ABBI RETURNING TO DUNCAN FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS FOR AWARD-WINNING AMERICAN HERITAGE EVENT
PUEBLO, Colo. (October 12, 2015)-American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) is proud to announce that they will be returning to Duncan, Okla. for the next three years with their premier Futurity event, The American Heritage. Jim McLain, who produced the landmark event, was recognized at the ABBI World Finals in Las Vegas as the 2015 Producer of the Year for his work.
“We're thrilled to be continuing our relationship with Jim and the city of Duncan,” said ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty. “We couldn't ask for a better partner, or facility, to help grow what is already our biggest Futurity event each season.”
The American Heritage is the organization’s largest Futurity event, with hundreds of bucking bulls and their owners coming from coast-to-coast to compete against each other for a huge prize purse, paying out over $570,000 in prize money with a $100,000 check to the winner.
“I am deeply honored to receive this award on behalf of not only myself, but my entire team who made the American Heritage a huge success,” said McLain. “Without the support of the Duncan Convention Visitors Bureau, our County Commissioners and the City of Duncan we couldn’t have done it. We are excited to be producing the American Heritage thru 2018 in Duncan and look forward to a prosperous future with the American Bucking Bull, Inc. organization."
