Professional rodeo headed to Atlantic City

    What to do when times are tough? 

    Host a rodeo, of course!

    Nothing like bareback horse riding, tie-down roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling and bull riding to bring in the greenbacks.

    The Press of Atlantic City reports every casino is sponsoring the April 1-3 rodeo, and the prize purse will be $56,000, with 10 to 12 contestants in each event.
