Since Zeke Thurston’s time as a Sheridan College General he’s won two saddle-bronc riding gold buckles and many big rodeos in the U.S. and in his Canadian homeland. A Cheyenne Frontier Days buckle and saddle is in sight now after a semifinals performance on Friday that ended with the high-marked bronc ride of ‘The Daddy’ thus far. Zeke gathered 89.5 points on Centennial-based Summit Pro Rodeo’s ‘Corina.’ Thurston has won $5,300 at CFD and will have the opportunity to pocket much more at the Sunday Finals. He checked out his Summit horse with owner J.D. Hamaker so Zeke knew what to expect.
