PRCA Weekly Press Release- Nov. 19, 2012

Trevor Brazile has got numbers: Sixteen world championships, nine all-around titles, 39 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifications, over $4.5 million in Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association earnings – and counting.

But Brazile counts things differently these days than he once did, because these days, different things matter.

“The numbers that were important to me were one, seven, eight and nine,” Brazile said of his all-around titles. “One, because it was the first. Seven, because that was the bar Ty Murray had set. Eight, because that was my goal for a long time. And nine, because that was the first one that wasn’t tied to someone else’s number. Maybe that was the first time I wasn’t trying to measure myself against something someone else had done, and I could really enjoy it for what it was.”

After 16 years as a pro and the countless miles traveled, hours practiced, horses trained, goals accomplished, spotlights shined and treatments taken, one might think Brazile would be burned out.

Think again.

“I’m having a blast,” Brazile says. “I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to, and I know what I want to do. As long as I’m making a living and enjoying what I do, why would I quit?”

For many years, as Brazile chased history, he couldn’t get the pages of the calendar to turn fast enough. Now, at age 36, he tries to slow the calendar down. “When I won my first (all-around championship in 2002) it was great, but it seemed like it took so long to get to eight. Maybe I didn’t enjoy them enough along the way.”

Then came a kernel of wisdom from the man he tracked so relentlessly for all those years. “Ty’s (Murray) advice to me the year I tied him at seven (all-around titles, in 2009) was that I should enjoy the ride, and try not to let it go by so fast. I really take that seriously.”

Part of enjoying the ride, for Brazile, is having his family along for it.

“My family comes with me most of the time, and they love it, too,” says Shada’s husband and Treston and Style’s dad. “I don’t want to take this time for granted. I know how special it is to be doing what we’re doing and how I’m blessed to have this time with my family.”

The man who’s running out of records to break – that aren’t already his – is more comfortable with his status, and that’s proving to be a bonanza for some of the next generation’s young guns.

“I always liked it when Joe Beaver or Roy Cooper or guys like that took notice of me and tried to help me,” he said. “It was the hardest thing for me to see myself as one of those guys, but now I’m starting to embrace that.”

Brazile still counts the money he wins, and he’s aware of the numbers.

As the leader in both the team roping and all-around races, the 36-year-old has a chance to match Guy Allen’s 18 gold buckles. Allen set the all-time record by winning all of those gold buckles in steer roping, between 1977 and 2004.

2. Kuhn’s next trick? A run at the Linderman Award

INVERNESSS, Fla. – Given that his mom, Becky, broke colts while she was pregnant with him, and that his dad, Steve, owns a horse equipment business in Gettysburg, Pa., it is probably fair to say that Shane Kuhn was born to the rodeo life.

(He says the published story that his mom went into labor with him while out horseback riding is probably an exaggeration).

Kuhn started team roping at age 8, began teaching himself to trick rope at 12, learned how to be a trick rider at 14 and now he’s beginning to think he may have the biggest trick of all up his sleeve, as a competitor in the rodeo arena with a run at the 2013 Linderman Award, recognizing the sport’s most versatile all-around hand.

Kuhn, who now lives in Anthony, Fla., made something of a breakthrough this year by winning the all-around title at the 2012 Ram Southeastern Circuit Finals Rodeo and finishing second to Justin Thigpen in the year-end circuit standings, competing in saddle bronc riding ($8,398) and steer wrestling ($6,743).

But Kuhn has also earned checks during his four years as a PRCA card holder in bull riding and bareback riding; he won the all-around title at the Nov. 16-17 Citrus Stampede in Inverness, Fla., with checks in bareback riding and steer wrestling.

To qualify for the Linderman Award, a contestant must earn at least $1,000 in three events, with at least one of those at the timed-event end of the arena and one in a roughstock event. It doesn’t take a lot of imagination to see where his mind is going with this.

“In high school I pretty much competed in every event,” Kuhn said. “If things went the right way and I seemed to be in reach of (qualifying for the Linderman), I wouldn’t have a problem with picking up another event.

“With the qualifying standard only $1,000 for each event, that kind of sparks my interest more.”

After breaking his left hand a few years back, Kuhn had made up his mind to concentrate on saddle bronc riding. He only went back to steer wrestling last season because his travel partners, Darby Hunt and Ivon Nelson, nagged him into it and kept on him all the way down the road.

Even after he won the all-around title at the circuit finals on the strength of his results in the steer wrestling, Kuhn still thinks his technique is “kind of crude,” and that bulldogging is by no means his best event.

“That’s crazy, huh?” Kuhn said. “If you had told me I’d make more money steer wrestling than saddle bronc riding at the circuit finals, I’d have said you were flat out lying.”

As for the bareback riding check he won at Inverness, he says that was just kind of an accident that worked out right.

He had lost his bareback riggin’ early in the year at a rodeo in Kissimmee, Fla., just got it back at Inverness and decided, “What the heck,” he’d give it a try.

“A bull rider found my gear, passed it along to the pickup man working there and we just couldn’t work out a time to get together before (Inverness).”

For the time being, his focus is on competition, but he still does occasional trick roping appearances – including one in Orlando, Fla., this year – and would one day like to work as a specialty act in PRCA rodeos.

Based on the YouTube video (, of his 2008 performance at a bull riding event in Harrisburg, Pa., Kuhn clearly loves the role of entertainer, making his grand entrance on a bucking bronc while waving his hat and then running across the arena to perform a variety of rope tricks.

“I’d like to get my PRCA card as trick roper,” Kuhn said. “Right now, it’s just something I do every once in a while. I’ve never really marketed myself … never pushed to do it. But it’s probably what I’d like to end up doing. In the back of my mind, that’s how I see my career going eventually.”

The other champions in Inverness, Fla., were permit bareback rider David Peebles (79 points), steer wrestler Juan Alcazar (4.1 seconds), team ropers Bradley Massey and Shane Hester (5.6 seconds), saddle bronc rider Mike Johnson (72 points), tie-down roper Seth Rodriguez (10.8 seconds), bull rider Dylan Werner (82 points) and barrel racer Jaime Barrow (15.00 seconds).

4. Super 8 offers fan discount to support PRCA sponsorship

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Rodeo fans across the country continue to enjoy a 15 percent discount at thousands of Super 8® hotels thanks to the Super 8 hotel brand’s sponsorship of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

A PRCA sponsor since 2011, the Super 8 brand in the United States provides members and fans of the PRCA with a discount of 15 percent off the best available rate at participating Super 8 hotels. More than 30,000 Super 8 Rodeo “discount cards” were distributed to PRCA members and fans this fall.

Fans who don’t have a card can still enjoy the 15 percent saving by booking their hotel rooms online at

“Travel costs, including lodging, are a major expense for our membership,” said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. “I’m excited about this program with the Super 8 brand because it helps our members save their hard-earned money. With almost 2,300 locations throughout the U.S., the Super 8 brand has locations near most of our nearly 600 sanctioned rodeos. They can be found in big cities as well as small communities – just like the PRCA.”



“Because of this community, people in the county made sure I was successful in the rodeo business. Then when you get older, you don’t want to let people down, so you start working harder.”

— Stock contractor John Growney, talking about developing his business in the Tehama County seat of Red Bluff, Calif.

6. News and notes from the rodeo trail

Two of the sport’s elite timed-event horses are injured and will be unable to compete at the Dec. 6-15 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Jade Corkill’s Cave Man (Fine Snip of Doc), the 2010 and newly crowned 2012 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association/American Quarter Horse Association Heeling Horse of the Year, was ruled out after an ultrasound determined that both of his hind suspensory ligaments had pulled away where they connect to the hock at the bone. Tie-down roper Shane Hanchey will be without the services of Reata (Smokin Reata) at the WNFR while he recovers from emergency colic surgery. (See the Nov. 23 issue of the ProRodeo Sports News for full coverage) … Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and officials of the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo held a press conference on Nov. 13 to announce that the rodeo –with its estimated $100 million economic impact – would continue to be held at the Denver Coliseum. There has been much discussion in recent years about moving the rodeo to a site near Denver International Airport, away from the historic stockyards area, which is now surrounded by homes and businesses. “We are not moving out of Denver at any time, period,” said Paul Andrews, president and CEO of the rodeo. “We are going to work to try to expand on the (downtown) site.” …Matthew McConaughey plays the role of a bull rider who leaves rodeo when his health begins to deteriorate in the independent feature film Dallas Buyers Club, which did on-location filming in Baton Rouge, La., on Nov. 15-16. Filmmakers photographed the crowd at the University Block and Bridle Club’s 75th annual rodeo as well as stuntmen riding bulls. The film, which also stars Jennifer Garner, is due to be released in 2013 … PRCA Gold Card member Bidwell “Bud” Alexander, well known in the Columbia River Circuit as a team roper, chute boss and mentor to rodeo judges, died Sept. 13. He was 69. A celebration of his life was held Sept. 23 at the Crook County Fairgrounds in Prineville, Ore., and the family requests that any memorial contributions be made to the Partners in Care Hospice, 2075 NE Wyatt Court, Bend, OR 97701. He is survived by his wife, PRCA timer Diana Alexander, and his son, Bobby, a PRCA team roper … Ken Frazier, who was inducted into the Walla Walla Frontier Days Cowboy Legends Hall of Fame earlier this year in recognition of his 27 years’ service as the rodeo’s chute boss, died Nov. 14, five days short of his 70th birthday. The funeral service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Nov. 20 at the Blue Mountain Memorial Gardens and a celebration of his life will be held at 11 a.m. Nov. 20 at the Walla Walla County Fairgrounds. Memorial gifts may be made in Frazier’s name to the Walla Walla Community Hospice, Walla Walla Community College Farrier Scholarship Fund or the Walla Walla Valley Cowboy Church. Frazier is survived by his wife, Judy, and son, Troy, who is a PRCA tie-down roper and team roper … The Cedar City (Utah) City Council voted unanimously on Nov. 14 to allow Steve Gilbert of Diamond G Rodeos to make upgrades to the Iron Rangers Arena where the Cedar City PRCA Championship Rodeo is held each year. The plan includes installation of six new bucking chutes, narrowing of the arena to 150 feet, construction of a new announcer’s box and the building of new calf pens … With the main floor of the Iowa’s Championship Rodeo Museum in Sidney completed, the Fremont County Historical Society held an open house Nov. 17. The formal opening is scheduled for July 13, 2013, just before the rodeo celebrates its 89thanniversary, rodeo museum committee member Lona Lewis told the Southwest Iowa News … The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has honored three of its long-time volunteers with inclusion in its Hall of Fame. Jackie Van De Walle, Richard “Tres” Kleberg III and the lateDanny Adams all gave freely of their time for more than a quarter of a century … Mike Brown, who recently stepped down as the rodeo coach at Weatherford (Texas) College after 30 years of service, was presented with a silver buckle during a meeting of the Weatherford College Rodeo Booster Club earlier this month that was devoted to giving him a proper send-off. “When I walked in and saw my family I knew something was up,” Brown told the Weatherford Democrat. “It was pretty special.” … The Reno Rodeo Foundation’s annual Denim Drive to provide clothing for kids in need is continuing through Dec. 17 with 150 drop-off locations in 13 northern Nevada counties, including more than 100 in Washoe County. Between cash and community donations, the foundation has given away more than $250,000 worth of clothing over the last six years … Salinas Mayor Dennis Donohue is asking the city council to earmark $160,000 for the restoration of artist Claes Oldenburg’s sculpture “Hat in Three Stages of Landing” outside the Salinas (Calif.) rodeo arena. “It’s an investment that will pay for itself,” Donohue told the Los Angeles Times. “I’m convinced it’s a destination opportunity. We can have a festival! If Gilroy (Calif.) does garlic, Salinas can do hats.” … In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Horse Heaven Rodeo in Kennewick, Wash., has donated $11,695 to community programs as part of its Tough Enough to Wear Pink initiative. Over the past seven years, the rodeo has contributed more than $112,000 to help uninsured women get free mammograms, cancer screenings, follow-up care and other forms of assistance.
