SALINAS, CALIF.  – The 19th Annual Doyle W. Hoskins Memorial Team Roping and 17th Annual Barrel Race were held July 15th & 16th at the Monterey County Sheriff Posse Grounds.
  After putting on the Doyle W. Hoskins Memorial for 19 years you would think it would be easy and simple, but we are usually completely exhausted by the end of the weekend. The roping was literally done at 1:30am and time only’s for the barrel race started at 7:30am the following morning. Darrick Hoskins and Sheanna DeForest did not even get a chance to sleep at all. I got a little less than two hours. Don’t get me wrong, we love doing it in memory of a great man, so not complaining. We love being able to celebrate Doyle’s life this way. He was so passionate about roping, riding, family, friends, and life.
  The roping on Saturday ran amazing thanks to our efficient office crew Elly Leslie, Romey Stuhaan, Heather Kennedy, and Sheanna DeForest. Thank you to Todd Utterback and Blaine Lockett for flagging all day. The roping takes a lot of manpower to keep it going. Thank you to Dustin Thompson, Monroe Hoskins, CJ DeForest, Frankie Eubanks, Sabby Pemberton, Dwain Pemberton, Macias Family, the Escobar Family, and Twister Hurley for stepping in and helping out. Thanks Eric Cozzitorto for bringing us great cattle this year. Thank you Geary Lyons for providing hay for the cattle.
  The ground for the barrel race Sunday was fantastic! Thank you Darrick Hoskins for preparing the ground for us, it was superb. Also thanks to Jesse Brown for bringing in your tractors to make the drags faster and more efficient. Thanks to Greg Fleming for driving the second tractor during the race. A special shout out to Sheanna DeForest and Patti Silva for all your help with announcing, taking entries, running the office, doing the draws, and making sure everything ran smoothly for the race. We would also like to thank Colleen Hill, Michelle Petersen, Maddie Petersen, Matt Mullins, McKenna Wood, Sherry Morris, and Gina Aubrey for working the gate and setting barrels.
  This event would not be possible without our generous sponsors Serv Aero Engineering, Kolor King, Johnson Associates, Sunlite Auto Glass, Best Ever Pads, Cal Auto Tire, Dentpro of Salinas, My Automotive Group, Ropes Galore, Monterey County Sheriff Posse, and Scott Thomas Saddlery.
  A total of 847 teams competed for the prestigious awards. Winners of the #7 Handicap Pick & Draw received Skyline knives dedicated to Colin Coady, winners of the Open Draw Pot received halters dedicated to Jim Rodriguez Sr. The Junior, Senior, Mixed, Century winners received Skyline Vaquero buckles dedicated to Pat Deaton. The #9 Handicap Pick & Draw winners received a Skyline Vaquero back cinch with buckles.

Third high money winners Nolan Scott #3.5 & Over and McKenna Wood #3 & Under won Scott Thomas breastcollars. Our Best Ever Saddle Pad winners were Monty Jo Petska, Braydee Bourdet, and Cheyenne Rey.
