Lockington (Vic) riders Lee Kimber and Cherie O’Donoghue and Glen Kent from Strathalbyn (SA) have hit form at the right time in the battle for positions in Australian Professional Rodeo Association standings.

The top 15 in each of the eight events will qualify for the Warwick Rodeo Australian Championships on October 22-25.

For the first time in three decades, the finals will be in Warwick, one of the two towns with the biggest rodeos in the APRA.

Kimber won the steer wrestling at the Wilmington Rodeo in South Australia in late January and was second in the rope and tie behind winner and fellow Victorian Glen Perkins.

O’Donoghue was first in breakaway roping and is showing the form which could increase her lead over the next best for titles won in cowgirl ranks in the APRA.

Glen Kent continued his fine form in his home state to win the saddle bronc ride at Wilmington with a score of 82.

He won from Michael Krienke on 76, Strathalbyn rider David Stacey who scored 74  was third and Maldon (Vic) star Toby Collins fourth on 72.

Adam Hinkley won the bull ride at Wilmington with a score of 83, enough to win most open events in the APRA.

The next APRA rodeo is at Peterborough in South Australia on February 7.

There are rodeos at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales and Ballarat in Victoria on February 14.
