Koby Radley made his Wrangler NFR debut last year but was unable to win a round. That is not the case this year after his 92 point ride topped the leaderboard in Round 3.

“I didn’t get a round win last year, and that was one of my goals this year. It’s huge for my confidence to get a big win early in the Finals.”

Radley was quick to credit his bull, Big Stone Rodeo Inc.’s Spotted Demon, for his career-best ride.

"I knew a lot of it was the bull. He has been around a long time and I’d seen a lot of good guys get on him and a lot of good guys get bucked off him."

Radley added, “It’s huge to ride Spotted Demon and to be 92 on him and win a round on him. To be able to ride one of the greatest bulls of all time is great. You are on Cloud 9; he was stout and all there, and I felt all 92 points out of him.”
