Texas High School Rodeo and WCRA DY are teaming up to bring a $20,000 bonus to the 2023 THSRA State Finals next June and a direct path to the over $200,000 added Cinch World Championship Junior Rodeo (WCJR) at the Lazy E Arena in July 2023
How Do You Win?
The “WCRA DY Texas Trifecta” will pay a $20,000 cash bonus to any THSRA athlete who wins their respective discipline;
- First in their region
- Wins at least one go-round of competition at the THSRA State Finals
- Wins THSRA State Championship
Must win in the same discipline*
What Disciplines Are Eligible?
The following THSRA disciplines are eligible; bareback, steer wrestling, barrel racing, breakaway roping, tie-down roping, saddle bronc, goat tying, heading, heeling, pole bending, and bull riding.
Invite to The WCJR
In addition to the cash bonus, the highest placing nominated athletes will earn an invite to the 2023 WCJR held in Guthrie, Oklahoma July 25-29. The 2023 WCRA Division Youth (DY) event will have over $200,000 in added prize money and is open to any youth athlete ages 19 and under. The WCJR is one of the largest annual purses in youth rodeo and paid out more than $270,000 in 2022, while crowning new Youth World Champions.
What if Nobody Wins?
In the event no THSRA athlete completes the WCRA Texas Trifecta, the $20,000 cash bonus will be split evenly between all 11 discipline’s THSRA State Champions. If more than one athlete completes the trifecta, then those athletes will split the bonus.
