GUYMON, Okla. – Saddle bronc rider Clay Elliott, a three-time qualifier for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (2016-18) was severely injured during a ride May 3 at the Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo.

Elliott was bucked off Frontier Rodeo’s Delta Force and that’s when his trouble began. The Nanton, Alberta, cowboy landed on his head and fractured his neck.

Elliott had surgery May 4 at the Swedish Medical Center in Denver said Rick Foster, program director for the Justin Sportsmedicine Team.

“He had a cervical spine fracture that was stabilized with surgery,” Foster said. “The surgery went well, and the prognosis is good for a full recovery. Hopefully, he will be released from the hospital on Tuesday (May 7).”

Elliott will be out of action indefinitely. Elliott placed a career-best 10th in the 2018 PRCA | RAM World Standings with $148,868. He placed in three rounds at the 2018 Wrangler NFR and earned $44,692 in Las Vegas.

Elliott was 26th in the May 6 world standings with $17,418.
