Hot Shot calls the shots at Jacaranda Rodeo

HOT Shot has done it again.

The feature bull at the Jacaranda Rodeo once again refused to carry a cowboy on his back.

This time it was Armidale bull rider Lindsay Frizzell who was mercilessly tossed on to the dirt by the angry beast.

Organiser Dennis Riley said the large crowd had stayed to see Hot Shot in action at the end of the night.

"Hot Shot won nicely," Riley said. "He done his job, come out and did everything perfect.

"He took about three seconds to buck him off then raced straight to a dummy, hoisted it in the air and put on a show for the crowd."

Despite his untimely exit, Frizzell had a good night having already won the novice bull ride, while Ken McLean took out the open bull ride.

Lawrence cowboy Shane Want and Copmanhurst's Matt Goodwin were bucked out on both their rides.

It was a busy weekend for Goodwin who finished second in the novice bull ride having finished fourth at the Murwillumbah rodeo on Friday night.

Tamworth's Bradie Gray won the under-18 steer ride and Luke Parkinson won the under-14 steer ride.
