Airdrie, ALTA – June 19, 2017

It was the perfect Father’s Day present.

Spur Lacasse, son of former Canadian and Calgary Stampede bareback riding champion, Roger Lacasse, climbed aboard the Calgary Stampede’s 2012 Canadian Champion bareback horse, Special Delivery, and “spurred” out an 85 score to capture the bareback riding title and $900 at the weekend’s Innisfail Pro Rodeo at the Daines Ranch.

Riding before one of the huge crowds the sunshine-soaked weekend brought to the central Alberta community (sunshine being very much a rarity for this event), the 24 year-old Calgary cowboy edged Regina’s Ty Taypotat by a half point for the win.
