Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October LETHBRIOQE HERALD-15 Nine Canadian cowboys listed in latest world rodeo standings By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The 1974 rodeo season is fast drawing to a close, both in Canada and in the United States. Canada's last rodeo will be Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 at Caroline. Alberta while the final rodeo south of the border is the big Grand National at the San Francisco Cow Palace ending Nov. 3. Nine Canadian cowboys are vitally interested in the remaining rodeos in the United States, and of course in Canada. These nine Canadians are all listed in the world standings' top 20. However only the top 15 qualify for the National Finals rodeo in Oklahoma City on Dec. 11-15 so a few of the Canadian boys will have to get Hot these last few weeks. j Bareback bronc rider Dale Trottier. the Canadian champion in his event for past five consecutive years, will have to make a few dollars over the next weeks in to move'up from his 17th position in the world ratings. Trottier has in the bank thus far in 1974. but that amount is short of 15th spot in the world and a trip to the finals. Trottier's bank account is small though, when compared to the leader in the world bareback standings. Joe Alexander. Alexander has pocketed a "record and is still adding to his 1.000 lead over second placed Rusty Riddle. Alexander hails from Cora. Wyoming and Riddle is a Texas rider. Lee Phillips of Carseland has a lot in common with Trottier. Like Trottier he has a big lead in first place in the Canadian standings in his event and is also in the 17th hole" in the world listings. That's where the similarity ends however, as Phillips has a better shot at making the U.S; Finals than Trottier. Phillips has earned over the year and is only out of 15th spot in the world in the race for the steer wrestling championship. Phillips is only the second Canadian to be in a position to go to the Finals. Big Dave Penner of Scandia was the first Canadian to ever attend the Finals rodeo. Jim Gladstone, the only Canadian to ever qualify for the world championships at Oklahoma City twice in the calf roping, is in a position to attend his third Finals, but he has to win or more before he will move into 15th spot. He is currently listed 20th, but with the big money usually up in the roping event he has a good opportunity to move up. He has won to date. The world leader in both the calf roping and the steer wrestling events, is young Tom Ferguson of Miami. Oklahoma. Ferguson is also on his way to setting a record for most money won over all in one rodeo season as he leads the all around standings with Two Canadians. Mel Hyland and Brian Clay pool, are listed among the top 15 in the all around race. Claypool is 12th in the all around standings with of which has come froth the bull riding event where he ranks eighth best in the business. Claypool. like Gladstone, leads his event in the Canadian standings. While Claypool is assured a trip to the Finals, both in Canada and the States, he has no chance of winning the world bull riding title as he is behind the world's leader Don Gay of Mesquite. Texas. The saddle bronc event is where Canadians are really shining. No less than five Canadians are listed in the top 15 in the event led by John McBeth of Burden. Kansas with Mel Hyland. who is 13th in the all around race and a past world champion in the saddle event, is fifth in this year's standings. He has won but has no chance of over taking McBeth. Transplanted Texan Bobby Brown of Granum is ninth in the standings with most of which has come in the last half of the season. Veteran Marty Wood is in llth place with but he won't make it to the finals- Wood suffered a bad break of his left leg recently just above the knee when a horse fell on him. Melvih Coleman. who captured the Calgary stampede bronc riding and is leading in Canada, is 12th in the standings with and young Jim Kelts of Consort is 14th. Kelts has picked up While no Canadian has a shot at a world title, they are well represented in the standings. Canada is holding its first National Finals rodeo in Edmonton Nov. 4-9 and all of the aboye mentioned cowboys, with the exception of Bobby "Brown, will be competing. Only the top 10 go to the Finals in Canada. Rodeo is enjoying its biggest season money wise in both Canada and the States and ranks well up the list as one of the top spectator sports around today.
