Sage Newman rides Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Code Blue for 87.5 points Thursday night to take the saddle bronc riding lead at the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo.

SAN ANGELO, Texas – Sage Newman didn’t know much about the horse he had drawn for Thursday’s fifth performance of the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo.

The one thing he trusted, though, was the event’s livestock producer, Dallas-based Pete Carr Pro Rodeo. It paid off rather well for the three-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier from Melstone, Montana. He rode Carr’s Code Blue for 87.5 points to take the saddle bronc riding lead.

“When you come to a Pete Carr rodeo, there’s always good horses,” said Newman, the 2023 reserve world champion who finished last year’s campaign with just shy of $400,000. “Pete has a lot of good ones, so you have a chance to win every time. I get along with Pete’s horses really well, and hopefully it keeps going that way.”

The odds of him returning for the April 19 Championship Friday are solid, and he expects the opportunity to be just as good for him when the titles are given away in a week.

“I talked to (fellow bronc rider) Logan Cook about the horse, and he said he was just a pretty good one,” Newman said. “He told me the rein and that (the horse) took some rein, so I decided to come try him, and I’m glad it worked out.

“(Code Blue) hung his head in the neck rope a little bit and kind of stumbled there at the start, but then he circled around to the right and matched up pretty well with me. I was happy.”

He should be. West Texas is a great place to be in April, and he’s had a ton of success in the Lone Star State over the past few years. In 2022, Newman won RodeoHouston after riding another Carr bucking horse; he matched moves with Billie for 93 points to claim the title and the $50,000 top prize.

The Montana bronc buster closed out his third straight NFR with more than $150,000 in earnings over 10 days in Las Vegas. He finished second only to four-time titlist Zeke Thurston and carried a boatload of momentum into the 2024 campaign. While he’s found some success, he’s 11th on the money list. He understands, though, that there is a lot of rodeo yet to be played this season.

“I’m just going to keep plucking away at it,” he said. “I don’t really want to look at the money side of it. I need to do my job every time and make the best of it every time, and I’ll just let the chips fall where they may. That’s what it’s all about.”

Of course, it helps to compete in front of a loud and vibrant crowd that helps Foster Communications Coliseum burst at the seams when the rodeo is in town.

“You have that little, confined building, and the crowd loves it here,” Newman said. “They’re a rodeo crowd with rodeo-type people, and they know a lot about rodeo. They just love the energy, and I love the energy. It’s truly unreal, so it’s always fun to come back here.”

He will return, and he has plans to hold the San Angelo title when he does.
