Captures her Second Round Win, while Cervi Wins
Third WPRA World Title
By Ted Harbin
12/11/10Angie Meadors won the go-round
in barrel racing for the second time at this year's
Wrangler National Finals Rodeo during the ninth
go-round on Friday night.
Sherry Cervi won the WPRA world championship for
the third time in her career. Cervi, of Marana,
Ariz., clinched the title Friday night, then punctuated
it with a 13.75-second run that was worth $7,344,
a fourth-place check in the go-round.
"It's definitely a dream come true," said
Cervi, who won the other gold buckles in 1995 and
1999. "It's something you dream about as a
little girl. This is the third horse that I've done
it on. Hawk and Troubles got me to where I'm at,
but Stingray's right there with them."
The latter is MP Meter Hay, an 8-year-old palomino
mare out of Miss Meter Jet and by PC Frenchmans
Hayday, otherwise known as Dinero, a WPRA PESI stallion
Cervi rode at the 2005 NFR. Stingray is a smaller
horse that has "really fast feet," she
"I'm so proud of her. She's gotten more solid.
She tries hard every time. Last night (at the South
Point for round buckle presentation) I had a lot
of people on stage with me, and one that should've
been with me was Stingray."
Cervi is No. 2 in the average, just two-hundredths
of a second behind Jill Moody of Letcher, S.D. It
will be a horserace during Saturday's final go-round
to see who wins the NFR.
"Jill's stayed strong all week," Cervi
said. "I want to try to win first, and she'll
like to win first, so we'll see how it goes."
Both Moody and Cervi are on pace to break the average
record of 138.93 seconds, set in 1986 by 11-time
world champion Charmayne James.
Meadors posted her fastest run of the week, a 13.59-second
run on Mulberry Canyon Moon. Mulberry, a 7-year-old
gray mare out of De Streaker by Marthas Six Moons,
was a game-time decision for the Blanchard, Okla.,
a six-time NFR qualifier.
"I knew I had two really nice horses,"
she said, referring to Mulberry and Fanny, a 6-year-old
sorrel mare with a registered name of Fantasia Flame.
"I had to flip a coin to see what horse I was
going to ride tonight.
"I was literally standing there with two saddles
trying to figure out which horse I was going to
ride, the gray or the sorrel."
It worked so well, it might be the deciding factor
for Meadors to use again Saturday.
