2018 WNFR – Round 6 – The Canadians

What Happened With the Canadians Last Night:

Thurston Splits & Cassidy Never Quits –

World Champion Zeke Thurston split the round with Cort Scheer, both men recording 89.5 scores. Thurston’s ride was on the terrific mare from Powder River Rodeo—Miss Chestnut. 

Calgary Stampede’s Tootsie Roll carried Ty Breuer to 88 points and the first place cheque of $26,230. 2018 Canadian Champion, Richmond Champion, rode Kesler Rodeo’s Street Dance, a nine-time WNFR qualifier, to a 2/3/4 split with 87.5 points.

BB: Orin Larsen, who arguably has the greatest spur lick of any of the BB riders chasing the World title, scored 82.5 points tonight but was again out of the money. This tremendous competitor cannot catch a judge’s eye, but there are four more rounds to go. But, the round was won on a Canadian horse – and look at all the Maple Leaf ponies in the spotlight tonight:
