FORT WORTH, Texas (Feb. 8, 2015) – The 119th Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo came to a close on Saturday night paying $621,302 to rodeo contestants.

The big money winner here was last year’s Women’s Professional Rodeo Association Rookie of the Year, Sarah Rose McDonald riding her great eight-year-old mare “Bling.” They earned first place every time they ran in the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum, including Saturday night’s championship round.

Their total time of 49.11 seconds earned them a total of $20,933, most assuredly an earnings record for this rodeo. This should move McDonald to the top of the world standings and will put her in contention for her first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualification.

There are not many buckles that Trevor Brazile has left to earn in his career and the 21-time world champion took another one off of that list here winning the team roping. Brazile, from Decatur, Texas, and his partner Patrick Smith, from Lipan, Texas, had a total time of 16.5-seconds to earn the championship. They each collected $13,887.

“What a great rodeo,” Smith said. “It’s amazing to come here and think about the history and tradition. It’s just awesome to win it and have your name on that list.”

In the saddle bronc riding, traveling partners Cody DeMoss and Joe Lufkin are dominating winter rodeos so far. DeMoss won the National Western Stock Show Rodeo in Denver and Lufkin won here.

DeMoss, from Heflin, La., also had success here, placing second in the finals and third in the overall standings. Rusty Allen from Eagle Mountain, Utah won the final round with an 84 point ride on J Bar J Rodeo’s Sweatin’ Bullets. Allen finished second overall.

The saddle bronc riding buckle is going to Sallisaw, Okla., with Lufkin however. He earned $12,064 for his three rides that totaled 239 points.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet,” Lufkin said. “Cody and I are so blessed and are having the best winter. We are both just really grateful.”
