Legendary cowgirl Lari Dee Guy of Abilene roped the first-place paycheck and a semi-finals berth in the semi-finals with a time of 2.0 in breakaway roping. Guy, a National Cowgirl Hall of Fame and Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame inductee, has won nine Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) world championships. In her long rodeo career, she has trained roping horses for some of the top tie-down ropers in the country and has mentored many fellow breakaway ropers.

The FWSSR ProRodeo Tournament pays out more than $1.2 million in a format that features all eight professional rodeo contests. In each event 56 competitors (56 teams in team roping) are divided into seven brackets of eight.

Contestants in each bracket compete in two rounds of back-to-back action with the top two money earners in each event advancing to the semi-finals. The third highest money winner in each bracket advances to the wild card round.

Those finishing lower than third still have a chance to advance. They go to the non-qualifier pool. The highest remaining money earner in each event in the non-qualifier pool after all brackets are completed advances to the wild card round.

The top two in the wild card round advance to the semifinals and the top four from each semifinal advance to the finals on February 3.

Bracket 3 features a whole new slate of competitors. They will compete in their first round on Monday at 7:30 in Dickies Arena. Monday the Stock Show Goes Pink and half of all ticket sales benefit the Careity Foundation which supports cancer prevention and patients in the local community.
