Rylea Fabrizio has been laser-focused on capitalizing each time she nods her head in 2023, and that paid off on February 15, 2023 with a $4,500 breakaway derby win at the 2023 Roping Futurities of America.

Fabrizio and Hiss N Up, known as “Jolene,” didn’t cash in during their 2022 RFA showing, so Fabrizio was determind to make it work in 2023.

“Last year I kind of took myself out of it,” Fabrizio said. ” (This year) I just wanted to be aggressive and make the best runs I could.”

The Stephenville, Texas cowgirl was just out of the money in both rounds of competition in Abilene, but she came back to the short round seated within the top-five and completed her run in 2.65 seconds, which clinched her aggregate win with 7.89 seconds on three head.

“I got out good and she worked great,” Fabrizio said. “In the short round, with the set of girls who were behind me I knew I had to make a good run.”

Fabrizio has worked with Jolene since her boyfriend, 2022 NFR heeler Jonathon Torres, found the mare as a three-year-old and encouraged Fabrizio to purchase the now 6-year-old mare. Fabrizio noted that the small mare’s athleticism and speed helped out massively on the stronger cattle cowgirls faced at the RFA.

Fabrizio is looking forward to a jam-packed schedule between jackpots and rodeos in 2023, and still finds time to fit in an administrative job around her roping entries.

“This was my goal,” Fabrizio said. “Lately, I’ve been just entering on one horse. I don’t even enter twice where I can. I told myself to just go rope three calves, do my job and don’t worry about it. They only write first on one check, anyway.”
