Glasby aiming for rodeo win
WARWICK bull rider Scott Glasby is in the form to go one better than his second place last year in the open bull ride at the Warwick Rodeo.
Last weekend, Glasby won the bull ride at Narrabri with a score of 79 on the Gill Brothers bull Christmas Lights and is one of the favourites for his hometown rodeo.
In late September he was a bull ride winner at the Fernvale Rodeo.
Last year, Glasby qualified in the top 15 for the National Finals Rodeo in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association.
Glasby has been injured for part of the current season and at the end of September was not in the top 20 in the standings.
The win at Narrabri has boosted his finals chances and he has another chance at Lismore this weekend when he jumps on another Gill Brothers bull.
Glasby won't be the only Warwick rider with a good chance at next weekend's Warwick Rodeo.
In the saddle bronc ride, Warwick riders fill positions four to six in APRA standings.
Lucas Wilson is fourth, Mark Collins fifth and Michael Maher sixth. Collins is second in the rookie saddle bronc standings.
A past runner-up in the event in Warwick, Scott Keogh is another local desperate to win his hometown rodeo.
Keogh only travels to a small number of rodeos and is not in the top 20 but has mixed it with the best in the United States and could easily win the top money at the Warwick Showgrounds.
All four will ride in the Lismore Show Rodeo this weekend. Keogh is on Be Cheeks late tomorrow.
On Saturday, Collins is on Sugar Babe, Wilson has drawn Little Joe and Maher will ride Blue Lagoon.
Millmerran cowboy and past APRA pro tour winner Peter Moffatt is back from injury and is another to watch at “the most famous rodeo in Australia”.
