YEPPOON rider Errol Frain has taken a narrow lead in all around cowboy standings in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association.

Frain leads the steer wrestling standings and is eighth in team roping heeler standings.

After a short break from the sport, Frain is again seriously following the APRA circuit and has won more than twice as much money in his pet event, steer wrestling, as the next best, Alton Downs cowboy Shane Iker.

Frain travelled south and performed well on the Christmas Run in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia and also enjoyed success  on the New Year’s weekend at Alton Downs in Queensland.

Emerald rider Shane Kenny is second and Iker third in the all around.

In cowgirls standings, Victorian star Cherie O’Donoghue is the leader from her niece Shianne O’Donoghue-Kent, Moree rider Wendy Caban and Townsville cowgirl Suzie Fearon.

This month, the APRA has up to four rodeos a weekend across Australia.

There are 229 nominations for the Ballarat Rodeo on Saturday and 98 on the same day at Ross in Tasmania
