Calgary, AB: Going into Day Eight and the last chance for Pool B competitors to make it strait to Showdown Sunday, we’ve got a few Canadian’s that have already made it and a number who are within reach.
Dusty LaValley leads all Bareback Riders with $12,000 thus far with $2,500 of which coming from an 88.5 marking today on Calgary’s Simply Marvelous while wearing the CBC Video Glasses. Clint Laye currently sits fourth with $5,000 won and will likely need another check tomorrow to make it back without help from Wild Card Saturday. Luke Creasy isn’t far behind with $3,000 won thus far.
Riley Warren sits fifth in the Tie Down Roping with $5,000 in winnings thus far. Hunter Herrin is $500 ahead of him for fourth.
In the Saddle Bronc, Dustin Flundra has picked up checks totalling $8,500 after three days. $2,500 of which came from an 85 today on Growney’s Holy Hoppin’ Hell. Sam Kelts won second today with an 87.5 on Calgary’s Mata Fact and sits in a tie for sixth with $4,500 won.
Lindsay Sears and Cranna Roberts both have won a check so far but need to win tomorrow if they want to avoid another run on Saturday.
In the Bull Riding, Jody Turner has yet to cover a bull. Aaron Roy has $4,500 won thus far but was taken out of the arena on a stretcher after getting stepped on by Sawyer’s big jersey looking bull they call Gretzky. This is the latest update from Jason Davidson on Twitter.
