In Tuesday night's performance, Boore caught the rhythm of a strong black horse to earn 73.5 points and move to the top of the round. He will have to sweat through two remaining performances to see if the score holds at the number one position.

With an empty day on Wednesday, the team took advantage of the downtime by fishing and exploring the beautiful country of Kaycee, Wyo. With refreshed minds, the boys will be ready to finish the week strong.

Joe Harper will saddle his third horse of the week Thursday evening. He sits solid in the average on two head but with a strong pen of horses, he will have to bare down to ensure he gets all three horses covered to have a chance at a national title.

In the bull riding, Joe Frost will pull his rope with hopes of scoring high enough to be back Saturday evening for the short round. Frost scored 73 points in the first round.

Jeff Bertus, Jake Watson, Dusty Moore and Frost will be back in action for a packed house on Friday.
