Breuer cashes in at Corn Palace Stampede
Casey Breuer continued the strong run of family bareback rides on Sunday.
The Mandan, North Dakota cowboy scored an 84 on the horse "Tumbling Dice" during the final night of the four-night Corn Palace Stampede Rodeo.
Breuer's ride was the high-point ride for the night and it tied Tate Schwagler's 84 on Thursday night overall for the rodeo. Breuer and Schwagler, also from Mandan, each pocketed $1,723 for their rides.
It was another big payday for a bareback rider named Breuer. Casey's brother, Ty Breuer, recently won the Sheridan, Wyoming rodeo and took home $5,237.
Casey Breuer will meet up with his brother and another traveling partner/bareback rider, Tanner Aus, soon for more rodeos. The riders are all chasing a spot in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada in December.
"We kind of fuel each other and we want each other to ride good and that helps out," Casey Breuer said. "It dang sure makes a big difference with the guys you travel with."
He's been doing his part. He tied Aus for the top spot at the Sitting Bull Stampede Rodeo in Mobridge during the Fourth of July. They each won $1,604.
"I kind of had a decent Fourth and then after the Fourth, I started drawing pretty dang good again," Breuer said. "So rodeos have been fun again."
The fun continued on Sunday for Breuer with his 84 on the horse from the Sutton Rodeo Company bucking stock. The horse used to buck in the bronc riding and he had asked some bronc riders for a scouting report.
"She finished really good too and I was lucky to get a good one, too," he said of "Tumbling Dice". "That's for sure. That is half your score."
Heith DeMoss, who rode on Thursday night, finished in the top spot in the saddle bronc riding. He took home $2,425. DeMoss entered the week 13th in the world standings and continued his strong season with the ride on Thursday.
