Grimes to compete at National
Wrangler National Finals Rodeo has been a dream for Kathy Grimes for 20 years and Dec. 7-16, she will realize that dream. She has gotten the embryos right.
Kathy, who is a veterinarian in Medical Lake, Wash., has worked long hours to reach this goal. Contestants are chosen based on the amount of money won in each event at approved rodeos during the year with the qualifications ending Sept. 30. She is ranked 6th in the world in barrel racing and the top 15th in each event are invited to take part. This year Kathy has traveled 40,000 miles through 25 states and Canada, competing in 40 PRCS rodeos. The two horses she competes on are the product of her embryo transfer breeding program.
The National Finals Rodeo will be held in Las Vegas, Nev., and shown on RFD TV station or the internet at www.wranglernetwork.com. Kathy will be competing in her favorite and lucky color, purple.
Kathy is the daughter of John Grimes, Kettle Falls, Wash., and the late Patty Dale (Henningsen) Nolan; granddaughter of the late Katherine Grimes; niece of Marilyn Eaton and Margaret Colson, both of Mankato, and Bob Grimes, Cheney, Wash.
