Brody Cress made history Sunday at the 123rd edition of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. The cowboy from Hillsdale became the first saddle bronc rider in CFD history to win the event three years in a row with an 87.5-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeo’s Resistol’s Top Hat.
But Cress, who pocketed nearly $8,000 for the win, wasn’t the only big winner at the “Daddy of ‘Em All.”
- Stetson Wright from Milford, Utah, won the bull riding with a 93 on Dakota Rodeo’s Safety Meeting and also won the all-around title. The rookie, who currently leads the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association all-around world standings, became the first member of the famed Wright family to win a title at Frontier Days.
- Former Casper College cowboy Trey Yates paired with Dustin Bird to win the team roping title with a 7.8-second run. Last year Yates teamed with Aaron Tsinigine to win the average title at the National Finals Rodeo.
- Jordan Jo Fabrizio of Canyon, Texas, captured Frontier Days’ inaugural breakaway roping title with a 4.18.
