World’s Richest One-Day Rodeo Pays More Than $2,000,000
For the third straight year, the world’s richest one-day rodeo will return to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN, presented by Polaris RANGER on Feb. 28, 2016, together with The American Semi-Finals, Feb. 17-21 in Fort Worth, will be televised live and offer a cash-and-prize purse of more than $2.5 million.
