On a warm, sunny afternoon in Quesnel Sept. 15, Wacey Marr of Gang Ranch rode his way into the record books as he capped off the 2012 rodeo season with a solid ride on WWE Rodeo Company’s saddle bronc horse Big Heart to secure himself the BCRA Saddle Bronc Finals Championship title.
It was the first finals win for the handy cowboy, who spends his working days in the saddle as well, riding the range (as cow boss) on the world-famous Gang Ranch. Marr, who is well known on the working cowboy ranch competition circuit as a capable hand and a good bronc rider, has only been entering BCRA rodeos for the past couple of years.
He’s obviously picked up the winning technique quickly; hard to throw, Marr is a consistent visitor to the pay window. This title will likely encourage him to continue competing for a while.
It was a good day at the rodeo.
