Aggie barrel racer pockets $433K in The American victory

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- THE AMERICAN presented by Polaris RANGER is the world's richest one-day rodeo event and Texas A&M senior barrel racer Hailey Kinsel pocketed over $433K dollars with her first place finish.

Riding her six year old mare Sister, the duo had a perfect run and stopped the clock in 14.689.

After two of the first 3 racers had knocked over barrels, all Kinsel had to do was top Sherry Cervi time of 14.950 to set a world record for the biggest payout for a single barrel race victory.

Hailey will be practicing for the next several weeks before participating in her final Texas A&M College Rodeo March 17 and 18 at the Brazos Expo Complex.
