Viva Las Vegas

Sept 14, 2019 l Airdrie, Alberta

Once again the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo will have a distinct Canadian presence. With seven competitors from north of ’49 virtually assured of a December Las Vegas trip and an eighth still very much in the mix, Canadian fans will have ample opportunities to get those Maple Leaf flags waving.

Saddle bronc riding will have the biggest Canuck contingent with 2016 World Champion, Water Valley, Alberta’s Zeke Thurston, leading the way as he sits second in the world, just $45,000 back of season leader, Ryder Wright. Jake Watson of Hudson’s Hope, BC (8th) will be making his second WNFR appearance while Wildwood, Alberta cowboy, Dawson Hay, (9th) will be taking his saddle and his talent to the Thomas and Mack Arena for the first time.

Bareback riders Orin Larsen of Inglis, Manitoba and Clint Laye of Cadogan, Alberta will both be making return trips to the year-end classic. Larsen sits in third spot, just $19,000 back of season leader, Clayton Biglow, while Laye occupies 9th place in the world bareback standings as of this writing.

Reigning Canadian Steer Wrestling Champion, Scott Guenthner of Provost, Alberta, is poised to make his third consecutive trip to Vegas to represent his home and native land. Guenthner sits in third place and is just $44,000 back of season leader Ty Erickson. And knocking on the NFR door, also in search of a third Finals berth, is Cochrane, Alberta’s Tanner Milan. The two-time Canadian titleist, is in 16th place, with less than $3500 separating numbers 13 through 18 in the titanic battle for those coveted final spots on the WNFR bulldogging roster.

And one of the coolest Canadian stories is the late season charge by 2016 Canadian Bull Riding Champion, Jordan Hansen of Ponoka, Alberta. Looking to make his second Vegas appearance, Jordan capped off a huge fall run with an $18,200 win at Puyallup, Washington’s ProRodeo Tour Finale to climb all the way to 8th place in the world standings.

And while they have some work to do and might need a little boost from Lady Luck, bareback rider, Pascal Isabelle (Okotoks, 21st) and bronc rider Kolby Wanchuck (Sherwood Park, 22nd) are not out of the running.

A couple of Canadian champions (in addition to Guenthner) will also be Vegas bound. Three time and reigning Canadian Champion tie down roper, Shane Hanchey of Sulphur, Louisiana has qualified for an amazing 10th consecutive WNFR berth and is sitting 3rd at present as he looks for a second world title—he won it in 2013. And Canadian Bareback Riding Champion, Richmond Champion of Dublin, Texas, sits in 4th place in the world standings in a year that was highlighted, in addition to his riding successes, by his marrying a Canadian girl, Saskatchewan raised Olympic athlete, the former Paige Lawrence.
