FORT WORTH, Texas – There’s a man in RFD-TV’s The American Semi-Finals barrel racing making his second run at the million-dollar side pot offered to contestants not automatically invited through the WPRA year-end standings. He’s 6’1’ tall, riding a horse who’s 14.1 and sometimes drags his foot in the dirt when he drops to turn. You can’t miss him. He’s wearing tie-dye. Once you know his story, his gender, short horse, long legs and hippie clothes won’t be what you remember about Jimmy Bryant. You’ll only remember his heart.
“Last year, Cowboy (Little Bit Of A Cowboy) took us all the way to AT&T Stadium,” Bryant said. “We’re hoping to do the same this year because there’s a little girl and her family in Bloomfield, Kentucky, who need our help.”
Stella Prewitt is just 16 months old. Her parents are barrel racing friends of Bryant’s. When he and Cowboy were headed home from qualifying for the semi-finals, he learned that Stella had been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and will be in chemo for years to come due to the high recurrence rate.
“They’re working people with a very sick baby girl,” Bryant said. “We started a Go Fund Me for them because Sara should be able to stay home and comfort her daughter and not have the additional stress of worrying about missing work.”
They’re running to win but doing it on heart. HUGE heart!
Jimmy Bryant and Little Bit Of A Cowboy 17th place run to advance in RFD-TV's The American Semi-Finals presented by DISH.
