AFTER winning all around and barrel racing titles in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association last season, Willow Tree rider Nichole Fitzpatrick has given notice she will be one of the favourites for the Warwick Rodeo Australian Championships on October 22-25.

Fitzpatrick hasn’t competed in as many rodeo this season but showed with wins in both rounds of the barrel race at the Great Western Rodeo in Victoria at Easter she will be  a force at this year’s championship rodeo in Warwick.

She beat all around and barrel racing standings leader Shianne O’Donoghue-Kent in both rodeos.

O’Dongohue-Kent made up a lot of ground on the standings leaders when the Australian Professional Rodeo Association focus moved to the southern states at the start of the Christmas Run.

Fitzpatrick was 12th in barrel racing standings at the end of March and ninth in breakaway roping so is certain to finish in the top 15 and qualify for the finals at the Australian championships.

Jill Lyons from Gracemere was second behind O’Donoghue-Kent before the start of the Easter rodeos.

In breakaway roping, Warra rider Jane Fay has maintained a convincing lead in the standings and is likely to take the most points into the finals.
