San Antonio, Texas – Professional team ropers David Key and Jade Corkill are the new Grand Champions of the 29th Annual George Strait Team Roping Classic. The finals for Roping Classic were held Saturday at the Rose Palace in San Antonio, Texas. Key, 42, and Corkill, 23, were one of fifty teams that returned to compete in the finals from nearly 500 teams who competed last Friday in the preliminaries.

Key’s Stephenville, TX, rodeo arena is composed of 100% Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment products, including new roping chute, leadups, arena panels, stripping chute, bow gates, rodeo sweep, leadup corners, and holding pens.

“I depend on my Tarter roping products when I’m practicing for competitions,” said Key, who is sponsored by Tarter. “Whether you’re a recreational roper or a competitor, you’ll find that this equipment will be an easy and ideal choice for all your roping needs.”

Dale Sorge, rodeo product manager for Tarter, said “Tarter is proud to sponsor a champion roper like David Key and is confident his adoption of Tarter’s rodeo equipment has played a role in his success.”

Tarter’s new line of roping and arena equipment has revolutionized the rodeo equipment market. From the heaviest manual chutes for competitions to the electric chutes that operate anywhere without electric or air, to the new roping sweep system, the more than 26 products released in 2010 contain innovative features that give new versatility and independence to today’s modern ropers.
