RODEOS IN THREE STATES ON SATURDAY

Rodeos in three states on Saturday

 

RODEOS at Narrandera, Whittlesea, Dubbo and Powranna will highlight a massive Saturday in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association this weekend. (February 25)

Competitors in all rodeos will be aiming for Championship Points to boost their chances of qualifying for the APRA National Finals on the last weekend in October at Warwick in Queensland.

The next major chances after this weekend for riders to give a major boost to their current Championship Points will be a string of rodeos on the Victorian long weekend in March and then in Victoria and Queensland at Easter.

THERE are large nominations for a Championship Points Rodeo on Saturday at Narrandera in New South Wales, including two of the best Bull Riders in the nation, Hayden Tyrrell and Toby Collins.

Collins has drawn the Garry McPhee bull Just For Fun and Collins is on Bar None. Tyrrell has already been placed in two rough stock events at the one rodeo this year.

Three of the more recent All Around Cowgirl Champions in the APRA, Stephanie Gard, Cherie O’Donoghue and her niece Shianne O’Donoghue-Kent will compete at Narrandera.

Current APRA Breakaway Roping record holder Candy Michaelis will travel from South Australia for the rodeo while All Around Cowboys  standings leader Shane Kenny will make the trip from Queensland.

Cameron Southern hails from Queensland and has nominated for the Junior Steer Ride.

The rodeo is for Championship Points in the APRA. The top 15 in each event will qualify for the National Finals in Warwick on the last weekend in October.
