Canby Rodeo: Prolific champion Trevor Brazile wins all-around title

The accomplished roper is within reach of the professional rodeo record for most world titles in a career.


by: JEFF GOODMAN - Bobby Mote, the all-around champion of the Canby Rodeo in 2012, competes in bareback riding Aug. 13 at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds. Rodeo star Trevor Brazile claimed the all-around title this year.Spectators at the Aug. 16 edition of this year’s Canby Rodeo might have witnessed history in the making.

Seventeen-time champion Trevor Brazile is one gold buckle away from tying legendary steer roper Guy Allen for the most world titles in a professional rodeo career, and he inched towards that astonishing feat by claiming the all-around title at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds.

Brazile didn’t win either of his events that evening — he placed fourth in team roping with partner Patrick Smith and took fifth in tie-down roping — but he continued his impressive campaign by winning $2,025 at the 56th-annual competition in Canby.

Brazile was one of 471 contestants at the local rodeo this year, a 4% increase from 2012, and one of several reigning or former world champions.

More than $138,000 in prize money was distributed after five nights of competition, which wrapped up Aug. 17.

Wes Stevenson won the bareback riding competition with 88 points on Calgary Stampede’s Twin Cherry, hauling in $3,677.

Bull rider Cheyne Olney earned $3,876 after logging an 88 to claim the bull riding title on Growney Brothers’ No. +930.

Bradley Harter recorded the same score to take top honors in saddle bronc riding on Calgary Stampede’s Knife Money. He was awarded $3,600.

Other event champions included steer wrestler Stan Branco, who reeled in $1,919 after posting a time of 7.4 seconds on two head, and tie-down roper Trent Creager ($,1393). Sherry Cervi emerged victorious in barrel racing with a time of 16.38 seconds, earning $2,449.

The local rodeo comes at a pivotal time in the season for cowboys, who have until the end of September to add to their annual earnings and qualify for the championships in Las Vegas. Indeed, several of the cowboys in Canby left shortly after their performances to travel more than 400 miles to another rodeo in Caldwell, Idaho.

Such is life in professional rodeo.

“As we near the end of our fiscal year, the cowboys are running themselves ragged and going as hard as they can,” longtime announcer Wayne Brooks said. “It’s time to gas it — if you’re healthy. And that’s such a factor. A high percentage of guys, by this time of year, they’re hurt. Either you’re not hurt bad enough so you can overcome the pain, or you have to sit out. There’s no bench in rodeo. When you’re hurt and out for the season, it’s tough because there’s no money rolling in. You just have to recover and hope for a stellar year the following season.”
