So far, Watson has only stayed on to score for one other round — round three. He scored 87 points riding Delta Force, to earn him a tie for fifth place and $5,500. 

There are still five more rounds to go, plenty of time for Watson to win another round, and improve his standing in the average. 

Round six goes tonight starting at 7 p.m., with another round scheduled each night until December 14.
