SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Feb. 13, 2016) --- For the past three years, Joe Frost from Randlett, Utah, has competed at the San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo and had to juggle his education and college rodeo schedule with riding bulls in the AT&T Center.

This year his full attention is on riding bulls and that is paying off. Frost is the big money earner in the first bracket of competition at $5,703. While he has always left here with a check, that is more money than he won here the first two years combined. Last year, he finished third here and collected $17,645.

That money helped Frost qualify for his second consecutive Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) where he finished the year in sixth place. He is currently ranked second in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world standings.

Frost’s success here came by winning third in the first round and finishing at the top of the leaderboard in the second and third rounds where he had identical scores of 85 points. His third round win came aboard Frontier Rodeo’s After All at the Saturday matinee performance.

There was one other contestant in the first bracket that earned over $5,000. Ivy Conrado, from Hudson, Colo., earned $5,132 in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association barrel race. Conrado, who leads the world standings is coming off of a big win at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo and a second-place finish at the National Western Stock Show Rodeo in Denver. Conrado is having the best season of her career and a San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo win would certainly help her qualify for her first NFR.

The second bracket started at the Saturday night performance. Former San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo scholarship winner, Ace Slone win the tie-down roping. Slone, who makes his home just 80 miles away in Cuero, Texas, roped and tied his calf in 7.8 seconds to win $2,281.

The fifth performance of the San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo will start at 1 p.m. on Sunday and include contestants from bracket 2 competing in their second round.

Joe Frost Reaches Goal, Wins First WCC Event

         RAPID CITY, S.D. – Joe Frost gained a little revenge and achieved a goal by winning Wednesday night’s Wrangler Champions Challenge presented by Justin Boots at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.

          Frost rode for 84 points on New Frontier Rodeo's Ur Next to beat a talented field. He edged Shane Proctor and Ty Wallace by one point, while Sage Kimzey, the two-time defending world champion, was fourth with a 78-point ride.

          “I knew that bull was a good one,” Frost said of Ur Next. “I got on him two years ago in Bennington, Kan., and he bucked me off about the same time the gate came open.”

          Frost was excited when he saw the draw and anxious for the rematch with Ur Next.

          “I told my girlfriend (Kylie Cahoy) if I could ride him, I’d probably win,” he said. “I was just a little more ready when I nodded my head this time.”

          Ur Next competed at the 2015 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER.

          “He had a couple of really good trips at the Finals in December and bucked off both guys,” Frost said.

          The 23-year-old native of Randlett, Utah, earned $3,944 for winning the one-header. He’s competing for Team Wrangler in the Champions Challenge series.

          “That sure is a good check for one night,” he said. “That’s the first time I’ve won a Champions Challenge. I’ve won some checks at these events before, but I’m kind of tickled to get a win under my belt. I’ve really been wanting to win one of these.”

          Frost graduated from Oklahoma Panhandle State University (Goodwell) with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business in May 2015. He finished sixth in the world standings last season with $177,793, after coming in second behind Kimzey the year before; he was also second in the average at the 2014 WNFR behind Kimzey.

          At the 2015 WNFR, he won two rounds and pocketed nearly $94,000 but wasn’t satisfied.

          “I did pretty well there, but I was still disappointed in myself,” Frost said. “I left Vegas with the biggest learning experience of my career. I learned to never go in without total faith in myself. I guess I didn’t think I could catch Sage and that lowered my mentality and I didn’t ride as well as I could’ve. But with all the money at the Finals, it’s possible to overtake any lead.”

          So how did that affect his approach to this season?

          “That has lit a fire under me,” Frost said. “I’m pulling out all the stops and going as hard as I can this year. My goal is to be the PRCA world champion.”

           Don’t ever count Frost out. The athletic and versatile 6-foot, 170-pounder won the prestigious Linderman Award in 2014 while competing in bull riding, steer wrestling and tie-down roping.

          He’s up Thursday at the Xtreme Bulls event in Bismarck, N.D., will return to Rapid City Friday for the Black Hills Stock Show Rodeo and is up in the short round Saturday at the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in Fort Worth, Texas.

          Other winners Wednesday at the $97,200 rodeo were bareback rider Caleb Bennett (86.5 points on C5 Rodeo's Virgil), steer wrestler Tyler Waguespack (4.2 seconds), team ropers Luke Brown and Jake Long (4.7 seconds), saddle bronc rider Rusty Wright (86 points on Burch Rodeo's Lunatic From Hell), tie-down roper Ryan Jarrett (7.3 seconds) and barrel racer Megan Swint (12.64 seconds).

Joe Frost a contender at National Western Stock Show Rodeo

 

 

By Susan Kanode

For the National Western Stock Show

 

            DENVER (January 17, 2016) --- While the 2016 rodeo season started last October, the winter building rodeos starting with the National Western Stock Show here traditionally kick off the year.

            The buildings offer big prize money and opportunities to jump into the world standings. If a contestant wins here, it gives them a chance to build momentum and stay among the top 15 in the world standings who qualify for rodeo’s championsips, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) held in Las Vegas in December.

            A cowboy that knows that well is Joe Frost from Randlett, Utah. Two years ago, he won the bull riding title at another building rodeo in Fort Worth, Texas, qualified for the NFR and finished second in the world standings. He competed at the NFR again last year and finished the season in sixth place.

            The cousin of the late world champion bull rider Lane Frost is looking to add a gold buckle of his own to the families collection. He has started off the new year very well here in Denver and is one of three men to have ridden two bulls.

            Frost competed in the first round on Sunday night scoring 87 points on Mo Betta Rodeo’s Broadway Joe. That is currently in a tie for first place with Bart Miller from Pleasanton, Neb. Then at the Monday matinee performance Frost came back and rode another bull from Mo Betta named Red Power and while that isn’t likely to place in the round, it put him second in the overall standings with a total score of 162 points.

            Cody Campbell, from Summerville, Ore., leads the bull riding in the Denver Coliseum with a total score of 167.5 points. Colorado’s own Josh Koschel from Nunn is in third place with 159 points. Koschel has just returned to action after sustaining a broken leg during the Greeley (Colo.) Independence Stampede last July.

            All three of these men are likely to qualify for the U.S. Bank Championship Finals on Sunday, Jan. 24. A win here could mean a big boost to their bank account as well as an opportunity to move into the world standings. Denver’s rodeo features nearly half a million dollars in prize money and is one of the most prestigious on the circuit. The National Western Stock Show is in its 110th year and with that history comes a legacy of promoting and preserving the Western lifestyle.

.            Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association action continues in the Denver Coliseum on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

College National Finals Rodeo..1st Performance Results

 

Colorado Native represents Texas College at College National Finals Rodeo well

 

            CASPER, Wyo. (June 16, 2015) –  After three years of competing in the breakaway roping for Western Texas College (Snyder), Tamara Tunink from Fowler, Colo., finally qualified for her first College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR).

            She came into the Casper Events Center with renewed confidence after being reserve champion in the Southwest Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. That confidence has served her well as she took the early lead in her signature event with a total time of 9.1 seconds on three head. Her fastest of three runs here was in the first round last Sunday where she stopped the clock in 2.6 seconds. That tied her for eighth place.

            She came back during slack competition with a 3.1. Then on Tuesday night, she had a 3.4. Last year, a total time of 9.1 qualified for the finals here in fourth place, so Tunink is looking good for a championship round qualification this year.

            “She is the kind of student athlete that you want,” her coach Greg Rhodes said. “She works as hard in the classroom as she does in the arena. She’s on-time, dedicated and willing to do anything. She throws a perfect loop and I’m pleased to see her confident and doing well here.”

            Tunink is majoring in ag business and plans to transfer to Texas Tech University next fall to complete her education. She has one year of eligibility left and will be hoping for a second CNFR qualification next year.

            Clark Adcock from the University of Tennessee – Martin is having a great CNFR. Adcock who just received his Bachelor’s degree is leading the overall standings in the tie-down roping with a total time of 33.6 seconds. He was also successful in two rounds of team roping.
