ABBI launches new two-year-old Futurity Series with more than $360K in prize money

100 current two-year-old bulls to compete in 2018 on a first come, first serve basis

Pueblo, CO (January 10, 2018) — ABBI (American Bucking Bull, Inc.) brings a new two-year-old Futurity Series to the 2018 season that includes $360,000 in prize money and over 80 checks to be distributed throughout the year.

“After speaking with the breeders, we have listened to their requests.” ABBI Executive Director Jay Daugherty said. “Everyone will now have an additional opportunity and outlet to win more money and showcase their up-and-coming calves.” 

There will be three mandatory regular season events with a $300 side pot entry fee requirement and a 100% payback for the bulls. The side pot events will determine which bulls will go in the main payout and the non-winner payout during the Finale.

In June, there will be a finale event held at the Bordertown Casino & Arena in Wyandotte, Oklahoma, with a $270,000 payout as long as all 100 competition spots are filled. All payouts will be based on how many total bulls have been entered. The Top 10 spots will be paid out in both the Money winner Finale Payout and the Non-Money Winner Finale Payout.
