San Angelo Rodeo: Performance 1
The San Angelo Rodeo had been underway with slack taking place for the timed events earlier this week. The first performance will be the first round for roughstock events and it will bring us some of rodeo’s biggest names.
California’s Clayton Biglow has matched up with OLS Tubs Stevie Knicks of Macza Pro Rodeo. The multi-time Horse of the Year was the second half of rookie Keenan Hayes’ 90.5-point ride in San Antonio. Another California bareback rider out is R.C. Landingham, who has a rematch with Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Hometown Girl. The last time the two met up, it was an 86-point ride.

Two Top 10 steer wrestlers will throw one down in the first performance, Will Lummus and Tucker Allen. With the bar set at 3.7 seconds in Round 1 and 3.5 seconds in Round 2, the athletes know what they have to do. Jace Melvin captured a big win on the Texas Swing and he is another one to watch.
McCray and McCoy Profili got a taste of success at Rodeo Austin when they roped a 5.2 in the Long Round to be eighth and move on to the Semifinals. The current leaderboard in San Angelo has a 3.9 leading Round 1 and a 4.0 setting the pace for Round 2. The third Profili, Kaden, is also out with header James Arnold.
SADDLE BRONC RIDING
World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider Wade Sundell has drawn Pearl Harbour. The Macza bronc was out in Fort Worth with rookie Q McWhorter where the two were marked 82 points. South Dakota’s Brady Hill matched up with Pete Carr’s Dusty Roads who will be making a switch from the bares to the broncs.
Newly crowned Rodeo Austin Champion Hunter Herrin is among the nine calf ropers in Performance 1. The No. 2 tie-down roper in the World has a pair of 7.6’s leading Round 1 and a 6.9 leading Round 2 so Herrin has his work cut out for him.
At a rodeo where the times get faster ever round, the pace for Round 1 has been set at 15.80 seconds by Jimmie Smith-Tew in slack. One of the cowgirls out to beat it in the Performance 1 is Ari-Anna Flynn. Flynn’s horsepower is always undeniable and although she has had a slow winter, San Angelo could turn it all around.
World Champion Shane Proctor took to social media in February to say that he is not done riding bulls and here he is. He has matched up with Pete Carr’s Dirt Dobber who is one for two on qualified rides in the 2023 season.
