Brazile repeats thrice in Deadwood
July 29, 2008
For the second year in a row, Trevor Brazile won two events, plus the all-around, at the Deadwood (SD) Days of ’76 Rodeo.
Brazile, the reigning and five-time World Champion All-Around Cowboy, repeated as team roping and steer roping champion, earning $6,198 between the two events to claim all-around honors once again in Deadwood, which has been honored four times as the PRCA’s Small Outdoor Rodeo Committee of the Year and is the four-time and reigning Medium Rodeo Committee of the Year.
He also won the same two events in 2007 after earning $4,906 as rodeo’s all-around champion.
Brazile roped and tied three steers in 34.9 seconds to win the steer roping title and later joined forces with Patrick Smith of Midland, TX to rope two steers in 11.0 seconds to win the team roping title.
Bareback rider Chris Harris and steer wrestler Cash Myers, who won their respective events at the Days of ’47 Rodeo earlier in the week, also claimed titles in Deadwood. Harris, who earned a share of the Deadwood title one year ago, rode Burch Rodeo’s Big 85 for 86 points and a victory worth $3,206, while Myers earned $3,430 after recording a two-head time of 7.7 seconds.
Other Deadwood champions were: saddle bronc rider J.J. Elshere of Quinn, SD, 90 points, $3,548; tie-down roper Cimarron Boardman of Stephenville, TX, 18.5 seconds on two head, $4,075; and bull rider Nick Price of Russellville, AR, 88 points, $3,506.
