The 2024 WRWC breakaway roster has been announced ahead of the world’s richest women’s only rodeo taking place from May 13-18 in the DFW Metroplex.

The WRWC is the largest event purse in the history of women’s rodeo. It will pay out $750,000 in 2024 while crowning World Champions in both the Pro and Challenger classifications in the following disciplines: team roping (heading and heeling), breakaway roping and barrel racing.

Background on the Breakaway Athletes

The roster is highlighted by 2023 All-Around Cowgirl, Martha Angelone (Stephenville, Texas). Angelone earned the ultimate cowgirl accolade last season by accumulating WCRA (World Champions Rodeo Alliance) leaderboard points, then putting an exclamation point on the world all-around race with an impressive showing at the 2023 WRWC. With more than $270,000 in WCRA earnings alone, Angelone is one of the winningest cowgirls in the event’s history. In 2023, she won $89,400 and has a shot at another $120,000 in 2024, as she could strike in both the breakaway and team roping.

Angelone has won three WRWC titles so far. She won the first championship in 2022 in an intense breakaway roping competition, which is considered one of the most ferocious battles in WRWC history, twice invoking the tie-breaker decision en route to the title. In 2023, she won two more titles, riding supreme in both the team roping (heading) and claiming her second title as the world all-around champion.

Angelone will be joined by two-time WRWC Champion Jackie Crawford (Stephenville, Texas) in the team roping. In 2023 the duo had fans inside the historic Cowtown Coliseum on the edge of their seat as they were second to run, earning a remarkable 7.08-second time.  Crawford earned nearly $63,000 in the week.

The roster will also showcase Kelsie Domer (Stephenville, Texas). In 2023, Domer’s grit and determination were evident before the Texas resident even stepped foot inside Cowtown Coliseum, giving birth to her daughter Oaklynn just a few months prior.

Domer advanced to the 2023 WRWC by earning one of the two coveted berths via the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ), Domer earned first-place in the LCQ by a slim one-one-hundredth of a second.

She continued to make waves throughout the event, continuing to turn heads as she advanced to the Championship Round. Backing into the box last, only needing to make a clean run fewer than 4.47 seconds, Domer delivered a groundbreaking performance, as the string broke away from her saddle horn at an impressive 2.16-second time. Domer was presented her event championship check with her daughter, walking away from the event with $61,000.

Last Chance Qualifier Context

In addition to the 172 qualified athletes from the W24 leaderboard and Qualifier Series Generic Qualifications, cowgirls from around the nation will compete at APHA’s Cowgirl Gathering May 9 – 12 in Fort Worth, Texas. Cowgirl Gathering will serve as WRWC’s Last Chance Qualifier.

Each WRWC event champion will earn a minimum $60,000, while the All-Around Champion will collect a $20,000 bonus. The WRWC is a culmination of a year-long race of women’s rodeo events worldwide.
