Good crowds and tough rodeo competition were the focus of this weekend's Stockyards Championship Rodeo in Fort Worth's Historic Cowtown Coliseum. Wyatt Muggli was the high money cowboy in 2016, and he is off to a quick start in 2017. The Weatherford cowboy won Friday night's tie-down roping with a 10.85, and he teamed up with Colton Brittain to win the team roping with a 5.34. His total take for the weekend was $712.25.
But it was Ezekiel Mitchell from Baytown that banked the most money for the weekend winning the bull riding both nights, earning $1,000. He rode T-RexFriday night for 83 points and Hammerhead for 84 points Saturday night.
Josh Dunn from Grandview had the fastest run in the tie-down Saturday night, winning with a 9.28, paying him $349.68. In the team roping, JT Prather and Tyler Ishman stretched their steer in 5.05 to win the team roping and $458.70. Two-time world champion header Chad Masters was on hand Friday night, placing second with Coy Brittain and third with Wyatt Cox to win $397.54.
Hannah Wallace from Tolar had the fastest run of the weekend in the breakaway roping winning $349.68 with a 1.55 Saturday night. The ropers had some problems Friday night with misses and broken barriers, but Brooke Jordan from Covington hung on for the win with a 12.27, which included a penalty for a broken barrier. She won $349.68.
