Jarrett ropes in big money on second night of DNCFR

Home - Uncategorized - Jarrett ropes in big money on second night of DNCFR

Ryan Jarrett hasn’t lived in Oklahoma all that long, but he realizes the significance of the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo taking place in his home state.

Jarrett, the 2005 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association all-around world champion, roped and tied his calf in 8.3 seconds for the fastest time in tie-down roping Friday night at Jim Norick Arena. That was good enough for second place in the opening go-round, a tenth of a second behind round winner Brett Fleming of Warden, Mont.

“It always feels good to win something close to the house,” said Jarrett of Comanche, Okla. “Being this rodeo is a national championship, it’s kind of like double-dipping.”

It’s a pretty nice double dip. Originally from Summerville, Ga., Jarrett earned $3,428 for his runner-up finish – Fleming, who competed Thursday night, won $4,525. More importantly, he’s in a good position heading into the second go-round, set for performances at 1 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

“Tomorrow afternoon I’ll just try to be close to the barrier and don’t take a bad throw,” he said, explaining the string barrier that allows the timed-event livestock a head start. “I need to be in there for a good position in the average. It’s about Sunday from here on out.”

The DNCFR features 24 contestants in each of the standard rodeo events – each cowboy and cowgirl will compete in two go-rounds. The top eight in the two-run aggregate qualify for the semifinals set to begin at 1 p.m. Sunday, where they slate will be cleaned and no times carried over. The top four times or scores qualify for the final round, where the slate is cleaned again. The fastest time or highest score will be crowned national champion Sunday afternoon.

It’s a title each of the contestants wants when the weekend concludes, and it’s what’s driving them through the rugged test of competition. For Jarrett, he’s taking this test on Buddy, a horse owned by Ronnie Austin of Ringling, Okla.

“I won fourth on him at Fort Worth (Texas),” said Jarrett, a three-time DNCFR qualifier. “I just take him to these deals that are close to the house. Ronnie’s been real good about me taking him and using him whenever. He likes to see someone doing good on his horse.”
