Trevor Brazile closing in on $7 million in career earnings

Trevor Brazile has won 25 gold buckles in his career and he’s aiming for another one at the National Finals Steer Roping which begins on Nov. 6. He will also have another milestone at stake, becoming the first cowboy to earn more than $7 million. Currently, he is $12,865 away from the mark.

“I think reaching a mark like that is just there to motivate the next generation, not only of cowboys, but rodeo committees and PRCA administration, to know that it has been done in rodeo,” Brazile said. “It will get easier each year to do that if everything keeps on the same trajectory.”

The next highest-earner in ProRodeo history behind 43-year-old Brazile is Cody Ohl with about $3.5 million.
