More Thursday event results

This is just going to be a quick post, but I wanted to bring everyone up to date on the event results so far.

Jeff Chapman had the best performance time today in the calf roping with a run of 11.4 seconds.

In the saddle bronc, the best was saved for last as Arizona cowboy Steve Dollarhide recorded the top store with an 85. He was the last rider in the event because he was awarded a re-ride when his first horse didn't buck too well and the judges gave him a chance to improve on his initial 64 score.

In the steer wrestling, the man who owns the Pendleton Round-Up arena record, K.C. Jones, also set the pace today. Jones recorded a 4.5-second time. He didn't threaten his own arena record of 3.8 seconds, but he eclipsed the rest of the field by more than 1 second. Jones' run also got the crowd excited, drawing a roar of approval.

In the team roping, only four teams recorded scores, but two of them tied for the top scores of the day. The team of Shain Sproul and Cory Petska tied with Lance Brooks and York Gill with runs of 7.1 seconds.

And at Pendleton they split the bull riding into two sections. With the first section done, only one cowboy was able to stay aboard for the fill 8 seconds out of 9 riders. Mike Moore scored 85 points on the bull Hemi from the Corey & Horst Rodeo Co.

That's all for now. It's about time to get back into the arena for the steer roping, barrel racing and the final section of bull riding.
