Five wins in a row for cow­boy Lee

Owen is chas­ing more

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

RODEO: He has won his last five rodeos but Owen Lee is still hun­gry for more – eye­ing off a dou­ble de­light this week­end.

The Proser­pine cow­boy con­tin­ued his stel­lar run of form on Satur­day night at the Australia Pro­fes­sional Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion’s Nebo Rodeo, scor­ing 79 points on last year’s Aus­tralian buck­ing horse of the year run­ner-up – Lit­tle Egypt.

“I’ve rid­den him once be­fore in the third round of the na­tional fi­nals. He’s a tough horse and takes some rid­ing,” Lee ex­plained.

“I knew she was the one to win on and she was good to me. Horses love the Nebo arena and al­ways buck good there.”

The bare­back horse rider net­ted $1250 for the win and a fur­ther con­fi­dence booster – not that he needed it.

“It’s a pretty cool feel­ing (to win five in a row),” he said.

“This week­end be­ing the last week­end of May... hope­fully I can get my­self a clean month. I’ve never had a full month of win­ning be­fore. I nearly did it in Fe­bru­ary but I ended up with three out of four wins af­ter fin­ish­ing sec­ond at the fourth (rodeo).

“I’ve been drawing good but the horses are tough. I’m still very sore the next day.”

Lee will take on the Bund­aberg Show Rodeo on Fri­day night and back-up on Satur­day for the APRA Mo­ran­bah Rodeo.

‘I’ve been drawing good but the horses are tough. I’m still very sore the next day.’
