OAKDALE, CALIF. – The Oakdale 10 Steer was great this year with the best weather we have had in years. More ropers came out to compete and support the oldest 10 Steer still going. All the event entries were up making the average winnings even greater. Our beloved chute boss, Carlos Guajardo, got injured before the weekend events and CTRA and ropers were able to raise over $1,500 towards his recovery. Todd Hampton donated portable panels for auction towards Carlos’ fund. Thank you to everyone who donated. The headliner for the weekend was the 10 Steer Roping that this year was won by Colt Piazza and Joseph Shawnego. They roped their 10 steers in 101.80 seconds and pocketed $3,200 each plus saddles. The Phil Stadtler Memorial continues to be a huge draw with 186 teams competing this year. Blake Hirdes heeled for Brody Nelson to take the win, $2,300 each plus saddles. We had 50 dummy roping contestants with neat prizes in all three divisions (1st buckles, 2nd ropes, 3rd hats). All the little buckaroos received a goody bag filled with sunglasses, squirt guns, bubbles, poppers, snacks and candy. We hope to keep the added money for years to come with the goal to draw ropers to “the Cowboy Capital of the World.” We could not do any of this without our sponsors and the CTRA board. Our board openhandedly donates their time and energy to put on a successful family-friendly roping weekend.

We broke last year’s turn out record with the highest number of entries in all events. In addition to the All Girl Breakaway and Team Roping, we brought back the All Girl Branding for the second year in a row. On Saturday August 5th, we kicked the day off with an ACTRA team roping open to all ropers (men and women). The #8 Handicap had 165 teams and the Mixed had 70 teams. Women ropers stayed later to compete in a 4 Woman Team Branding. The star of the show was our main event on Sunday, August 6th. We were so excited about the turnout as we had 64 breakaway ropers and 188 teams in the team roping. Maggie Usher took home the title of California’s Richest 2023 Champion Breakaway Roper. She added a Cactus saddle to her tackroom, sponsored by MY Cars, along with other prizes and $3,635 cash. She also qualified to compete at the Rope for the Crown in Las Vegas this December. Maggie’s average was 13.26 on 4. Way to go Maggie! During the breakaway, we were very honored to present the Fast Time buckle of the day in memory of Blaire Strohn, a beloved cowgirl from San Benito County. Anyone that knew Blaire knew she was coming for you when she backed in the box so it was only fitting to give a Fast Time buckle in her honor at her hometown arena. This buckle was donated by Brennan and Stacey Porteur and presented by Blaire’s brother, Blane Strohn. Sage Pearce was our Fast Time champion with a 2.57 run. Our team roping had some tough competition but Sadie Grant and Alison Grantham were the 2023 California’s Richest Champion Maggie Usher was the winner of the Breakaway Roping and is being presented her saddle by California’s Richest event producer, Danielle Porteur Johnson. – Phil Doyle Photo See CALIFORNIA’S RICHEST On Page 16

The two rodeo organizations are teaming up to bring a $10,000 bonus to the 2024 College National Finals Rodeo next June. “This is another huge step to growing the sport of rodeo among college athletes and giving them an opportunity to qualify for WCRA events,” said WCRA President Bobby Mote. “We are ecstatic to be the presenting sponsor of the Armband Ceremony and offer this $10,000 bonus opportunity to college athletes. We are anxious to see college rodeo athletes qualify for the chance to compete for the $1 Million Triple Crown of Rodeo Bonus.” The “WCRA College Trifecta” will pay a $10,000 cash bonus to any NIRA athlete who wins their respective discipline in their region and wins at least one go-round of competition at the CNFR in the same discipline and completes the “Trifecta” by winning the World Championship in that discipline. The athlete must have nominated their ride or run with WCRA at the CNFR to be eligible for the bonus. The following NIRA disciplines are eligible: bareback riding, steer wrestling, barrel racing, breakaway roping, tiedown roping, saddle bronc riding, heading, heeling, and Acey Pinkston competing at a WCRA event. – Photo by Bullstock Media bull riding. If more than one athlete completes the trifecta, then those athletes will split the bonus. “NIRA is thrilled to announce its exciting partnership with WCRA, which promises to open new doors of opportunity for our college rodeo athletes,” said Jim Dewey Brown NIRA Commissioner. “WCRA’s unwavering commitment to elevating the world of rodeo ensures that our athletes will continue to thrive in a realm of endless possibilities.” Athletes can use code “COLLEGE24” when nominating and receive 25% off. The code is limited to four nominations and can be used to nominate any future event. The code is valid until May 2024. Since launching in May of 2018, the WCRA and its partners have awarded more than $15,700,000 in new money to rodeo athletes.

On July 30, the Sulphur, La., cowboy won the prestigious Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days in record-setting fashion. He added a Cinch Playoffs title to his resume on Sunday at the Washington State Fair Pro Rodeo. Sanford clinched the win with an 89-point ride on Calgary Stampede’s Dandy Delight in the four-man sudden death finals. “This is great, just to keep that momentum going from Cheyenne,” said Sanford, 25. “It is very crucial this time of the year. I had never been on that horse, but my good buddy Damian (Brennan) had been on him in Calgary last year and he told me it was a good draw, so I was excited to get on him.” And Dandy Delight didn’t disappoint. “He was electric,” Sanford said. “I didn’t know which way he was going. I just tried to stay in the middle.” Sanford earned $13,000 for his finals-winning ride, and the timing could not have been better. Sanford entered the Cinch Playoffs in Puyallup 19th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $100,374. “My game plan this past month is that I haven’t looked at the world standings and that’s going to continue to be my game plan,” Sanford said. Sanford now qualified for an even bigger payday in Sioux Falls, S.D., Sept. 28-30. The contestants in Sioux Falls will include the top four finishers from each event at the Cinch Playoffs in Puyallup, and the top eight out of the standings of the Playoff Series presented by Pendleton Whisky. Last September, the PRCA, the State of South Dakota, Experience Sioux Falls and Cinch announced the Cinch Playoffs will have athletes competing for the Governor’s Cup and vying for the $1.1 million purse, Sept. 28-30, 2023, at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls. It will be the richest rodeo in South Dakota history. The PRCA regular season concludes on Sept. 30. “This is just a dream come true,” Sanford said. “I’m just blessed with this life and blessed to have as much success as I have had. I’m just going to keep nodding my head and doing my job. I absolutely have to pinch myself. I feel like I’m dreaming. The main goal was to get (qualified) for Sioux Falls. A good win there could put me in a good spot for that world championship and that’s the ultimate goal.” Other winners at the $648,000 Cinch Playoffs rodeo were bareback rider Jayco Roper (91 points on Calgary Stampede’s Agent Lynx); steer wrestler Dalton Massey (3.5 seconds); team ropers Tyler Wade/Wesley Thorp (4.9 seconds); tie-down roper Riley Webb (7.6 seconds); breakaway roper Maddy Deerman (3.1 seconds); barrel racer Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi (13.99 seconds); and bull rider Trey Kimzey (84 points on Wayne Vold Rodeo’s Hard Not to Get). Roper and Clayton Biglow had identical 91-point rides in the finals, but Roper won the tiebreaker because he had a higher score than Biglow in the two-head average.
