Top cowboys heading to Bay City

Twisted Rodeo - 5 hours 32 min ago

BAY CITY, Texas – Many of the greatest cowboys and cowgirls in rodeo make their way to Bay City every March.

It’s all because of the Matagorda County Fair & Rodeo, set for 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5-Saturday, March 7, at the Matagorda County Fairgrounds. They know the opportunity is there each of the three nights to cash in and make the run of their dreams toward the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Bay City also is the weekend home of many of the greatest animal athletes the game, thanks to the livestock from Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo. This past December, 27 Carr horses and bulls were a big part of the NFR, a ProRodeo record the Carr firm has held each of the past two years.

“Pete Carr has the bucking horses and bulls that are unreal,” said bareback rider Clint Cannon, a four-time NFR qualifier from nearby Waller, Texas. “When I think about Pete Carr, I think about 90-point rides, rock ’n’ roll music and fans loving it.”

A year ago, there were several NFR animals that were part of the action at the Matagorda County Fair and Rodeo, including five of the six animals that guided cowboys to the pay window in bareback riding. Two, Sadies Gal and Utopia, made their first trips to Las Vegas this past December, kick-starting their outstanding campaigns in this southeast Texas community.

“Pete Carr puts on a great rodeo,” said Sage Kimzey, the 2014 world champion bull rider from Strong City, Okla. “I’m thankful he loves the sport of rodeo so much and wants it to be so great.”

Kimzey isn’t the only world champion who follows the Carr herd around the country. Take two-time world champion Cody Wright of Milford, Utah, the reigning Bay City champion in saddle bronc riding. He matched moves with Deuces Wild to win the title last March.

Wright utilized that momentum to qualify for the NFR for the 12th straight year, but there were several finals qualifiers who are regular qualifiers to the finale.

“Pete’s got an eye for horses, and he’s surrounded himself with people who know what they’re talking about,” said saddle bronc rider Heith DeMoss, a six-time NFR from Heflin, La. “You want to go to Pete’s rodeos, because you’re going to get on something good.”

The Carr animals are a huge drawing card for contestants. That also is why fans want to be part of the Matagorda County Fair & Rodeo experience.
