The second round of the Elite Rodeo Athletes World Championship kicked off Saturday, November 12, 2016, and the atmosphere inside the American Airlines Center was electric.

Last night Kassie Mowry of Dublin, Texas, was draw No. 1 picking up the first round gold buckle and tonight she and the great Firewatermakemehappy thrilled the crowed again with a fast time of 13.028 for the round win, this time as the last lady to run.

Mowry made her berth to the ERA World Championship at literally 3 in the morning. After a trying all summer to qualify through the Mesquite qualifiers she finally puncher her ticket at the November 9 Last Chance Qualifier and has powered through the championship thus far. The great 6-year-old buckskin gelding is by Firewaterontherocks out of Junior Country Girl owned my Martha and Jeff Smith.

With the round win tonight Mowry has collected over $16,000 for picking up the $8,055 first place paycheck each night.

Taking home the second place win in the round with an equally impressive time of 13.106 is crowd favorite, Lisa Lockhart riding the standout gelding An Oakie With Cash.  Lockhart is also keeping the lead in the world championship race with total points of 3,425.  Fallon Taylor is sitting second in the world standings with 2,637.5 total points, and with tomorrow’s final round extra points the race between Lockhart and Taylor will be intense. In tomorrow’s final round first place will earn 900 points giving Taylor the opportunity – if everything falls in Taylor’s favor – to eclipse Lockhart’s lead. However, if Lockhart continues to stay consistent and pickup another second place check she’ll take home 750 points, which would bring her total nearly impossible to beat.
