 CINCH Boyd Gaming Chute-Out Confirms World Champion Competitors for 2016
The CINCH Boyd Gaming Chute-Out, set for Dec. 8-10 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, is right around the corner and today, Boyd Gaming announced some of the world-champion rodeo talent that will be competing in the event, including Luke Branquinho and Wade Sundell (Chute-Out Barrel Racing First Place Carmel Wright). 

Five-time world champion Luke Branquinho will compete in Steer Wrestling, bringing his fifteen years of rodeo experience with him to the arena. Branquinho holds the distinction of having competed in and won nearly every big rodeo in the country.

Wade Sundell made headlines in the rodeo world with his $1 million win at the RFD-TV The American rodeo earlier this year. The Iowa native has qualified to ride in the WNFR seven times and will compete in Saddle Bronc Riding.

Also confirmed to compete in this year’s Boyd Gaming Chute-Out for a competition purse totaling $200,000 are Joe Beaver and McCoy Profili, and Clay Tryan and Jade Corkill for Team Roping; Steven Peebles for Bareback Riding; Cort Scheer for Saddle Bronc; Chandler Bownds for Bull Riding; and Lindsey Sears for Barrel Racing. A total of 64 participants will compete during the action-packed, three-day, afternoon rodeo event in a series of contests: Bareback Riding, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Tie-Down Roping, Barrel Racing and Bull Riding.

The 2015 Chute-Out introduced an unprecedented level of rodeo fan involvement with the Boyd Gaming Chute-Out app, featuring rodeo’s first-ever automated “Day Sheet.” The event also broke new ground in rodeo sports betting, with Chute-Out events being the only rodeo events listed in Boyd Gaming’s Las Vegas sportsbooks during Rodeo Week. The Chute-Out will be listed again in Boyd Gaming sportsbooks around Las Vegas, and the Chute-Out app will see several user-friendly upgrades.

The CINCH Boyd Gaming Chute-Out complements Boyd Gaming’s significant involvement during Rodeo Week in Las Vegas, including hosting fan-favorite events like the National Finals Tonight Show and the Legendary Buck’N Ball at The Orleans Hotel and Casino; Bob Tallman Celebrity Bowling Tournament at Gold Coast Hotel and Casino; and Buckin’ Bull Party mechanical bull contest, which will premiere for the first time this year at Fremont Hotel and Casino.

Tickets start at $30 and are on sale now. To purchase tickets or room and ticket packages, to download the app or for further information about all of Boyd Gaming’s WNFR events, visit
