It has already been a successful week for Wright, who has won two of the past three Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world championships.
At the Snake River Stampede in Nampa, Idaho, he earned $8,300 by tying for first place in the opening round, tying for second in the final round and finishing second in the average.
Wright will likely cash a big check in Ogden, too.
With one performance left in the Pioneer Days Rodeo, he leads the saddle bronc standings after scoring an arena-record 91 points Friday night.
Meanwhile, there is a three-way tie in the Days of '47 Rodeo bull riding standings.
Travis Atkinson, of Lehi, is one of the leaders after scoring an early-round 86. He shares the top spot with Chance Smart, of Philadelphia, Miss.; and Jake Wade, of Alamo, Nev.
The barrel racing is also tied.
Carlee Pierce, of Woodward, Okla.; and Jessi Eagleberger, of Stringtown, Okla., posted identical times of 13.98 seconds.
At Nampa, where the Snake River Stampede ended Saturday night, Pierce earned more than $10,000 by finishing second in the first round, second in the final round and second in average.
