WATCH: Brody Cress scores 75.5, does not qualify for 2021 CFD Semi Finals
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Hillsdale native and Cheyenne East Graduate Brody Cress had to wait until the last day of Quarter Finals to start the defense of his three straight CFD Saddle Bronc titles.
Cress was able to hold on for the eight but was only rewarded 75.5 points from the judges. He was immediately eliminated as that score was already out of the top-four, which he needed to be in to advance to the upcoming Semi Finals.
Despite the disappointing outcome, Cress was still positive after his ride.
“This rodeo is amazing,” said Cress. “It’s my hometown rodeo. I get to ride in front of people who helped me throughout my entire life and it set me up to have the success I’ve had, so it’s more special to get to come ride in front of them and see them since I’m not here very often. But now we just got to keep moving on and go to the next one.”
CFD Semi Finals start on Friday and continue Saturday. The Daddy of ‘Em All Rodeo kicks off after the Grand Entry, which starts at 12: 45 p.m.
