San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Bracket 1, Round 1 Recap


Last night marked the kick off of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo’s 2020 ProRodeo Tournament at AT&T Center, where Bracket 1 contenders took to the arena for their first of three performances in the long round.

In the barrel racing, Taylor Langdon and her 11-year-old gelding Dashin Louie left the other contestants in the dust, stopping the clock at 14.03 seconds for the win and the $2,500 in prize money.

But steer wrestling was the event of the night on Thursday during the first performance for. All four of the top finishers topped the clock at exactly 4.2 seconds to tie for the win. Having four contestants finish with the same times has never happened since the rodeo introduced its tournament-style format. The four first-place steer wrestlers included: Justin Schaeffer, Curt Cassidy, and both Tyler Pearson and Kyle Irwin, who together co-own the 2X AQHA Horse of the Year known as Scooter.

“When you looked at those four steers, any one of us could have been 4.2 seconds on any one of them,” Cassidy said. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been part of a four-way tie like that. It sure was fun.”
