“The only mistake I made was I promised everyone when I was coming in [to the NFR] that I’d wear a dress if I won a round,” Mays said, “and I didn’t think I’d win a round, so now I have to wear a dress.”

Mays and Jethro, the WPRA Barrel Horse of the Year, edged NFR Average leader Jill Moody and TR Dashing Badger (“Dolly”) by just four hundredths of a second to take the top spot in a round that saw six teams knock down barrels. It was a welcome win after a week in which her previous best finish had been fifth in Round 5.

“I just let him do his thing,” Mays said of Jethro. “He’s really been working well all week. Finally, yesterday, I just finally hustled him like I had all year. I had been riding a little hesitant and trying not to make mistakes. The last two nights, I’ve just kind of went for it, and it worked out.”

Jill Moody remains in the lead in the race for the NFR Average title with a time of 82.85 seconds on 6 runs. Lisa Lockhart remains second in the Average by three tenths of a second. Defending world champion Brittany Pozzi earned her first go-round check of the 2010 NFR with a sixth-place finish aboard French Covergirl (“Cosmo”).

Sherry Cervi remains in the lead for the World Championship with $221,089.69 in 2010 earnings. She became the first barrel racer to surpass $2 million in career rodeo earnings with her third place finish aboard MP Meter My Hay (“Stingray”).
