Call it karma or coincidence or whatever you want, but I find it kind of cool:
I posted the story on TwisTED Rodeo today about Stockton Graves’ qualification to the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo, and the Oklahoma cowboy won the first round of steer wrestling during Super Series III at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Monday night.
Graves posted a 4.5-second run to win the round and earn $2,000. He’s well on his way to qualifying for the next round in the bracketed format. He joined barrel racer Lindsay Sears, bull rider Howdy Cloud, tie-down roper Cory Solomon, bareback rider Bo Casper, team ropers Travis Tryan and Rich Skelton, and saddle bronc rider J.J. Elshere, who all earned go-round wins.
They return for the second go-round Tuesday evening, and they’ll bring plenty of firepower to the show.
