LAS VEGAS – Ryder Wright doesn’t intend to leave the winner’s circle – perhaps for the duration of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.  Wright entered some rarified air in Round 4.  Wright’s 85.5-point trip on Flying 5 Rodeo’s Sundance earned the 18-year-old his fourth consecutive WNFR round win, which is something only two other men in roughstock events have ever accomplished – saddle bronc riding brothers Billy and Robert Etbauer.
