Donalda’s Shaylee McMann heads for the line after coming around the final barrel at the Ponoka Stampede June 27. Her time of 17.995 was good enough on opening day, but McMann was knocked out of big money contention as three racers did better the very next day.

Canadian champion bulldogger Cody Cassidy gets down quick on this steer during the opening day performance of the Ponoka Stampede June 27. This run came in at 4.0 seconds, for a combined time of 14.8 and a great chance at making more money in the finals July 2. The results of the Stampede were not available at press time.
