WARWICK team roper Johnny Osborne has boosted his form for his hometown rodeo with a fourth in team roping last weekend at Collarenebri in north-west New South Wales.

Osborne is the most successful team roper in the history of the Australian Professional Rodeo Association and competed with former Warwick rider Jeff Miller at Collarenebri. Miller now lives at Tamworth.

The pair are likely to feature in team roping at the Warwick Rodeo.

While campdrafting at the Warwick Showgrounds starts on October 22, the rough and timed events at the Warwick Rodeo start on October 26.

Nominations for the rodeo events at the end of October in Warwick will be accepted at the APRA office in Warwick on Wednesday and Thursday (October 17-18).

Warwick and Mt Isa rodeos have the most prize money on the APRA circuit and attract the most nominations.

Two of the major attractions of the Warwick Rodeo are the history of an event which is dubbed "Australia's most famous" and the level of prize money.

Spots in the APRA National Finals Rodeo at the Gold Coast each June are earnt yy the top-15 in the standings.

Placing where the prize money is highest at Warwick or Mt Isa is a major boost to a competitors chance to make the finals.
