Wrights dominate saddle bronc riding at Cody Stampede
CODY, Wyo., July 4, 2016 --- The 97th annual Cody Stampede came to a close on July 4th with a new slate of saddle bronc riders at the top of the leaderboard.
The top four positions changed with the winners having a combined 22 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) qualifications and three world titles. All of them are related and come from the same hometown. It’s no surprise that they all share the same last name -- Wright.
Winning the rodeo with an 88-point ride was four-time NFR qualifier Jake Wright, who is currently 5th in the world standings. He rode Frontier Rodeo’s horse Short Stop to add $8,686 to his season earnings. Just a half-point behind him was older brother Cody who has two world titles and 12 NFR qualifications to his credit. Cody is 24th in the world standings and is hoping to move up and make the trip to Las Vegas to compete next December. The $6,659 he got here will certainly help.
Finishing in a tie for third was Jesse, Jake’s twin brother and Rusty, Cody’s oldest son. They each had 86 point rides to win $4,053. Jesse has competed at the NFR five times and left with a world title in 2012. He is currently 31st in the world standings.
Rusty qualified for his first NFR last year and finished the season in 3rd place. He is well on his way to his second qualification setting in third place prior to the Cody Stampede. When it was all said and done, the Wrights are going to deposit $23,451 in their Milford, Utah, bank accounts.
In the bareback riding, it was a world champion horse that took center stage on the Fourth. Full Baggage, owned by Frontier Rodeo was the bareback horse of the year in 2011 and 2013 and was the reserve champion last year.
When Joel Schlegel from Burns, Colo., found out that was the horse he would ride here, he didn’t know whether to be scared, excited or just nervous. He was a little of all three, but said he knew if he did his job and stayed on, he had an opportunity to be a bunch of points.
That is exactly what happened for the Mountain States Circuit contender. Schlegel was 87 points at the Stampede Arena on Monday to win $10,540. This was the biggest win of his career.
The 98th Anniversary of the Cody Stampede will be held over the 2017 Fourth-of-July holiday. More information will be available at www.codystampederodeo.com.
