2019 Canadian Champion: Brooke Wills

First Time's The Charm For 2019 Canadian Champion Barrel Racer Brooke Wills

Nov 6, 2019

First time's the charm for the 2019 Canadian Champion Barrel Racer Brooke Wills who took home the title on her first trip to the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Red Deer, Alberta. Wills started off her rookie appearance at the CFR by knocking down two barrels, but the first-time jitters didn't last long.

After round one knocked her down in the aggregate race, Wills let it all hang out and never failed to pick up a round check again through the rest of the finals. Back-to-back wins in rounds four and five meant that come championship Sunday, she had worked herself back into Canadian title contention.

She may have been at her first Canadian Finals, but she showed veteran talent under pressure when she managed to place second in the final round, move up to fifth in the aggregate, and ultimately earn enough to win the 2019 Canadian Barrel Racing title.
