February 21 - Eleven Canadians will continue their quest for San Antonio Rodeo and Stock Show supremacy as the four days of semi-final action kick off today in the Texas city leading to the Finals on February 25th.

The last of the five elimination brackets,--with three rounds in each bracket--wrapped up on yesterday and it saw two time Canadian High Point Champion Morgan Grant and Maple Creek, Saskatchewan bareback rider, Wyatt Maines, punch their tickets to the semi-final.

Morgan’s success was capped off with a third round win in the tie down roping as his 8.0 second run topped the field. The round win, coupled with a third place cheque in the first round gave the Granton, Ontario native $2851 in total earnings to date.

Maines was one of the most impressive Canadian performers at the city of the Alamo as he won the second round of his bracket and was third in each of the other two to enjoy one of his biggest professional rodeo career moments thus far with a comfortable $4563 total to easily move on to the semis.

The Okotoks cowboy took another step toward realizing that dream on the weekend when he won the Rebel Energy Services Bull Riding event in Red Deer.
