Tillar Murray Takes the Win in Barrel Racing for Round 7 of the 2017 National Finals Rodeo
Murray is in her first trip to the Finals. Through her first six rounds she had placed twice. Then came the win tonight with a 13.40.
“I can’t believe that I won a go-round,” she said. “I am just so happy to be here. I’ve wanted to be at the NFR ever since I was a little kid. Just being here is cool. I really had no expectation of winning a round. There is just no way to describe it. It is the coolest feeling.”
Her horse, Commander, is adjusting to the arena.
“I am so excited,” she said. “I was nervous being last out on the ground, but Commander really handled it well. I couldn’t have asked him to work any better. He exceeded all expectations and I am so proud of him.”
