Steven Dent made a big move in the bareback riding world standings with his win in San Antonio, all while winning $17,030.
But he won’t catch the standings leader, Wes Stevenson, who also added another rodeo victory to his resume this weekend. Stevenson rode Carr Pro Rodeo’s Dirty Jacket for 87 points to win the short go-round and average titles at the San Angelo (Texas) Rodeo. Stevenson added $7,000 and moved his season earnings past $34,000.
He joins steer wrestler Olin Hannum, team ropers Tate and Dakota Kirchenschlager, saddle bronc rider Wade Sundell, tie-down roper Cory Solomon, barrel racer Brittany Pozzi and bull rider Nevada Newman as winners in San Angelo.
The short round in Tucson, Ariz., takes place today.
