NFR 2021 Live Preview for Round 6
There’s been a lot of movement in the competition standings in each of the events at this year’s National Finals Rodeo. Already, however, Round 3 saw some of the top talents start to find their footing. With more data from Round 4 and moving forward, those cowboys should continue to climb the leaderboard as their consistency balances out stellar performances.
Round 3 on Saturday saw all-around leader Stetson Wright turn in his best performance so far at the NFR in saddle bronc riding, securing a second-place finish. The effort earned him another $21,336 on his record-setting winnings account, and more importantly, helped him fend off Ryder Wright in the event. Stetson’s older brother, Ryder is just under $12,000 away from catching the world leader, though you could say he’s pushing him as well.
As with bareback riding, there’s a close competition in tie-down roping. Shane Hanchey currently holds a lead of about $40,000 on the world leaderboard but is in fourth in the NFR standings. Caleb Smidt took Round 3 on Saturday and is currently tied for first place in Las Vegas. If he keeps this up, he could catch Hanchey, while simultaneously improving his spot on the all-around list.
