OMAK Bull riders posted from pretty darn good scores while there was a collision in the World-Famous Suicide Race on Friday night.
Four of the six cowboys that rode in the bulls scored led by Rylan Wright of Heber City, Utah, with an 83.
No. 25 Nellie Miller of Cottonwood, Calif., should be moving up the ranks after a fast 16.39-second barrel ride during slack Friday morning.
Friday night’s barrel race winner was Pamela Capper of Cheney, who clocked 16.5 seconds. She is second overall.
Jake Pratt of Ellensburg put down an 8.2-second run in tie down roping, which is the fastest after two rodeo performances.
Bryce Palmer of Milton-Freewaser, Ore., and partner Monty Joe Petska or Turlock, Calif., snared their calf in team roping in 5.8 seconds, which was good to claim first after the first go round.
Zee Thurston of Big Valley, Alberta, was first in saddle bronc riding with an 82.5. Only three complete rides were recorded.
Bareback continues to be small in numbers, but Brian Bain slapped down a 79 score as the only rider Friday night. Only three riders in the first two days in the event, but all three scored.
Slack Friday morning found Trevor Knowles of Mount Vernon, Ore., jumping to the top of the event with a 4.4-second run.
Right behind was cousin Blake Knowles of Heppner, Ore., at 4.7 seconds.
Baylor Roche of Tremonton, Utah, leads the average at 9 seconds on two.
Nick Guy of Sparta, Wisc., who won the overall steer wrestling title last year, took fastest time Friday night at 5.3 seconds and is second in the average at 10.4 seconds.
On the second night of the Suicide Race, the Top 3 horses were the same as the first night - Eagle Boy, Spade and AMP.
There was a collision between three horses coming up the ramp that left jockey Josh Harry, who was on Jim Creek, dazed on the ramp after the tumble.
Only 16 horses went off the hill.
Ronnie Red and Diamond, which ran Thursday night, were scratched.
Big Bucks and BoShay scratched prior to Thursday’s race.
