Ty Harris thought he had made a little history at the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. Ultimately, he came up just shy, but the tie-down roper from San Angelo, Texas was more than happy to secure his spot in Sunday’s Championship Finals.
During Saturday’s CFD Semi Final round, Harris finished his run in 10.1 seconds, the fastest of any tie-down roper at the rodeo this year and just two-tenths off the Frontier Park Arena record to win the day and advance.

The fifth performance of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo will be a memorable one for J.B. Mauney from Cotulla, Texas.
Mauney is one of the most well-known bull riders in the sport’s history. He spent many years on the Professional Bull Riders tour and earned titles from that organization in 2013 and 2015. While he is a bull rider and has enjoyed a successful career, he wanted to compete in rodeos as well. He did that in 2009 and that was the only time he rode at the rodeo in Frontier Park. He’s competing full-time for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association this year and is climbing up the standings very quickly.

Impressive performances at the North American Reining Stakes unofficially catapulted National Reining Horse Association Owner Smart Like Juice Inc. past $2 million in earnings.

Lisa Lockhart and her buckskin mare Rosas Cantina CC (Rosa) have been dominating the barrel racing this week at the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD).  Lockhart who lives in Oelrichs, S.D., is no stranger to the Daddy of ‘em All. She won the championship here in 2015 riding another buckskin – the gelding nicknamed Louie, now age 18, who Lockhart rode for most of her 14 trips to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR).

While the 2020NE Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo are just getting underway, the Only Gold Medal Rodeo in the World came to a close on Pioneer Day in Utah at the Days of '47 Cowboy Games and Rodeo presented by Zions Bank in Salt Lake City. Making the evening more special was that July 24 was also the National Day of the Cowboy in 2021.
Breakaway roper Tacy Kay Webb turned in the fastest time stopping the clock in a quick 1.95 seconds to win her first Gold Medal. Webb, of Madisonville, TX, got a standing ovation from the sold out crowd thanking her for her work as an ICU nurse in dealing with COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.
