Matt Shiozawa posted a 6.9-second time Thursday night, which tied the previous Round 1 record set by Cody Ohl in 2004. Brazile wasted little time taking the record for himself.

Brazile set the record with a little help from his No. 1 sorrel horse, Deputy. “He’s the reason I’m still competitive at 39,” said Brazile, who’s now won a record 60 National Finals go-rounds in tie-down roping, team roping and steer roping.

Breding, a 23-year-old from Edgar, is making his second NFR appearance. He enters the rich rodeo in second place among bull riders with 2015 earnings of $122,041. That trails leader Sage Kinzey by about $52,000, and that’s not much at a 10-performance event that features a payout of $26,230 for first place each night.

Each December, the top 15 bareback riders, steer wrestlers, team roping competitors, saddle bronco riders, tie-down ropers, barrel racers, and bull riders qualify to compete in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

Sage Kimzey, the defending world champion and world standings leader, was bucked off, allowing Breding – who entered Las Vegas second – to gain $26,231 on Kimzey in the world standings. Breding now trails Kimzey by less than one round win. However, his competing status for the rest of the WNFR is in doubt.

This was Schneeberger’s 20th consecutive trip to Cheyenne. He has had success here before and even come close to winning the title but saw it slip from his grasp at the last minute.

“I thought it (winning the title) could happen, but I didn’t think about winning it until the last roper started having a bit of trouble,” he said. The Oklahoma cowboy has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas 11 times, but after shoulder surgery earlier this year, he is focusing on rodeos close to home.

At the opposite end of the spectrum was bull rider Roscoe Jarboe. The 20-year-old Idaho cowboy is in his rookie season in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). He was ranked 14th in the world championship standings and led the rookie standings earlier this week. After earning more than $15,000 in Cheyenne, he’s in seventh and in a much better position to qualify for his first NFR. Jarboe is also in the lead in the Resistol Rookie Standings in the bull riding.

The Nashville star says he decided to expand his Redneck Riviera apparel imprint into a Las Vegas music club after he kept having to ask a concierge or a bellman, “Hey man, where can I find a great live country band on a Tuesday night?”


“I want to get up and play with somebody. I want to hear some guys pick and really play. I realize that was a real underserved thing in Las Vegas,” says the singer best known as half of Big & Rich.

The music club will debut later this year in front of Bally’s, at the Grand Bazaar Shops. Rich says he would like to see the 400- to 500-capacity club open in time for the Dec. 1-10 National Finals Rodeo. A Nashville counterpart will open soon after the Las Vegas location.

The second-floor club will have retractable doors to an open-air patio. “Everybody walking by and going to the Grand Bazaar will hear live country music. Real human beings playing real country music, blasting out through those windows. Not unlike Nashville, not unlike Austin, Dallas, places like that, where you can walk around and hear that energy,” he says.

Months after Northlands and the Oilers Entertainment Group (OEG) made an unsuccessful bid to host the Canadian Finals Rodeo, it was announced that the massive event would be heading to Saskatchewan for three years starting in 2017.

In a press release, The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association (CPRA) and the City of Saskatoon signed a memorandum of understanding to host the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Saskatoon from 2017 to 2019.

The move came after CPRA did not accept a joint offer to host the CFR from OEG and Northlands back in March, 2016. That proposal would move the Canadian Finals Rodeo to Rogers Place, and keep Farm Fair International at the Northlands Expo Centre.

The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association and the City of Saskatoon announced in July a memorandum of understanding had been signed for the national rodeo event to be held in Saskatoon. The decision came after the CPRA did not accept a joint offer from the Oilers Entertainment Group and Northlands to host the finals in Edmonton, where the event had been held for four decades.

Ford said SaskTel Centre officials were notified shortly after the Saskatoon announcement of changes in the CPRA that could prevent the event from moving from Edmonton. A new executive director was appointed to the organization, which prompted SaskTel Centre staff to take a wait-and-see approach, he said.

“For us, the good thing is it never went on sale,” Ford said. “It was an event we would have loved to host and we would have loved hosting it in Saskatoon.”

Ford could not confirm which Edmonton arena will be hosting the 2017 event, but said Northlands Coliseum had been lobbying since July to keep the rodeo finals.

The club will also feature the Heroes Bar, staffed by veterans and offering the first drink free to active-duty military and veterans. “I hope they drink me out of beer every night,” Rich says.

Rich, 42, says he has sold “thousands and thousands” of Redneck Riviera-branded boots and related apparel in the past three years in his partnership with Acumen Brands’ Country Outfitter.

“Redneck Riviera” has become more closely associated with Biloxi, Mississippi, and the Gulf Coast since casinos sprouted there. But Rich says it was “a phrase I’ve used my entire life,” and a definition he extends all the way to Lake Havasu, Arizona.
