Sunshine did more than brighten up the skies at Frontier Park—it also dried the ground. While arena conditions weren’t ideal, they improved from Friday, and it showed in Saturday’s barrel racing times.

The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association field included many who had been the most successful in the first round, including reigning world champion Nellie Miller of Cottonwood, California. Riding her great horse, Rafter W Minnie Reba (“Sister”), Miller stopped the clock in 17.76 seconds. She was the final barrel racer in the regular competition before Championship Sunday.

Combined with her first-round time of 17.54, she leads the overall standings with a total of 35.30 seconds. Miller had a big smile on her face and was giving Sister some love as she rode out of the arena.

The duo won the first round and tied for fifth in the second round. She has already won nearly $10,000 at CFD and stands to add to it significantly Sunday. Miller is currently second in the world standings. A big win here could help her narrow the gap.
