LAS VEGAS– Kaycee Feild, son of legendary cowboy Lewis Feild, joined his father in the ranks of national title winners in the sport of rodeo on Friday night in front of 17,822 fans at the Thomas and Mack Center. It was apparent that Kaycee came to win his first title after he won the first three rounds of this year’s National Finals Rodeo. Although there is one more round of rodeo to be competed, after the 9th go round on Friday Kaycee had won the world title. 

“I didn’t know I had won actually,” Feild said in a press interview shortly after splitting the fourth place money in the 9th go round.

“It’s a dream come true, I’ve been through these things myself and to see my son do it, I don’t know how it could get any better,” said Feild’s father, who won two titles in the bareback competition and three in the all-around competition in the 1980’s.

Feild will compete in the 10th go round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Saturday night to determine his standing in the average and in the “Ram Top Gun Award.”
