OKLAHOMA CITY – The 2017 USTRC Cinch National Finals of Team Roping made an impact and answered the questions that have topped the conversation between team ropers over the past several months. The 2017 USTRC season was interrupted this year by the changing of the guard when Active Interest Media (AIM) took the reins of the association. There was no question that USTRC events, including the National Finals in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma have been on a steady decline over the past several years and the shake-up of the new ownership left a lot of unanswered questions about the future of the organization. The inquiries over the past several months were put aside as many anticipated this year’s Finals event to see how the changes that were introduced would impact the event. With the 2017 USTRC Cinch Finals now over it has been recognized as a success and the future of the reconditioned event can see many years to come.

The 2017 USTRC Cinch National Finals of Team Roping, along with the event at the Lazy E Arena witnessed a thirty percent increase in teams over last year. There were 6,100 teams at the Finals and another 5,200 teams at the Lazy E, making 28 consecutive years as the largest roping in the world. This was a staggering feat when you consider that the event was shortened from 10 to 7 days.

Of course an event cannot only be judged by the number of teams entered, but also by the overall feeling of those in attendance, in addition to money and prizes awarded and the production of the event itself. Least to say, the sentiment at this year’s USTRC Finals conquered all of this and more. There was a sense of ‘welcoming back’ an old friend into the arena this year and the feeling of the same great production of the USTRC Finals that ropers enjoy. To answer the questions of the event itself, the 2017 Cinch National Finals of Team Roping paid out over $5 million in cash. Over 1,000 steers were sorted and shuttled between Guthrie and OKC. By all accounts, barrier and steers were easy, accounting for a catch percentage nearly 15% higher than normal. Ropers also enjoyed the three-arena set up and format allowing them to get in and out of their rotation quickly. The daisy chain worked to perfection throughout the entire event. Overall, the impression of the event was great. Ropers gathered, enjoyed each other’s company as they roped for some of the biggest money of the year!

The focus on the Finals is to win big and every roper had their shot at this year’s payouts. From the Open to the novice, each day was filled with ropers heading to the pay window to pick up large checks, and collect their prizes that included Dodge Trucks, Case Tractors, Martin trophy saddles, Gist buckles, Tony Lama Boots and Purina Feed.

With the 2017 Cinch National Finals of Team Roping in the books and the success of the event, ropers can look forward to what’s to come. According to Denny Gentry, interim association president, his core group of producers and ropers used the event to reconcile a list of opportunities and concerns that need attention in order to maximize the USTRC to its full potential. The major concern from Gentry and staff concerned the formats for qualification ropings, the speed of the Finals ropings and the classifications of the teenagers.

But despite their outspoken public concerns, “It is crystal clear from team ropers that the USTRC has a strong place in market,” said Gentry. “It is definitely a completely different product than WSTR and needs to be a defined entity of itself. Our team had only 90 days to pull off 6 Regionals and the Finals and it took all the old pros from the entire industry to make it work.”

If the Finals is any indicator, ropers expect lots of adjustments in 2018. The message is clear, a major effort is underway to make sure the USTRC will continue to be an organization for ropers to enjoy the sport of team.

They took the win at the US Open Championships roping five head in 32.05 seconds and winning $53,400.

We caught up with Kaleb and Junior following the Finals while they were practicing, getting ready for the NFR and they both were very humbled about the US Open Championship win.

“It was a blessing,” Kaleb said. “I’ve been trying to win that thing forever and to finally get it done – Well it was a true blessing.”

“It was exciting to win the Open with Kaleb,” Junior added before running a set of practice steers. “Team roping has changed over the last couple years, it’s getting really fast but it worked out pretty good and we can’t complain.”

“It has always been a dream of mine to rope with one of the best in the world and especially win with one of them,” said Hatley, who attends Weatherford College. “Junior and I roped at three to four jackpots the week before and didn’t have any luck. When we got to the roping I told myself to do my job and he will take care of it. It worked out pretty good.”

Joel Cosgrove Jr., Boligee, AL, Charles Pogue, Ringling, OK

A blast from the past, 15-time NFR qualifier, Charles Pogue heeled behind Joel Cosgrove Jr. for the championship of the #13 Shoot-Out. Cosgrove, who came to Oklahoma from Alabama and the home-state native Pogue roped four head in 29.9 seconds to win $60,000 in cash.

“I thought the roping was great,” Joel said. “I hurt my back a few years ago and Charles offered to keep my horses in shape until I got back on my feet. We became friends after that and rope together when we can. I had won the #13 down there in 1998 with Ed Allen, but this was the most money I have ever won.”

Pogue, who is one of the pros at www.TotalTeamRoping.com, heeled on a horse he borrowed from Barry Hickman. He said, “Joel and I got to practice together about a week before we went down there. He did a really good job, the horses worked well and things happened to fall into place for us. I get a kick out of seeing guys like Joel, who I’ve worked with win. It makes it that much nicer.”

“It was a really big deal there this year,” said 17-year-old Patterson who had not been to the USTRC Finals since he was 13. “Jesse is one of my good buddies and we rope a lot. He’s been heeling really well lately and even though I normally heel I thought I’d head for him. I’m glad I did.”

As for Hines, he said, “I’ve been going to the Finals for the past 3-4 years and this was my first time winning something there. I’ve won some regular USTRC events but nothing compared to this.”

Hines plans to put the money away for the future, hopes to gain a rodeo scholarship somewhere when he graduates and to make the NFR someday.

“Winning the #11 Shoot-Out was very exciting,” said Hali, the daughter of legendary Speed Williams. “I think helping my dad at his schools and on SpeedRoping.com, being able to break down a run and knowing what to do to fix things makes it really easy to get tuned up. Garret and I weren’t going to rope at the Finals until about three weeks before the books closed and I’m happy it worked out.”

When we talked to Garret about winning the #11 Shoot-Out, he said, “It was exciting and fun to win it with Hali. Speed has helped me with my heading and asked if I’d heel for her a while back. I’m glad it all worked out. Like I said, it was fun to win it with her.”

Resounded again over the arena floor in the #10 Shoot-Out was Buckshot Patterson who moved to the top of the leader-board to claim his second first place victory. This time heeling, Patterson roped with his father Matt Patterson and together they took the championship with a four head total of 29.39 seconds to win $70,000 in cash.

Days after the event Matt was still excited about the win in Oklahoma City. “I’m still just totally excited – now that we’re home it’s great to reflect on what we did and to do it with my son was very special. I have three of my boys that rope and it has been a goal of mine ever since I started, to win something with one of my sons.”

“Winning that roping with my dad - that was awesome,” said the younger Patterson. “I couldn’t believe it when it happened and something I will never forget.” After taking home around $75,000 from two different ropings, Buckshot bought a new truck, invested a large part of his winnings and plans to spend the rest.

JW Allen, Goldthwaite, TX, Wyatt Lloyd, San Angelo, TX  

The final roping of the week was a shocker as the #8 Finale more than doubled its payoff from $152,000 last year to $288,000 this year.  The #8 opened the door for some of today’s novice ropers to win big as well. The #8 Shoot-Out raised lots of eyebrows as it witnessed the team of J.W. Allen and Wyatt Lloyd post the fastest #8 win of the entire season. The Texas duo worked their way to the pay window to pick up checks that totaled $54,200 in cash.

“I’ve only roped with Wyatt for a couple months at our High School rodeos,” said J.W who is a senior in high school this year. “This was the first big roping we went to together and I have to say I had to beat my own mind before I could beat anyone else, but thanks to my partner and the mare I’m riding, it went really well.”

“Our game plan was to just go get four down and try to win some money,” said the home-schooled sophomore, Lloyd. “It worked out really good for us.”

The USTRC Finals also included several special events throughout the week. The Gold Plus roping, US Invitational ropings, as well as the US Junior and All-Ladies ropings which were highlighted during the Finals.

US Invitationals: $169,760 and $181,000

The US Invitational events included both a #11 and #9 roping. Winning the #11 was the team of David Walker and Arthur Morgan. The friends roped well throughout the event and from the fourth call position collected the championship worth $50,000 after catching four steers in 35.46 seconds. Winning the #9 US Invitational was the team of Randy Gaydos and Doug Sowell. They roped their way to the top stopping the clock on four head in 35.61 seconds. Gaydos and Sowell took home $50,300 in cash for their efforts in the #9 Invitational.

“Before the event I told Arthur I had entered us, sent a check and he owed me $1,500.” Walker explained. “After he roped a leg on our second one, I told him that I was going to keep going at ‘em like the first two. We drew good on our last two and it all worked out.”

Morgan’s win at the Finals was a testament to true grit. “I’ve been roping since the 80’s and it took me several days since then before I could really talk about the win without tearing up,” he said. “I believe the Lord wasn’t just sitting beside me he was riding with me. I also want to thank my wife and kids for all of their support throughout the years.”

The #9 Invitational winners shared enthusiasm and excitement about their win in OKC. “It was the most I’ve ever won,” said Gaydos. “The money is in the bank right now and there is no telling what I’m going to do with it.” Sowell added to the conversation, saying, “I’ve been roping for 20 years but that was my first trip to the Finals and it turned out pretty good. Overall it was a great environment and I’m definitely going back next year.”

Rust and Kitchens topped the roping and took home $16,500 in cash after roping four head in fast 28.41 seconds. They put on a show and gave a glimpse of how the Open might look in a few years.

“I liked the roping. You had to rope up, not safety up and go at it,” said the 16-year-old Rust. “Whit and I never have roped together, he usually heads, but I thought I’d call to see if he wanted to and I’m glad I did.”

Kitchens, who placed twice in the event is planning on using the money to buy a new horse and make some large payments on his truck and trailer, added, “I just wanted to go up there and do some good. I wasn’t going to rope in that roping until Mason called and asked me too. He ropes really well and handles cattle really good.”

Rylea Rae Fabrizio, Weatherford, TX, Lorraine Moreno,  Mathis, TX  

The Cinch Ladies Championships has become one of the largest all-girl team ropings in the country and claiming the title of this roping is a goal for many of the sports toughest teams. This year’s champions, Rylea Rae Fabrizio and Lorraine Moreno did it in style roping and had over 3-seconds to spare, roping four head in 32.37 seconds earned the ladies $18,040 in cash.

“It was a great roping this year - cattle were good and there were quite a few girls,” said Fabrizio, who is a fixture at many of the top all-girl ropings. “This was actually the first US roping I have ever won in 22 years. I’ve placed a lot but I guess I finally broke the ice.”

The US Ladies Championships was a turning point for Moreno. “I wasn’t doing too great at the Finals,” she said. “I didn’t rope too well in the #10 the day before and was frustrated. My parents told me to just go out and have fun and that’s what I did. I was blessed and it all worked out.”

Average: 1. Rylea Rae Fabrizio and Lorraine Moreno, 32.37, $18,040. 2. Beverly Robbins and Kelsie Chace, 35.94, $12,880. 3. Tori Lockwood and Lorraine Moreno, 40.53, $9,800. 4. Brandi Hollenbeck and Courtney Small, 42.51, $7,200. 5. Lydia Townson and Lorraine Moreno, 43.39, $3,600.

Gold Plus Ropings 

#12 GP: $276,720Justin Reininger, Seguin, TX, LB Pearson, Yoakum, TX  

#10 GP: $381,600 – Jeff Hartfield Sr,  Charlestown, IN,  Preston Bartow, Cromwell, IN  

The big Specialty ropings of the week included the #12 and #10 Gold Plus ropings. Each roping awarded large payouts, along with a new Dodge Dually and a new Case IH Tractor to the high money and reserve high money winners of each roping. In the #12 Gold Plus Shoot-Out the winning team of Justin Reininger and L.B. Pearson were hot handed as they stroked four head in 31.98 seconds to win $56,700 in cash. A flip of a coin decided the truck and tractor between the winning team with Reininger taking the keys to the new Dodge Dually and Pearson taking home the Case IH Tractor.

Truck winner Reininger said, “Winning that truck at the Finals was awesome! I haven’t got to drive it too much, my wife drove it back from Oklahoma, but man it’s nice. The roping was good. The cattle were good, the score was good. It was just overall a good roping this year.”

“It couldn’t have gone any better. Well, the coin flip could have gone a little bit better,” Pearson said with a chuckle. “Not really. I’m very blessed to have what I got. The tractor is going to be real handy. I can finally finish my barn, build a little fence and do a little shredding around the house.”

In the #10 Gold Plus roping it was the team from Indiana who from the high call position closed the door on the roping with a four head total time of 32.05 seconds. Jeff Hartfield and Preston Bartow won $75,000 in cash for their solid runs in the roping. They didn’t flip a coin for the prizes and settled it between themselves. Bartow would take the Dodge Dually and Jeff would take the Case IH Tractor.

“I thought it was the right thing to do,” said Hartfield concerning how they split the prizes. “He is a nice young man with a two-year-old little girl and wife. It will be very important to him and his young family. As for the roping, I have always been a little disappointed in the past. This year was different. The staff was very easy to work with, the setups were fair and the cattle were matched as well as can be. I was overwhelmingly impressed.”

The win in Oklahoma City was a big deal for the heavy equipment operator, Bartow. “It is definitely a life changing experience for me,” he said. “It is kind of unbelievable really. When it came down to the prizes, Jeff was very gracious and let me take the truck and he took the tractor.”
