

“I was kind of in this spot a few years ago where a big win late in the season put me right in the mix (for a gold buckle),” Glause said, “but you can’t think too much about that. There’s a lot of time and bunch of rodeos to go to before it’s all over. I’m just enjoying this moment. It feels pretty surreal.”

3. LaDuke claims Badlands steer roping crown on first try

DEADWOOD, S.D. – Will LaDuke’s transition from tie-down roping to steer roping seems to be coming along just fine.

A model of consistency at the Days of ’76 Arena – winning checks in four of five rounds – LaDuke emerged from a veteran field Sept. 1 to win the Badlands Circuit Finals Steer Roping in his first try.

LaDuke, the rodeo coach at Gillette (Wyo.) College, had a second-place result, two thirds and a fourth, completing his four qualified runs in 61.3 seconds to edge Ora Taton by 4.3 seconds and earn $3,588.

“I roped calves for a long time in circuit rodeos,” LaDuke said, “but last year I decided it might be time to concentrate on steer roping. I have a wife (Ginger) and a three-year-old son (Tel) at home and it just seemed like steer roping might fit into my schedule better.”

So, LaDuke, 36, got help from the Mills family in Wyoming (Trent and Travis Mills have won the last two Mountain States year-end titles) and from his friend Miles Williams in Gillette to get the essentials down and develop a solid base.

He regularly roped alongside his Gillette College athletes at practice to sharpen his skills before trying his hand at five Badlands Circuit rodeos this summer.

“Steer roping feels like a real cowboy sport and that’s why I like it,” LaDuke said, “and I like the people who compete in the event. It’s a good fit.”

LaDuke lived in Belle Fourche, S.D., before moving to Gillette about nine years ago and has continued to compete in the Badlands Circuit because he feels connected to the region.

“Deadwood was certainly good to us today,” LaDuke said, “definitely worth the two-hour drive.”

Coy Thompson, also 36, captured the Badlands Circuit year-end title with total money of $5,086.

ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee Paul Tierney, 60, won the third and fifth rounds with times of 12.5 and 12.9 seconds. The other round winners were Brian Garr (12.2 seconds), Jack Garr (14.3) and Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days champion Jay Pixley (11.7).

• E.J. Roberts is one of 118 Roberts in the PRCA membership database – along with an A.J., B.J., J.R. and O.R. – and very clearly the one to watch. He’s not likely to make it to the Wrangler NFR this year (to be the first with his surname since steer wrestler Joey Roberts in 1991), but he’s won five PRCA rodeos, including the Aug. 31-Sept. 2 Walla Walla (Wash.) Frontier Days, in which he broke not one, but two arena records. Roberts had a run of 7.1 seconds in the second round to break Nate Baldwin’s record of 7.3 (2009) and had a time of 15.7 seconds on two head to surpass, by a full second, the record set by Fred Whitfield in 2002 and equaled by Matt Shiozawa in 2010. In a close and exciting competition, Monty Lewis (15.8) also broke the old record and third place Blair Burk (16.7) tied it. Saddle bronc rider Ty Atchison put a bit of extra emphasis on his biggest win of the year with an 87-point ride on Big Stone Rodeo’s Big Muddy that broke the arena record at the Walla Walla County Fairgrounds set by Wade Sundell (86 points) in 2010. Matt Sherwood and Joel Bach tied the arena record of 4.1 seconds set by Colter Todd and Cesar de la Cruz in 2008. The other champions at Frontier Days were bareback rider Bobby Mote (86 points), steer wrestler Casey Martin (9.5 seconds on two head), team ropers Chad Masters/Clay O’Brien Cooper (9.4 seconds on two head), steer roper Trevor Brazile (54.5 seconds on four head), bull rider Dakota Beck (87 points) and barrel racers Shada Brazile and Sherry Cervi (17.10 seconds each).

• Fans attending this weekend’s Magic Valley Stampede in Filer, Idaho, were treated to a facility upgrade – a $9,000 video screen at the north end of Shouse Arena, providing a closer look at the action and an instant replay function. And there were plenty of highlights worth replaying at the $93,759 rodeo, most involving once or future roughstock world champions. Reigning World Champion Bareback Rider Kaycee Feild led off with an eye-catching 88-point ride on Sankey Rodeo Company’s Gus and 2006 World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider Chad Ferley followed that with an 87-pointer on Sankey’s Domino Theory. The bull riding? That was won by world standings leader Cody Teel with 88 points on Robinson Pro Rodeo’s Tight Rope, a performance that helped Teel increase his weekend total earnings to $25,461 with checks at the Xtreme Bulls Finale, the Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo and the Walla Walla (Wash.) Frontier Days, plus his $4,500 bonus check for finishing third in the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour standings. His lead in the world standings entering the final month of the 2012 season is now nearly $30,000 over his nearest pursuer (and traveling partner) Trey Benton III. The other champions at Shouse Arena were steer wrestler Bray Armes (3.9 seconds), team ropers Spencer Mitchell and Dakota Kirchenschlager (4.4 seconds), tie-down roper Matt Shiozawa (9.0 seconds) and barrel racer Kim Schulze (17.23 seconds).

• There is a new leader in the Linderman Award standings. A second-place finish in the team roping at the Okotoks (Alberta) Pro Rodeo, put Canadian Kyle Thomson over the $1,000 mark in that event and moved him ahead of Jesse Jolly with total earnings of $34,774. Thomson, of Lundbreck, Alberta, now has $28,441 in saddle bronc riding, $5,102 in steer wrestling and $1,231 as a team roping heeler, fulfilling the requirement that he have at least $1,000 won in three events with at least two of them at opposite ends of the arena. If the lead holds up, Thomson would become the first Canadian to win the Linderman since Bernie Smyth Jr., of Crossfield, Alberta, in 1990. Three-time Linderman Award winner Trell Etbauer is not entered in any saddle bronc events this month so he would seem to be out of the running, but Kyle Whitaker is another story. Whitaker, who has won a record six Lindermans, has been concentrating on trying to qualify for the Wrangler NFR in steer wrestling this year, but is still in reach of qualifying in tie-down roping and saddle bronc riding. He is entered in both events this month at Fort Madison, Iowa; Sioux Falls, S.D., and Waterloo, Iowa.

• Bull rider Sterling Furr didn’t win the permit section of the Kendall County PRCA Rodeo in his hometown of Boerne (Texas) – finishing second to Taylor Toves – but was cheered up immeasurably by coming back to win the rodeo itself with an 84-point ride on Bad Company Rodeo’s El Patron for $1,162. Including permit section earnings and ground money he earned $1,835 without ever leaving the town limits.

• Brazile watch: Inducted into the Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo Hall of Fame on Aug. 31, Trevor Brazile had a week to remember on a couple of other scores. With prize money checks at Ellensburg, Wash., and Walla Walla, Wash., plus a $6,000 bonus check for finishing second among team roping headers in the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour standings, he pushed his season earnings to $195,706. That puts him on the doorstep of a record seventh consecutive season with earnings of more than $200,000. The $4,222 he pocketed for winning the Walla Walla steer roping cut into Cody Lee’s margin in the world standings and kept him on task as he seeks a third Triple Crown in six years. Brazile leads the all-around and team roping-heading world standings and is third in steer roping.

4. Wilderness Circuit official survives a whale of a scare

Val Byram had been seeing humpback whales all morning on the final day of a five-day fishing trip to Alaska’s Glacier Bay last month and was thinking it “was all pretty darn cool,” until one of them nearly got him killed in a close encounter of the utterly terrifying kind.

Byram, a member of the Wilderness Circuit Board of Directors and a longtime clown/barrelman, was fishing with three friends on a 28-foot cabin cruiser when the whale swam underneath them in pursuit of a large school of herring and whacked the boat with the base of its tail.

Byram’s companions were knocked to the deck, but he kept his balance as the boat nearly capsized, only to be whipsawed into the one-to-two foot swells of the bay when the boat self-corrected.

“We had a (sonar) ‘fish finder’ onboard so I found out later that the water was 187 feet deep there and it was 51 degrees,” said Byram, of South Weber, Utah. “I was wearing my Wilderness Circuit sweat shirt, a pair of Wranglers and a windbreaker with a hood. The hood went over my eyes when I went in, and the clothes absorbed water like a sponge.

“I was just trying to avoid swallowing the salt water and find something to hold onto; my friends said I seemed to be swimming away from the boat at first. Finally, I saw something yellow and I just grabbed it. It was the boat’s one lifeline.”

From there, his friends were able to pull him back and then haul him up on deck from the rear platform. Byram, 67, said his brain wanted to help them, but was so cold and shaking so much he couldn’t convert thought to action.

“I’ve called back up there (to Alaska) and the boat captain told me I’ve kind of become a legend from there down to Seattle. He said that when people go into the water in Glacier Bay that they almost never get them back. Everything happens too fast and the conditions are too extreme.

“There are a lot of what ifs with a thing like this. Normally the tide in that area is much stronger than it was when I went in … and if two of us had gone overboard it is sure that only one of us would have gotten back. Next time? Yeah, I’ll wear a vest.”


“I seem to always do good in the arena here and it’s got a great beer stand.”
– Chad Ferley, the 2006 world champion saddle bronc rider, telling the Daily Record why the Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo is his favorite.

6. News and notes from the rodeo trail

The Oregon Trail Rodeo in Hastings, Neb., played host to 490 fourth-grade students on Aug. 31 for its 13th annual Kids Day. PRCA cowboys, a rodeo veterinarian, a Buffalo Bill re-enactor and other rodeo personnel taught the kids about ProRodeo, care of livestock, and rodeo’s place in Nebraska history. Students spent about 20 minutes at each of eight stations, practicing the barrel pattern, roping a steer dummy, steer wrestling, and viewing horses in the chutes with bronc saddles and bareback riggings. “Mostly, they enjoy getting out of school,” said teacher Rita Will of Lincoln Elementary School. “But they get a lot out of it, because when we come back to school, they draw pictures and write stories about what they’ve learned. We do a whole week of reading and learning about rodeo.” The kids also received free tickets to the rodeo … As part of the Aug. 30 Ellensburg (Wash.) Hall of Fame festivities – in which 16-time World Champion Trevor Brazile and Dr. Ken MacRae were inducted – the committee wrapped up their “Boots of Fame” fundraising campaign in a big way. Brazile and his team roping partner (and induction presenter) Patrick Smith signed the 25 hand-painted pairs of boots to increase their value to bidders. The auction raised more than $17,000 for the night, bringing the total intake to $42,325. “This year, the Ellensburg Rodeo Hall of Fame Association has made great progress towards our goal of establishing a year-round museum of rodeo history in Ellensburg,” said Teri L. Phillip, President of the Ellensburg Rodeo Hall of Fame Association … Rodeo clown Keith Isley’s clothes were sold for a good cause at the Elk City (Okla.) Rodeo of Champions. His pink Wrangler baggies were auctioned off during the Sept. 2 Tough Enough to Wear Pink performance of the rodeo, with funds raised going to the American Cancer Society. The baggies brought $7,000 and were purchased by Doug Gray, owner of the Dodge dealership in Elk City. “It’s a cause that’s really close to my heart,” Gray said. “My wife was diagnosed 10 years ago with breast cancer and we went through one long year of battling it. I’m very thankful to have her with me today.” Gray plans on hanging the baggies in “my man cave in the barn. I’m really glad to be able to help the cause, and that’s the main thing. It could have been worse. There was not a day that went by that we didn’t pray and pray and pray.” The baggies were autographed by world champions and rodeo contract personnel, including Bennie Beutler, Wayne Brooks, Stran Smith, Chad Masters, Fred Whitfield, Cody DeMoss and Harry Vold … For every copy sold of the newly released biography Spring Will Come: The Life of Clem McSpadden, a free copy will be donated to an Oklahoma school library by the ProRodeo Hall of Fame announcer’s family. The book sells for $46 (including tax and shipping) and can be obtained by sending a check or money order to Clem Book, P.O. Box 317, Chelsea, OK 74016-0317 … The Sept. 29 Blue Hat Rodeo in Checotah, Okla., will serve as a benefit for ProRodeo Hall of Famer Joe Beaver’s Bold Enough to Wear Blue initiative to raise diabetes awareness. The Resistol hat company is a sponsor and Beaver will be joined by fellow World Champions Roy Duvall, Ote Berry and Terry Don West in passing the hat … Frank Curry, who got his early training as a clown with the Ringling Brothers Circus and was introduced to a career in rodeo by Casey Tibbs, died July 28 in Bowling Green, Ky. He was 72. Curry was perhaps the only rodeo clown to come out of New York and was known as the Manhattan Matador, working such major events as California Rodeo Salinas. Curry also created and produced the Ronald McDonald Circus … Thorris Sandvick, instrumental in forming the Killdeer (N.D.) Mountain Roundup Rodeo and the father of 12-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier Larry Sandvick, died Aug. 27 while working on a tractor at his ranch north of Killdeer. He was 81. Sandvick was widely known for his support of rodeo from the high school level to the pros, his willingness to help out neighbors and work on community projects in Dunn County. The Dickinson-based Roughrider Commission named him Rancher of the Year in 2009 … An exceptional rodeo is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Oct. 5 for the children and young adults of the region at the Fort Bend County Fair & Rodeo in Rosenberg, Texas … Veteran PRCA announcer Gary Rogers of Layton, Utah, was released from hospital care in Ogden, Utah, on Aug. 31. Rogers, 58, had surgery for a torn meniscus on Aug. 13 and then went back into the hospital for emergency surgery due to a staph infection … The Ocala (Fla.) Shrine Rodeo, which celebrated its 30th anniversary over the weekend, has raised nearly $1.5 million for Shriners Hospitals, which treat children with burns, orthopedic problems, spinal cord injuries and cleft lips and palates … The Larimer County Fair in Loveland, Colo., surpassed 100,000 in attendance for the first time in its history this year, aided by the PRCA rodeo that had its first-ever sold-out performance there on Aug. 6 … Five-day attendance at the Benton County Fair & Rodeo in Kennewick, Wash., exceeded 120,000, up 10 percent from the previous year … Bill Ogg resigned as executive director of the Greeley (Colo.) Stampede on Aug. 30 after 3½ years in that position and the rodeo committee will immediately begin a search for his replacement.
