Wrangler National Finals Rodeo

Round 10 Results and Highlights


2007 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo

Round 10 Results and Highlights
Saturday, December 15th

The story of this NFR is Trevor Brazile's earnings record and his capturing of the "Triple-Crown" (in steer roping, all around, and tie-down roping) since 1983.

"It's awesome," said Brazile, who finished the season with a PRCA single-season record $425,115 in earnings. "You're talking about (Triple Crown winners) Roy Cooper and Jim Shoulders, and they're the greatest cowboys to ever live. Anytime you're on the same page as those guys, it's a great accomplishment, and it just means a lot to me."

World Champion: Bobby Mote

"It's been five years in the making, so it feels good," Mote said. "Every year I've come here I've tried, and I ended up second again last year. So, to finish it off is great, especially with this field of bareback riders. I don't know if there's ever been such a good group of bareback riders. It's hard not to be anxious, but I felt confident and just felt like I was challenged. It was a great opportunity. Not many people get to be in a situation where it comes down to the 10th round and you've got to do your best or your whole year is down the drain. This is the third time I've been in this situation, and I've handled it well twice."

World Champion: Jason Miller

"It feels good to win any rodeo, but to win this one is just unbelievable," said Miller, who was competing in just his second Wrangler NFR this year. "I never looked at the numbers or the money all week long. I didn't want to know because I didn't want to get caught up in it all. I just wanted to get a good start and do well in the round, just like all the other nights. Tonight, I didn't think about the average, and rather than safety up and do something dumb, I just got a good start and tried to win something in the round."

World Champion Heeler: Walt Woodard
Another split win this year between teams. Something I think we'll see alot more of in the future.

"I'm still trying to sink it all in right now," said Masters, who finished as runner-up to the world title last year. "I'm sure it'll be different when I see my family and stuff and probably be pretty emotional. (After finishing the run) I actually thought that Clay (Tryan) and Walt had both won it themselves. It was really, really close."

"It's great, and I'm excited," said Woodard. "I wish my partner (Clay Tryan) could have won it, just like Chad wishes that. It's kind of bittersweet when you win it and your partner doesn't. But Chad and I were both in that situation last year – our partners won. And this year we turned it around, but we've been in that position before. We know our partners aren't dead, we can come back with them next year and win with our partners. I'm tickled to death to win it, and Chad couldn’t be a better guy, so it’s great that a guy like that won it."

World Champion: Taos Muncy

"It's unreal. I can't explain it," Muncy said. "I was a nervous wreck every round. I was just trying to hide it from everybody, and I just didn't say anything. I don't know what to say. I just got really lucky and drew good horses. I was just honored to be here riding with all my heroes."

World Champion: Trevor Brazile

"It was just sheer panic," Brazile said of his final tie-down roping run and missing his first loop. "I went over everything that was about to happen tonight, and that wasn't any part of it. I was just trying to get my composure and get it done as fast as possible. I'm just tickled to death that it worked out the way it did. When it's all said and done, I didn't win $189,000 on that 10th calf. I've had a great year, and I've been blessed from start to finish."

"My horse (Stitch) is phenomenal," said Pozzi-Pharr. "I think this is the toughest NFR that I've been to. It ended up being five girls not to hit any barrels, that's phenomenal. This has been the toughest Finals I've ever seen. (Stitch and I) may not have had the fastest runs, but we were definitely the most consistent."

World Champion: Wesley Silcox

"It's a dream come true," said Silcox, who rode seven of his 10 bulls at this year's Wrangler NFR. "This is what I've worked for. I was reserve champion last year, and I just kept trying to improve myself. When I stood up (after getting off the bull), I knew I had it. I finally did it this year."
