While numerous other partners were having trouble making successful runs, veteran Team Ropers Clay Smith and Jade Corkill stopped the timers in 6.6 seconds in the short go to win the 98th Greeley Stampede Rodeo in Greeley, Colo.

The 98th annual Greeley Stampede’s championship round of rodeo was held on Wednesday night, July 3, 2019. The big crowd in attendance was treated to a record breaking score of 90 points in the bareback event, a record tying score of 88 points in the saddle bronc event, and a tie for first place in the barrel racing, with one of the winners (Shali Lord) being from the home state of Colorado. The final round was a fitting end to another successful year of Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo at the prestigious Colorado rodeo.
