Trey Yates Dominates Mountain States Circuit Heeling Standings, Adds Alamosa-Round Up Win
Trey Yates maintains his dominant position in the Mountain States Circuit heeling standings with $6,420.44 in earnings.

National Finals Rodeo Average Champ Trey Yates, 27, of Pueblo, Colorado, continues to dominate the Mountain States Circuit heeling standings with $6,420.44 in earnings, including his most recent win for $1,260 at the Alamosa Round-Up.

Currently, Yates, the 2018 RAM Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo Champion, holds the lead by $3,422.30 over Jayden Johnson, 26, of Casper, Wyoming, who is in the No. 2 position with $3,637.93 in earnings.

In the same weekend Yates won the Alamosa Round-Up with a 5.3 second run for $1,260, he claimed an average win in the Texas Circuit at the West Of The Pecos Rodeo with a total time of 14.5 seconds on two head for $2,886 and claimed a win in the Wilderness Circuit at the Reno Rodeo finishing third in Round 2 with a 4.7 second run for $4,542.

“It was our first weekend back rodeoing in a while, and it just felt good to get a couple decent runs under our belt,” Yates said. “I missed the first one at the rodeo at Reno and came back and made a good run on our second one and placed in the round. Then went to Pecos and caught a couple and went to Alamosa and won it and ended up having a decent week.”

As a result of his recent wins, he is currently ranked No.19 in the PRCA World Standings with his total earnings at $32,584.

“Ultimately, I’d like to make the National Finals,” Yates said, “But if they keep adding big money to the NFR Open, then the circuit is a huge impact on me next year, you know, as far as getting to rope against 24 guys for $8 to $10,000 go-rounds is huge.”

Yates has been riding Duke, his 12-year-old sorrel gelding, and Dude, his 13-year-old bay gelding, at the ProRodeos. Yates cracked out Duke for the win at Alamosa.

“They’re both just superb athletes for me,” Yates said. “I love them both and I’m blessed to have them in my arsenal.”

Yates and partner, Tyler Wade, 30 of Terrell, TX, who finished ninth in the World together in 2021, hope to continue their winning streak for the rest of the 2022 ProRodeo season.

“We pretty well took the whole spring off, we’re both behind,” Yates said. “I think we’ll be able to count a lot of rodeos from here on out, go about wherever we want to. So, ultimately it’s up to us. If we don’t do our job, we’re not gonna win. If we do our job, I think we’re a good team.”
