Reno Rodeo Release


The stands were filled with smiling faces of all ages at Kids Night at the Reno Rodeo. The Reno Rodeo Foundation presented local families with a total of $30,000 as part of the Reno Rodeo Wish program and Charles Sadleir who served as president from 1935–1948 was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

 The contestants did not disappoint with exciting action in every event. Bulldogger Juan Alcazar Jr., had the fastest time in steer wrestling with an impressive 4.9. 

 Nine-time NFR header David Key and seven-time champ of the world Rich Skelton tied for fasted time of the night with Taylor Winn and Dylin Ahlstrom.

 Jill Welsh won in Reno in 2015, but tonight it was Stevi Hillman, No. 7, who had the fastest time around the barrels.

Bull rider Sage Steele Kimzey showed the sold-out crowd why he’s No. 1 in the world, scoring an 85.5 on Flying 5 Rodeo’s Bombs Away and making it look easy.
