Carlee Pierce likes breaking records. Last December, Carlee set a new standard with an arena-record run of 13.46-second run during the fifth go-round at her first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
On Friday night, Pierce and her 5-year-old gelding, Hammer, posted a 14.214-second run in Edmonton, Alberta, to set an arena record at the Canadian Finals Rodeo. She won the third go-round and added $11,398. She has won $22,504 in three runs at the CFR and has pushed her Canadian earnings to $54,887.
“Tonight was amazing,” Carlee said Friday night. “I was 11th on the ground, and I knew it was a fast round. I told Hammer we need to make a solid run and just go for it, and he held up his end if the deal and set the new CFR arena record.”
