ABBI & TwoBulls ANNOUNCE WILDCARD AND YEARLING FUTURITIES:
WINNERS TO ADVANCE TO VEGAS
PUEBLO, Colo. (August 2, 2016)- American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) and TwoBulls are proud to announce the upcoming Yearling Feature Futurity events to be held Sept. 16-17 at Stephens County Expo Center in Duncan, Okla.
“We’ve heard from our members that they want more Yearling events, so we are excited to be able to have this event for them,” said ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty. “This also gives folks an opportunity to buck their yearlings prior to Las Vegas as well as to acquire yearlings they may want to compete with at Finals.”
On Sept. 17 there will be an Open Yearling, Yearling Wildcard and Futurity Wildcard event held. All three competition events will have $100 of the entry fee going to the bonus purse which will pay back 100%, and, once again, will include a Big Tex Trailer to one lucky participant. The Open event will be a $600 entry fee with $100 going toward the bonus purse.
Yearling Wildcard fees will be $1,100 ($100 toward bonus purse). One bull will advance to the Yearling Lifetime Futurity in Las Vegas, with the $5,000 entry fee paid.
An optional high stakes side pot for the Wildcards will cost $1,500, which will have a 95% payback and no bonus purse fees deducted.
“We want the best bulls at the World Finals in each category,” explained Daugherty. “The events in Duncan will allow the best yearling and the top futurity bulls the opportunity to advance to Las Vegas. At this year’s Futurity Finals we are taking the Top 50, the Top 3 from our ABBI Canada events and those top animals from Duncan.”
Seven 2-year-old bulls will get the opportunity to qualify for the ABBI World Finals Futurity out of the Duncan Wildcard Futurity, with their $2,000 Vegas entry fees paid. Futurity Wildcard fees are $1,100 ($100 toward bonus purse).
For the World Finals Futurity, fees will be $2,000 and ABBI will pay 15 holes. First place at Finals will bring $25,000, with the last hole paying $2,000.
