RENO, NEV.; June 23, 2014 --- Adding a Reno Rodeo championship to a contestant’s not only earns them a pile of money and championship spurs, it can be the catalyst that gets them to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

One of those contestants that was here on Tuesday night is Ryan MacKenzie from Jordan Valley, Ore. MacKenzie took the lead in the first round of saddle bronc riding with an 83-point effort on Big Bend Rodeo’s Crash Gate.

While he has been a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association since 2006, he has yet to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He is currently ranked 12th in the world standings and needs to stay in the top 15 through September to make the trip to Las Vegas to compete in rodeo’s championship event.

MacKenzie is very likely to earn a check here in the first round and with a successful ride on Wednesday night, he has the potential to be among the top 12 saddle bronc riders here who advance to Saturday night’s finals. MacKenzie comes from a ranching family and is the youngest of three brothers who have competed here.

Chet Johnson from Sheridan, Wyo., and Bradley Harter from Weatherford moved into a tie for second place in the first round thanks to their 82-point rides on Tuesday. Fourth place is Cody DeMoss from Heflin, La.

The reigning and three-time bareback champion Kaycee Feild Spanish Fork, Utah took the lead in the first round of bareback riding as well. Feild was 84 points on Flying Five Rodeo’s Spy. Feild knows firsthand what a difference a Reno Rodeo win makes. He was the champion in 2009, the second time he qualified for the NFR. He won it outright in 2012, the second time he won a world championship.

The bareback horses were just as strong as the saddle broncs. Jessy Davis from Power, Mont., was 83 and is now in second place. Joel Schlegel from Burns, Colo., and Josi Young from Buhl, Idaho are tied for third with 82.

The sixth performance begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Tickets are available at www.renorodeo.com or by calling 800-325-7328. For more information, please call 775-329-3877.
