LAS VEGAS – The Wright brothers made history as four of them qualified for this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. But it was the most unlikely brother – the youngest of the bunch, Spencer Wright – that amazed the rodeo world when he won the gold buckle in saddle bronc riding Saturday night.
Wright entered the 10-day rodeo – which set a record for attendance with 177,565 – in 11th place, but gradually moved up the list and won the average title to claim the world championship in his first WNFR.
“I knew this was a possibility, but it’s just a little hard to take it all in right now,” Wright said. “I’m speechless, and I really don’t know what to say at this moment. All I can say right now is that I’m proud and happy.”
SATURDAY ROUND 10 – DECEMBER 13, 2014- UNOFFICIAL RESULTS
