The third pen of steers at the 2023 Wrangler National Finals averages 525 lbs, and this should be the fastest pen of team roping steers that will go in Rounds 6 and 9 as well.
With three great chances early, three of the top teams could put pressure on the pack to speed up in a big way.
Clint Summers and Jake Long: 48
Medium, and one of the go-round picks
Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins: 50
Medium and high-headed, so it’s a chance to be fast.
Tanner Tomlinson and Patrick Smith: 58
Medium, with a possible round win chance.
Erich Rogers and Paul Eaves: 54
This is the curly hair charolais. He’s medium and wide-legged.
Rhen Richard and Jeremy Buhler: 45
Coleman Proctor and Logan Medlin: 51
Medium-plus, probably the strongest one of the pen.
Dustin Egusquiza and Levi Lord: 55
Medium plus and a step to the right in the run-through both times.
Nelson Wyatt and Jonathan Torres: 14
Derrick Begay and Colter Todd: 19
Kaleb Driggers and Junior Noguiera: 59
Tyler Wade and Wesley Thorp: 49
Luke Brown and Hunter Koch: 11
Medium and level-headed
Jake Cooper Clay and Tyler Worley: 18
Marcus Theriot and Cole Curry: 60
This is the red and white Hereford. This is the fourth year there’s been a 60 on a Hereford, and every year they’ve won at least one to two rounds on a #60 Hereford. He’s medium, high-headed and steps right. This is the best chance for the go-round win.
Clay Smith and Paden Bray: 39
