Stace Smith

From Staff Reports

Talk about consistent: Stace Smith Pro Rodeos of Henderson County was named the PRCA Stock Contractor of the Year at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo last week.

That is the eighth consecutive year Smith has won the award. Only one other time in the award’s history has anyone won as many times.

Voting is by all contract personnel (announcers, pickup men, etc.), along with the stock contractors, rodeo committees (one vote per committee) and the top 100 contestants in each event.

According to the company’s website, Smith produces more PRCA rodeos than any other stock contractor in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

A long-time Henderson County resident, Smith has been a rodeo contestant, worked as a chute boss and was also a pickup man before becoming a stock contractor. In 2005, he was chosen as pickup man for the Texas Circuit finals.
