Some of rodeo’s fastest barrel racers will be running down the alley looking for a top 2 finish. Stevi Hillman and Kassie Mowry have jockied some of the best horses in the industry. The horsepower that they could bring is what to watch for.
Ky Hamilton will meet up with Rafter G Rodeo’s Swanky who is unridden. Hamilton was the first cowboy to make the eight seconds on his Round 1 bull, it is something the Australian is accustomed to doing. Trey Holston’s matchup is MMW Coriolis Effect who is one for one this season after bucking off Colton Kelley at the Fort Worth Xtreme Bulls.
