ProRodeo Results Wrap-Up: Jan. 22, 2018
Tsinigine and Lockett Win at Denver; Wojciechowski and Ashford lead Fort Worth.

Aaron Tsinigine and Kyle Locket won the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver, Colorado with a time of 16.2 seconds on three head, worth $5,949 each. They didn’t win any money in rounds one and two, but their team placed second in the final round with a 5.7 second run, worth $1,176 a man. This duo is currently sitting fifth in the PRCA World Standings with a total of $8,938.77 and $10,814.12 won, respectively.

“I got there just in time,” Lockett said. “I had a few flights get cancelled. I was supposed to get there at 11, but I didn’t get there until 2 p.m. The roads were terrible, with people slipping and sliding everywhere. I bailed out at the front door, got by a ticket lady and a security guard, ran down through the stands and got behind the heading box. Clint Robinson was on my heel horse warmed up at the bucking chutes. I’m always a little behind, but that was too close.”

Tsinigine and Lockett have been second partners for a few years now, while Lockett has been in semiretirement. But after winning second at Salt Lake City’s Days of ’47 in 2017 and having enough to get into the big winter rodeos, seven-time WNFR heeler Lockett finally cracked back out for the first time since 2005.

“We’ve always roped a little in the spring,” Tsinigine said. “It’s really pretty cool, and I’m glad he finally decided to come try it again with me.” 

Tsinigine was aboard the originally-named Yeller, a 9-year-old palomino he bought in 2017 from Colorado’s Ross Gosney. Lockett rode a 12-going-on-5-year-old sorrel he borrowed from his own kids that he calls Stinky. 

“I started riding him last fall, and rode him at the Cinch Shoot-Out in Vegas,” Lockett said. “I guess this was his first really big rodeo.”

The short round had fallen apart long before Lockett ever ran into the building, allowing the duo to just go rope him and stop the clock. 

“He left sharp, and stepped to me,” Tsinigine said. “He wasn’t as good as I thought he’d be, but he was a good one to have to just catch.” 

Tsinigine and Lockett loaded up and headed south to Texas, where they’ll look to add more to their PRCA world standings totals in Fort Worth.

Tyler Wojciechowski and Ross Ashford are currently leading the average with 10.7 seconds on two head at the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show in Fort Worth, while Coleman Proctor and Billie Jack Saebens are second with 14.0 seconds on two head.
