Goodine rides comeback trail to round win at CFR 46

Bailey Schellenberg first ever female to qualify for junior steer riding

Cole Goodine isn’t taking anything for granted this time around at the Canadian Finals Rodeo.

Earlier this spring, it was a difficult start to the season for the Carbon cowboy. Goodine broke two bones in his toe and one in the side of his foot, fairly crucial to riding bareback.

It’s been a long road back that eventually led to CFR 46 and a round victory Wednesday for the 22-year-old bareback rider.

“The foot doesn’t seem to want to operate like a normal foot anymore, I have a couple plates in there,” Goodine said.

“But I get on the bucking machine a lot and (the foot) seems to handle clubbing a bareback horse pretty good so that’s all I really care about.”

Goodine had a special trip on Calgary Stampede’s Special Delivery, a horse that helped him also get into the final four in Ponoka his first year as a pro rider. This time around in Red Deer, they delivered again to post an 86.25 to win $10,530 and upped his earnings to $32,137 on the season.

“When I got that draw (Tuesday) I was pretty excited because that’s one of my favourite horses of all time. He looks cool, he’s big and strong and he’s wild, got a big mane. Everything’s cool with him. He’s a handful though, he’s got some moves. He’s never been easy. When I saw him, I knew I had a chance. I was pretty excited for it,” he said.

“It’s huge because with competitors of this calibre that we’re riding against. It’s good to get a good win or a good ride starting out. It makes a huge difference on your mental game. If you have a couple bad rides and you’re struggling right off the start, you have a lot of trouble.”

Orin Larsen is tops in the bareback in the aggregate after day two.

One other special performance that brought the crowd to their feet was young Bailey Schellenberg. The 14-year-old was the first-ever female to qualify in the junior steer riding competition at the CFR. She posted a 71-point qualified ride on day two.

“Pretty good, that cow has never been ridden this year before, so it was a good feeling to get the whistle,” said the Cochrane cowgirl.

In her first CFR, the teen said the crowds have been outstanding and the experience has been one she’ll never forget.

“The crowd and the lights are phenomenal. Better than I could imagine and the stock is really bucking this year,” she added.

Griffin Koester won steer riding with a score of 75. Chett Deitz won the novice bareback and K’s Thompson won the novice saddle bronc.

In steer wrestling, Benton, Arizona product Jason Thomas picked up a round win with a wicked fast time of 3.6-seconds. After two rounds, Curtis Cassidy and Tanner Brunner are tied at 8.3 seconds overall.

Yellowhead County’s Taylor Manning won the ladies barrels with a top time 14.456 seconds. Stacey Ruzicka had her second solid time of the week to move into first on the aggregate after running a 14.509 Wednesday.

Matt Sherwood and Hunter Koch won the round in team roping with a blazing fast time of 3.8-seconds. Overall, Justin and Brett McCarroll lead the aggregate through two days.

Ty Harris registered an 8.0-second time in tie-down roping to take the top spot on the day, while Haven Medeg, Cody McCartney are tied in the aggregate at 17.3-seconds.

Kolby Wachuk of Sherwood Park posted an 85.5 on Outlaw Buckers Comeback Red to lead the round in saddle bronc, while Big Valley’s Zeke Thurston leads the way on aggregate.

The Mexican Magic Man Edgar Durazo was the man once again in the bull riding Wednesday. He posted an 87.75 on Calgary Stampede’s Night Moves to win the round. He has earned $68,976 this season overall and $21,060 at the CFR through two days.

The second round Wednesday kicked off with a moving tribute to Klayton Lakevold, who was injured this summer in a bull riding incident.

Lakevold, 19, a Provost native who was injured riding in Lloydminster in April suffered a brain bleed from the incident. He was in just his second season in the PBR.

The third round performance kicks off at 7 p.m., Thursday. During the day, the semifinal of first-ever Canadian Finals Breakaway Roping gets underway at 12 p.m.
