Athlete Roster set for Days of ’47 Lewis Feild Bulls & Broncs
WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH (January 21, 2020) – Just as the teams have been set for the 2020 Super Bowl, so have the athletes scheduled to compete for a share of $137,000 in prize money at the Days of ’47 Lewis Feild Bulls and Broncs, Saturday, February 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah.
Leading the field in the bareback riding, Lewis Feild’s signature event, is five-time Wrangler NFR qualifier Orin Larsen, who finished the 2019 season in the PRCA as reserve world champion. He will be tested by Utah native Jessy Davis who was mentored by the late Lewis Feild, and Garrett Shadbolt of Merriman, Nebraska who won the 2019 PRCA Rookie of the Year title. The individual with the highest marked ride will earn an automatic qualification to the 2020 Days of ’47 Cowboy Games & Rodeo in July.
In addition, this event will also serve as a World Champions Rodeo Alliance (WCRA) Semifinal event. The top eight in the bareback and saddle bronc will advance for a chance at their share of $1 million at the WCRA Royal City Roundup in Kansas City, Feb. 28, 2020. The top four in the bull riding will also advance to the WCRA’s $1M event at the Sprint Center.
The classic event of rodeo – Saddle Bronc Riding – will be one to watch at the Maverik Center with Isaac Diaz leading the way. Diaz of Desdemona, Texas, is a past WCRA champion and has qualified for the NFR six times in his career. He will have his work cut-out for him with Australian Jake Finlay, who is currently going to school at Oklahoma Panhandle State University in Goodwell, Oklahoma; Shorty Garrett, a descendent of the legendary Casey Tibbs and nephew of ProRodeo Hall of Fame bareback riders Marvin and Mark Garrett; Chet Johnson, a four-time NFR qualifier and champion at Spanish Fork (Utah) Fiesta Days Rodeo in 2019 and Cole Elshere, who has made it to “Rodeo’s Super Bowl” a total of three times.
The bull riding will be highlighted by Josh Frost of Randlett, Utah a third-generation cowboy and a second-cousin to the late Lane Frost. Josh Frost competed in his first NFR this past December. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the Finals he was hoping for so he is ready to get things rolling again at the Lewis Feild Bulls and Broncs. Jesse Petri of Palestine, Texas, will look to improve on his second place finish at the 2019 Lewis Feild Bulls and Broncs. Last year, Petri won the long round with a score of 80.5 points but Coleman Entze captured the title with an 86 in the short round.
The night will feature 12 contestants in each of the three events with the top two per event returning for a sudden-death final round to determine the 2020 champions. With free pony rides for the kids preshow, hilarious clowns and good family fun, make this your winter western escape. Spend the weekend and enjoy all the Great Salt Lake Valley has to offer including world class skiing.
The event honors the late ProRodeo Hall of Fame cowboy Lewis Feild. Feild was Utah’s own two-time PRCA World Champion Bareback Rider and three-time All-Around Champion, who continues to be an icon in the sport of rodeo and the Beehive State. His son, Kaycee Feild carries on his legacy having won four PRCA world titles in the bareback riding.
