FWSSR B5.jpg

Bracket 5 is here to bring us more and more of the good stuff.


Bareback riders Rocker Steiner and Shane O’Connell both have rematches in Round 1. Steiner had Sankey Pro Rodeo and Phenom Genetics Toy Soldier at both the Pendleton Round-Up and the Lewiston Roundup during his rookie year and rodeo for 84 and 84.5 points. O’Connell met Sankey’s Pick Up Sticks at the Daddy of ‘Em All in 2021.

Your No. 2 steer wrestler in the World is Tucker Allen and he will be up against some of the best bull doggers that pro rodeo has to offer like Curtis Cassidy, Ty Erickson and Stockton Graves. Both Cassidy and Graves fell just short of moving on from the Wildcard Round in 2022 while Erickson went on to the Semifinals. Who will advance this year? It is anybody’s game.

It is a stacked field in the saddle bronc riding. Brody Cress drew Crossroads of Hurst & TNT Pro Rodeo who is one for one so far this season when Logan Cook took a no score in Waco. Meanwhile, his traveling partner, Lefty Holman, will go toe-to-toe with Rafter G rodeo’s Mrs. Wolowitz and Stace Smith Pro Rodeo’s Levi The Boss.

Cory Solomon is looking to have a repeat of last year and then some. Solomon made it to the Finals in 2022 and came up just short of a win. Although Adam Gray picked up a check last year in Round 1 of his bracket, he will be gunning for more come Bracket 5.

Last year’s tie for second place in the Finals was Taylor Engesser. She’s back and hungry to do it all again. Standing between her and another shot at the Championship is Bradi Good who also advanced last year to the Semifinals before her time was up.

National Finals barrel racer Sissy Winn’s 2022 season really took off in Fort Worth. She made it through to the Final round and her fastest time came in Round 1 of her bracket with a 16.40. Winn also claimed the Jerry Ann Taylor Award for best dressed. Ivy Saebens, Steely Steiner and Michelle Darling are among the cowgirls running tonight with Winn.

Bull rider Trey Holston is currently sitting No. 1 in the World Standings. Adding a Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo win to his 2023 season would be sure to give the Kansas cowboy a rush of momentum as he went on to San Antonio. There is two bulls and 16 seconds between Holston and a spot in the Semifinals.
