Fans who attended the 45th annual Bob Feist Invitational Team Roping Classic at the world-famous Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Oklahoma were treated to the tightest short round in BFI history. And it was Sooner State cowboys Jake Cooper Clay and Billie Jack Saebens who came out kings of the 126-team BFI from third high callback to take the sweet $150,000 victory lap after roping six steers in 47.11 seconds.

COTTONWOOD, CALIF. – On a July summer day in 2012, the rodeo world lost a young team roper at the Daddy of ‘em All in Cheyenne, Wyo. In July of 2022, it will be 10 years since the world lost the namesake of the greatest Tuesday team roping in the world, the Broc Cresta Memorial. It is hard to believe that day that all who knew and loved and mourned him was almost 10 years ago.
