Some of the youngest athletes have the biggest dreams. And RFD-TV's The American presented by DISH is a place where dreams can come true,  Earlier this week, we watched 10-year-old Barrel racer London Gorham earn a 13.740 during the first Semi-Finals Performance. 

Today, 16-year-old Carsyn Bailey will get her shot at qualifying for The American. Bailey, of Paradise, Texas placed 6th, with a 13.820 second time, in the Barrel Racing slack on Tuesday at Cow Town Coliseum. As the 2017 American Junior Rodeo Association Barrel Racing Champion, she earned her exemption to compete for a chance in the World’s Richest One Day Rodeo.

Rodeo is a family sport for the Bailey family and Carsyn has been competing since she was a little girl. With a 13.820 second time, she is one step closer to that Million Dollar Dream! Tune in to RFD-TV to watch Carsyn in the Semi Final Performance. Her dream of competing against World Champion Barrel Racers on Saturday at The American Rodeo in Arlington’s AT&T stadium is just one rodeo away from reality. Don’t miss all the rodeo action, tune into RFD-TV on Dish Network.
