Richard Newton and Tom Crouse Split Go-Round at FWSSR

Tom Crouse and Richard Newton tied to take the Round 1 win of Bracket 3 at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. With a pair of 9.3-second runs, the pair won by a full second and are $1,540 each ahead of the rest going into Round 2.

For Newton, it was one wrap and a hooey that got the job done.

“It was kind of an accident, I mean, I didn’t mean to put a wrap and a hooey but it was done already so I was trying to hurry up and get back on,” Newton said.

For Tom Crouse, who is fresh off his rookie year, the horsemanship skills that he displayed in Round 1 were those of a seasoned veteran.

Lane Livingston, Westyn Hughes, Macon Murphy and Ace Sloan complete the top 6 in Round 1 with Round 2 coming up.
