CFR46 to host first ever Canadian Finals Breakaway

A new platform for women to compete at the Canadian Finals Rodeo has opened up.

Wednesday, CFR announced that they will host the Canadian Finals Breakaway during CFR46.

From Oct. 31 to Nov. 1, top breakaway ropers from across Canada will compete for the first Canadian Open Breakaway Champion and a historic payout. The two-day event will feature a qualifier and semi-final on day one, with finalists moving on to an elimination style event on day 2.

CFR45: A New Future

Participants will be eligible to compete at the CFB by qualifying through sanctioned open breakaway jackpots throughout the season in Canada. In the rodeo world, there are few avenues for women to compete in breakaway after high school and college.

“Breakaway Roping is opening up new opportunities for female contestants in rodeo. It is keeping women engaged with riding and roping. It is inspiring young women to dream about being champions,” said Margo FitzPatrick, co-creator of the Canadian Finals Breakaway in a press release.

“I can’t think of a better platform to showcase the tremendous female talent we have here in Canada.”

The winner of the event will be crowned the Canadian Open Breakaway Champion.

The CFR will bring the best rodeo athletes from around the world to Red Deer in 2019, from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 at the Centrium.
