FORT WORTH, Texas — Dickinson saddle bronc rider Shaun Stroh’s wild ride continued on Sunday.
Less than two months after winning the National Finals Rodeo, Stroh picked up his first big win of the 2010 season with an 84-point ride on Jumpin’ Jack in the final round of the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo. The score tied for third in the finals but gave Stroh 253 points on three rides and the average title of $13,009.
“Going into it, the pen of horses were pretty rank and I drew one that fit my style pretty good,” Stroh said Monday.
Stroh had an 84 in the first round and an 85 in the second round in late January of the 28-performance rodeo that spanned three weeks.
“Being able to draw two pretty phenomenal horses there in the long rounds just to be able to make it back is outstanding,” Stroh said.
The win moved him to second place in the PRCA world standings at $15,421.
Stroh has been on a hot streak since September, when a huge money-earning month vaulted him into the NFR, which he won with nine rides over 10 rounds.
“It doesn’t really feel like it ever ended or started again,” Stroh said. “It’s still going, it feels like.”
This weekend, Stroh will be at the San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo, another big-money event, and said he hasn’t decided whether or not he’ll drop out of the Bismarck Civic Center Rodeo.
