Moore cashes in at Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo
Written by: Susan Kanode< Back to Articles
FORT WORTH, Texas (January 30, 2018) — One year ago, Amberleigh Moore and her mare CP Dark Moon that she calls Paige saw the highs and lows of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.
It was the first time they had ever competed in Will Rogers Coliseum and after a very successful Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) they were hopeful that their momentum would continue. They stopped the clock in 16.62 seconds and won third in the first round.
That earned them a second opportunity and then disaster struck. Coming away from the third barrel, Moore’s cinch broke. As they were exiting the arena, she came off and hit the gate. Despite the mishap, she finished in ninth place overall in 2017.
Putting all of that behind her and checking her cinches twice, she and Paige ran again here last Saturday in the 14th performance. They stopped the clock in 16.35 seconds That was the fastest time of the rodeo so far and earned them a $5,175 check for the top spot in the first round. The remaining seven performances before Saturday night’s Championship Finals will see the 70 barrel racers with the fastest times in a second round of competition. The 12 with the fastest overall times compete in the finals.
Two world champions, partnered in the team roping, have taken the overall lead here. Matt Sherwood, from Pima, Arizona, and Walt Woodard, from Stephenville, Texas, stopped the clock in 5.0 seconds at the Tuesday matinee to give them a total time of 10.1 seconds.
They now have an edge of one-tenth of a second over the team in second place, Luke Brown from Rock Hill, South Carolina and Jake Long from Coffeyville, Kansas. At Tuesday night’s performance, teams had their first round of competition. Three teams had runs under six seconds and have the potential to move into the overall standings. Among those are Shane Philip from Washington, Texas, and Joel Bach from Mount Vernon, Texas. Bach won this rodeo in 2010 roping with Paul Eaves.
The World’s Original Indoor Rodeo® continues its 100th-anniversary edition Wednesday with performances at 2 and 7:30 p.m., in the historic Will Rogers Coliseum.
