The final two performances of the American Royal Rodeo take place Friday and Saturday night in Kansas City.
While there was plenty of action last weekend, there’s no letting up over the final two nights. There are still plenty of top names in the business that will be showcasing their talents inside Kemper Arena.
Some of those are the great animal athletes that will be featured in December at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
– Bareback horses: Stace Smith Pro Rodeo’s R.D. Mercer, Size Matters and Wild Flower; Smith, Harper and Morgan’s Jesse’s Girl; and Korkow Rodeo’s Quittin’ Time.
– Saddle broncs: Smith’s Pretty Boy, Big Jet, Justin’s Sock Dancer, Goin’ South and Restol’s Top Hat; and Smith, Harper and Morgan’s Flaming Desire and Painted Feather.
– Bulls: Smith’s Category 5 and Exotic Justin; and Smith, Harper and Morgan’s Smilin’ Bill.
There are plenty of great human athletes in the mix, but these great animals have earned top billing. Today they get it.
