Rodeo Austin: Performance 1
Rodeo Austin kicks off with a bang. Some of the hottest young guns and some of the toughest veterans will get things rolling.
Bill Tutor is a veteran bareback riding gearing up for a rematch with Beutler & Son Rodeo’s South Suds. He has been on this horse twice before, the most recent ride being in 2020. Up-and-comer Waylon Bourgeois has drawn Beutler’s Gray Goose. This horse only has two outs this season, one in Odessa and one in Tucson.
