Burk Rides Backup Mount to Lead at Cheyenne Frontier Days

The top ranked calf roper in pro rodeo made a major move at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. Blair Burk of Durant, Oklahoma, has been to the national finals the last seven years. He tied his calf in 13.1 seconds to take the overall lead. Burk accomplished the task while using his backup horse. His regular horse came down with a viral infection at the Calgary Stampede earlier this month.

His cumulative time is 26.1 seconds. That's a 1.7 second lead over Guy Miller of O'Donnell, Texas. Killeen, Texas cowgirl Melanie White is the second round and overall leader in barrel racing. A new arena record was set in rookie saddle broncs when John Jones of Roswell, New Mexico rode to an 83 point score.
