CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas –In front of an electric crowd inside the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, rodeo athletes from across the globe were crowned champions and walked away with upwards of $553,000. The Triple Crown of Rodeo Round saw three TCR eligible athletes enter the TCR Round, where all of the eligible athletes for the $1 million bonus were eliminated.
 
The Triple Crown of Rodeo is an annual bonus that pays a $1 Million cash award to any one athlete or collection of athletes who win first place in any three consecutive WCRA Major Rodeos.

Helen Kleberg Groves passed away peacefully at home in San Antonio, Texas on Friday, May 6, 2022. She was born 94 years prior in the same city on October 20, 1927, the only child of Robert Justus Kleberg, Jr. and Helen Campbell Kleberg.

Raised on the King Ranch, “Helenita” went on to graduate from Foxcroft School in Middleburg, Virginia and attended Vassar College. From there she began her long, fascinating, and varied life. She had many passions in life, but ranching, fine horses, and family were central. Her abiding love of the Ranch, its land, livestock, and the people who worked there, formed the foundation for all she did. She was a crack shot with her Colt pistol, often bettering the men around her and continued to be a keen and accurate dove and quail hunter into her nineties.

$344,514-Added AMBPT/BO Ranch NRHA European Futurity Presented by Markel Insurance:
La Chapelle-la-Reine, May 3—Originally scheduled to be held in Austria, BO Ranch’s proposal to host the 2022 edition of the NRHA European Futurity was accepted in February this year.

This year, TRFAM will host the $25,000 Cowboy Invitational, allowing cowboys from some of the country’s most historic ranches to show off their horsemanship skills.

Less than a year after becoming a Seven Million Dollar Sire in the National Reining Horse Association, Magnum Chic Dream has passed another milestone. It was at the 2010 National Reining Breeders Classic that the stallion first joined the elite group of NRHA Million Dollar Sires, so it’s fitting that this latest accomplishment was achieved at the same event.
