San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Steer Wrestling Champion Jacob Talley continued to find success in the winter run

Jacob Talley clinched his first career victory at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo as he entered the Final Round with his sights set on the Championship.

Talley stopped the clock at 3.7 seconds, securing his place at the top of the leaderboard and a check for $15,000 to continue his success throughout the winter run.

When asked about his mindset entering the Final Round Talley said, “To just do my job, I knew I had a good steer, I’ve been really blessed with horses and a supportive family so it just made it easy.”

Talley’s journey to victory began in Bracket 5, where he tied for second place with Cash Robb, each earning $4,000.
