“I’d been struggling with my calf roping before Calgary, and I thought I’d really have a better change in the bulldogging,” Grant admitted, “But I’d gone to another rodeo in Alberta right before that and roped sharp, and I just carried the momentum to Calgary.”
Grant’s total earnings for the week were a whopping $141,000.
Grant rode his 16-year-old grey gelding, Mack, in a tie-down, and his 9-year-old bay gelding, Skip, in the dogging, with his 17-year-old gelding Todd hazing.
“I knew I had a good calf. I tied him in 7.4 in the third round of my pool,” Grant said. “I didn’t really watch the other guys go, and I just knew, at the worst, I’d come out fo there with $10,000, so I went and roped. Being from Canada, winning Calgary is just what I’ve dreamed of. When I was little, the good calf in the practice pen would be the $50,000 short-round calf at Calgary. Now it’s $100,000. It’s amazing.”
