SANGER, CALIF. – The 16th Annual Doyle W. Hoskins Memorial Team Roping and 14th Annual Barrel Race were held July 11th & 12th at the S Bar J Arena.

It’s hard to believe we have been putting on this Memorial for 16 years. We love being able to celebrate the life of a man who was so passionate about roping, riding, family, friends, and life. This year was a little extra challenging with the pandemic and not even knowing until two weeks prior whether or not we could have the event. Thanks to a great friend who has a great private facility we were able to pull it off. Steve Simons, you not only have great cattle, an amazing crew and facility; you also have top-notch barrel racing ground. With a new location this year we were able to meet a new group of supporters who we hope come see us when we are back in Salinas in 2021. It was a hot weekend with temperatures reaching 111. Even though we loved the Sanger facility, we are excited about going back to the cooler temperatures on the coast next year in Salinas.
This event would not be possible without our generous sponsors Joey and Gina Acevedo, Serv Aero Engineering, Stan Branco with Zestera, Best Ever Pads, My Automotive Group, Scott Thomas Saddlery, and Jodi Reese Designs.
The roping on Saturday ran amazing thanks to our efficient office crew. Thank you so much to Toni Machado, Cory Couch and Lee Ann Hansen for doing such a wonderful job. Thank you to Billy Butler and Blaine Lockett for flagging all day, you guys did a fantastic job. The ground for the barrel race Sunday was fantastic! Thank you Darrick Hoskins for driving the tractor for us and making the ground superb. A special shout out to Allie Hoskins and Sheanna DeForest for all your help with announcing, taking entries, running the office, doing the draws, and making sure everything ran smoothly for the race. We would also like to thank Candy Forsberg, JD Escobar, McKenna Wood, Heather Luther, Sherry Morris, Rebecca Grimes, CJ DeForest, Doyle Hoskins, Alan Berryessa, Nadene Berryessa and anyone else that opened a gate, picked up a hat or set up a barrel, you all helped make our barrel race run smoothly.
