Odessa, Texas Jackpot Breakdown with Cody Snow
Cody Snow breaks down his and Wesley Thorp's winning run from the 27th Annual Invitational Open Team Roping Jackpot in Odessa, Texas.

Situation: 

Short-round steer at the 27th Annual Invitational Team Roping Jackpot in Odessa, Texas

Time:

5.7 seconds

Outcome:

32.01 seconds on five head, first in the average worth $7,500 a man

Horse: 

I call him Mikey. He’s a 14-year-old horse I bought a couple weeks ago. He scores really good, and he’s super easy to catch on and handle the steer. That was a really hard setup—getting out. That horse made it easy.

Steer:

This steer ran pretty strong. Kolton Schmidt and Hunter Koch made a really good run right before us, so we had to be 6.5 to win it. I just wanted to make sure I got out for sure. He tried it on pretty good. I had a throw, so I took the chance, and we ended up being 5.7.

Start: 

The start was pretty long and the steers were strong. It was hard to make a good run in that arena when you have a strong steer.

Handle: 

I just tried to make sure I didn’t hit the steer too hard and give a clean read so that Wesley (Thorp) could make a good entry and catch him as fast as possible.

Thorp:

I thought Wesley was pretty aggressive. He roped him really good. He did a good job all day just catching.

Left Hand:

I wanted to hold up a tick longer on that steer because he was running so hard. I didn’t want to step out too early and hit him too hard. I was just making sure that I had the steer’s head and feet paired up before I went left. I just wanted to make sure my horse stayed square to the steer.
