December 13, 2017 — Las Vegas, Nevada – Murray rode Royal Star Commander to the round win, worth $26,231. “Commander” is a 10-year-old gelding by AR Star and out of Go Royal Scarlett. The fast time moved the duo from No. 7 in the aggregate to No. 6 and from No. 12 in the world standings to No. 9. Murray has had a long journey to the pay window after fracturing her back this summer. She made a strong comeback to qualify for her first NFR. The win marked Murray’s first round win of her first NFR.

No. 1 cowgirl Tiany Schuster placed sixth with a 13.70, keeping a hold on her world standings lead and moving to fourth in the aggregate. Hailey Kinsel, who had been leading the aggregate up to this point, had a little tough luck tipping the third barrel. The downed barrel moved the 23-year-old first-time NFR qualifier out of the No. 1 position in the aggregate race down to No. 5. Ivy Conrado and the ultra-consistent KN Fabs Gift Of Fame (“J-Lo”) moved to No. 1 in the aggregate after round seven.
