Vold makes it a hat trick in Vegas

LAS VEGAS – Bareback rider Jake Vold is doing his best Ryder Wright impression. Wright won four straight saddle bronc riding rounds outright to open this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER, and Vold has nearly equaled that in his event.  The Ponoka, Alberta, cowboy won his third straight round Tuesday night with an 85.5-point trip on Burch Rodeo’s Jim Dandy.  Vold became just the eighth bareback rider in NFR history to win three straight rounds.
