Round 9

Speed Set: Summer & Long Get High-Money Steer for What’s Usually Rodeo’s Fastest Round
Round 9 is fixing to be fast.
Roping Steer NFR

World title contenders Clint Summers and Jake Long have drawn steer #60, the Hereford that’s averaged 3.8 seconds in its first two rounds and is Hill Rodeo Cattle’s Bobby Joe Hill’s pick of the herd.

There are three extras in the herd, including the steer Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira ran in Round 6 after their first steer was bloated and their second steer wouldn’t stand up on Wednesday morning.
