Rookie Sensations Moreira and Santos Propel Team Can-Am to Second Shutout Victory of PBR’s New Team Tournament

Team Can-Am: 173.25 points    
Team Union Home Mortgage: 0 points
LAS VEGAS – With just two days of competition remaining in Division A at the Pendleton Whisky Let ‘Er Buck Saloon at South Point Arena in Las Vegas, the first game of Challenge Day 4 for the PBR Monster Energy Team Challenge, presented by U.S. Border Patrol, was a highly-anticipated bubble match, pitting No. 3 Team Can-Am against No. 4 Team Union Home Mortgage.

In a unanimous decision, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Board of Directors has suspended the 2020 NRHA World Title race.
Historically, NRHA World Titles, awarded in open, non pro, and youth divisions, are coveted recognition for horses and riders. The international race allows aged reining horses a chance in the spotlight and highlights reiners from around the globe.

In compliance with all guidelines in place with government entities and to additional guidelines set by facilities where shows are held, after a period of uncertainty, the ERCHA Board is pleased to announce that competition will resume.

Stetson Wright Captains Team Las Vegas to Third Consecutive Game Win with Shutout Victory on Challenge Day 3 of New PBR Team Tournament
Team Las Vegas: 174.75 points
Team Wrangler: 0 points
LAS VEGAS – Team Las Vegas began Challenge Day 3 of PBR’s new televised team tournament with a bang, riding to its second shutout victory and improving to 3-0 in Division A. Reigning PRCA All-Around Champion and Captain Stetson Wright (Milford, Utah) headlined his team’s dominating win inside the Pendleton Whisky Let ‘Er Buck Saloon at South Point Arena in Las Vegas with an 87.5-point trip aboard Dynamite Cap (Hart Cattle Co./Randy Wood). After delivering his first qualified ride of the uniquely formatted PBR Monster Energy Team Challenge, presented by U.S. Border Patrol on Saturday evening, Chase Dougherty’s (Canby, Oregon) momentum continued. The Oregon cowboy contributed the team’s second score, an 87.25-point ride aboard Silent Night (Hart Cattle Co./Randy Wood). The 174.75-0 win allowed Team Las Vegas to maintain their No. 2 rank in Division A. They trail No. 1 Team Cooper Tires, also with three wins, by 324 points in the overall event aggregate. Team Las Vegas will next go head-to-head against Team Can-Am on Challenge Day 4 on Friday, June 12. After a hard-fought loss on Challenge Day 1 when it was narrowly bested by Team Union Home Mortgage by 79.75 points, Team Wrangler has been on a downhill skid, shut out in its final two games. Ranked last in the Division A standings, the contingent captained by Colten Jesse (Konawa, Oklahoma) will look to right its course and advance to the championships in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, when the league will welcome back fans to the arena, when they next face off against Division A’s No. 1-ranked roster, Team Cooper Tires.

Stetson Lawrence was about as surprised as those watching at home when he learned that his Team Cooper Tires teammate Sage Kimzey would not be getting on his second bull on Saturday night.
The reigning six-time PRCA champion had aggravated a chronic right elbow injury during his 3.44-second buckoff against Skitso in Round 1 of Team Cooper Tires game against Team YETI and was unable to continue.
