DENVER, Colorado — Canadian Bareback Riders Luke Creasy and Kody Lamb are first and second after the first performance of the National Western Stock Show Rodeo.
Creasy, who currently sits 13th in the PRCA World Standings, was 83 points on a familiar foe, Calgary Stampede’s Muffled Cries to lead thus far. Lamb, of Sherwood Park, AB was 79 points on another Calgary Stampede Horse, Maiden Chick to sit second.
“It’s great to start the winter run healthy.” Said Creasy. “I’m excited for everything coming up and glad to draw a good one here in Denver. There’s nothing like riding an Alberta grown horse at a show like Denver.”
Some bad luck and broken bones have kept the Brownfield, AB cowboy from his first NFR in the past few years. Holding steady for the rest of the year would get him there.
Creasy and Lamb compete on their second horses Friday afternoon with their hopes of making the finals on the 26th of January.
Another Calgary Stampede horse took their cowboy to the top of the leaderboard on night one, it was Jake Wright who scored 83 on Redon Acres to beat his older brother Cody by six points.
Friday January 17th features two rodeo performances at 2 and 7:30pm.
