DeMoss Rides Pegasus to Saddle Bronc Lead at Fort Worth

by Johna Cravens
for the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo

FORT WORTH, Texas — Cody DeMoss showed why he’s one of the best saddle bronc rider’s in professional rodeo at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo Saturday. The Heflin, La., cowboy competed in the afternoon and evening performances with clocklike precision. He scored 80 points on Dakota Rodeo’s Calamity Jane to take the lead in the first round of bronc riding Saturday afternoon. A few hours later, DeMoss topped Rafter G Rodeo’s Pegasus for another 80-point score.

The veteran bronc rider, who finished the 2015 regular season ranked first in his specialty, was second to fellow National Finals Rodeo (NFR) cowboy Bradley Harter in the second round. However, Harter bucked off in the first round, while DeMoss’s 160 total is likely to bring him back to Fort Worth Feb. 6 for the championship round.

After no cowboy was able to stick on a bull for the required eight seconds Saturday afternoon, a pair of Canadians broke the drought Saturday night. Adam Jamison and Jordan Hansen, both of Okotooks, Alberta, scored 82.5 and 80 points respectively. Jamison rode Rafter G Rodeo’s Johnny Ramone while Hansen matched Rafter G’s Tahiti Treat. Their scores put them first and second in the round and in good position to make the top 12 finals, if they can ride their second-round bulls Sunday afternoon.

A new batch of bareback riders began their Fort Worth competition Saturday night. Mason Clements of Sandy, Utah, wasted no time in claiming the top spot on the first round leaderboard. He rode Rafter G Rodeo’s Ankle Biter for 82.5 points. The same group of bareback riders return to compete at both Sunday rodeo performances.

The World’s Original Indoor Rodeo® continues Sunday with performances at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at Fort Worth’s historic Will Rogers Coliseum.
