A lot of cowboys and cowgirls won a lot of money at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo.
None of them earned more than Seth Glause, a three-time bull riding qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo from Rock Springs, Wyo. Glause, 23, of Rock Springs, Wyo., placed in all three go-rounds and won the average title in Denver with a three-ride cumulative score of 265 points.
He won $13,764.
The lion’s share of his prize money came on the aggregate title, but he won money every step of the way. Glause won the first round with a 92-point ride on Southwick Rodeo’s Phe Phe’s Secret; that was worth $3,989. His 86 was good enough for third place in the second round, and he followed that with an 87 to finish second in Sunday’s championship round.
It was a great run for one of the great young cowboys in the game.
“This is one of the most prestigious rodeos I’ve ever won,” Glause said. “I won the all-around here before, and Denver’s been pretty good to me. I had a good week here.”
