Three Albertans from Pool B are going to Championship Sunday in Saddle Bronc.

They're also going to be joined by Big Valley Alberta's Zeke Thurston who qualified in Pool A.

Only the top 3 in the three pools qualify for the finals at the Calgary Stampede this Sunday.

High River's own Lucas Macza and Dawson Dahm (Duffield, AB) tied for second in their final rides in Pool B and it moved both of them into the top 3 in the aggregate.

Kolby Wanchuk from Sherwood Park will also be right there with them on Sunday as he finished first in Pool B.

Pool C kicks off this afternoon at 1:30 p.m.

Here are some other Canadian highlights in the five other events.
