FORT WORTH – The first round of bull riding and barrel racing along with the second round of bareback and saddle bronc riding events came to a close at the evening performance of the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo.

The big money winner was Cody Whitney in the bull riding. Whitney of Asher, Okla., rode Rafter G’s Big D for 89 points Saturday night and pocketed over $5,600 for the first place position. He will compete on his second bull at Sunday afternoon’s performance and is looking to get enough points to make it to the final round.

Barrel racer Jordon Peterson rode away $3,400 richer after holding on to the lead in the first round. Peterson’s time of 16.75 seconds proved too hard to beat by the other girls. Her time of 33.61 on two runs is still leading the overall standings with only one more performance to go. Peterson will return for the final round and make a run for the championship.

It took 22 performances for the lead in the bareback to change, but Bobby Mote of Culver, Ore., made it happen. Mote, two-time world champion, had an 86-point ride to win the second round and collect a check for $2,500.

Kaycee Feild was the stronghold leader prior to Mote and did not go away empty handed. He ended the round in second place, receiving over $1,900. Feild still holds the lead in the overall standings with 253 points.

JJ Elshere, 2006 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo saddle bronc riding average champ, posted an 87-point ride at the second performance of the rodeo setting the lead in the second round. Elshere of Quinn, S.D., held on to that lead for 25 performances and received a check for nearly $3,000. He is currently sitting at the top of the heap overall with 253 points on three rides, putting him 11 points ahead of the rest of the field. He will be a favorite for the championship here.

There is one performance and the final round at the Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo presented by Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show on Sunday. The 29th performance starts at 2 p.m. and the final round begins at 7:30 p.m.
