RodeoHouston: Super Series V
The final Super Series of RodeoHouston will fill the final four spots left in the Semifinals for each event.
R.C. Landingham is just outside of the Top 25 in the world and he has drawn Cervi Championship Rodeo’s Pearl Harbor who Sam Peterson rode for 84 points in Denver and the horse was also out in San Antonio. Rookie Keenan Hayes’ matchup is Cervi’s Family Tradition who was rode for 84 points earlier in Houston.
Will Lummus and Dakota Eldridge are two multi-time National Finals qualifiers who have yet to cinch a RodeoHouston title. Lummus’ rides Clayton Hass’ standout horse, Benz, and the two are a successful duo. Eldridge is coming into Houston fresh off success in Globe Life Field.
Patrick Smith is another veteran cowboy who has yet to take home a RodeoHouston Championship but header, Tanner Tomlinson, might be the one to help him cinch a win. The duo made it through to the Super Shootout Championship Round in 2022 where a no time took them out of the running.

SADDLE BRONC RIDING

Blane Cox tied the fastest run of Rodeo Austin the night before swinging over to Houston while Ty Harris’ had huge success at Globe Life Field. These two will be riding a wave of momentum coming into the Super Series.
Rising breakaway stars Josie Conner, Madison Outhier and Hali Williams are among the eight ladies backing into the box. They will be up against some of the toughest veterans of the sport including JJ Hampton and Taylor Hanchey.

Taycie Matthews is another athlete who had success in Austin before the Super Series as well as in San Antonio. She sits just outside the Top 15 in the WPRA World Standings by $1,259 meaning a go-round win in Houston might be what gets her into the top.

Trey Kimzey and Maverick Potter are two of the final eight bull riders in Houston’s Super Series. According to the PRCA site, neither cowboy rode in Houston in 2022. Potter’s Round 1 bull is Sticky Dreams of Rocky Mountain Rodeo and is the same bull that Brady Portenier pulled a third place check on in the previous bracket.
