BUCKING BULL GAMES CONCLUDE WITH THE HIGEST PAYOUT IN EVENT HISTORY (November 10, 2016 01:39:29 PM)

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – NOVEMBER 5, 2016 – The most lucrative payout in the six year history of the Million Dollar Bucking Bull Championship saw Ringo Kid declared the champion with his payout checks amounting to $600,000.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – NOVEMBER 5, 2016 – The most lucrative payout in the six year history of the Million Dollar Bucking Bull Championship saw Ringo Kid declared the champion with his payout checks amounting to $600,000. No one can deny that Ringo Kid earned his money the hard way.

Owned by Halpain, Long, Thompson & Martinelli, Ringo Kid squeezed by at the Border Town Casino Preliminary in Seneca, Mo, on October 4th. Of the 20 spots open to advance to the Las Vegas Finals, Ringo Kid scored 85.50 to finish 17th.

In Las Vegas, as so often happens in the bucking bull world, it’s all about peaking, and Ringo Kid showed what he was made of at exactly the right time.

Ringo Kid, a son of Last Call, started his championship week run of the table during the Monday, October 31st Round of 27 by collecting a top score of 88 to advance.

On Wednesday, he jacked it up a major notch winning the All in Preliminary Round with an impressive buck worth 90 points. His two extraordinary outs during the Finals though were wiped clean as all the MDBBC entries to buck on November 5th started with no points accumulated from past events.

Competing against the 10 top Bucking Bull Games Bulls in addition to the top 7 All in Players Championship bulls, Ringo Kid once again shone as he won the Championship and weeklong Tri-fecta by winning the buckle and having his name engraved on the Championship bell with a solid 88.67.

Ringo Kid’s MDBBC win was worth $500,000 with an addition $100,000 added to the pot by also winning the All In bounty.

Jerry Halpain, one of the first major trainers and breeders to see the benefit of getting involved in the Bucking Bull Games program was elated after the win. Halpain said, " There is no event like this one, nothing even close, and no feeling like this either, nothing even close” shortly after winning the $600,000

In the Championship Final, the Whisnat and Mogg bull Go Blue scored 86.17 to finish second and leave Las Vegas $100,000 richer. The Jeri Harmon owned Mr. Allen finished the MDBBC All In Class second with a 86.33 worth $29,000.

 

Other Champions crowned at Bucking Bull Games included -

Foreplay owned by Bob Whisnant was the champion bull in the Bull & Rider tournament winning $30,000

Sean Willingham takes down his second Bull & Rider Tournament victory with a pay window visit worth $15,000

Calico Kickin owned by David Hale was the Second Chance champion winning $15,000

Over 1.3 million was paid out during the week.

The All In Players Championship draft continues to thrive as close to $800,000 was bid as owners selected their picks eligible to compete in the 2017 BBG and MDBBC.

Billy Jaynes, CEO of Exclusive Genetics and the Bucking Bulls games has seen his vision for lucrative winners payouts continue to grow. Jaynes said about the draft, "This is closer to what my vision is. Ever since I attended the Saratoga Springs horse racing sale and watched horses bring $300,000 on average, I have been committed to bringing our industry more in line with this. We did not average $300,000 but we averaged well over $20,000 per bull, and I think that will open the eyes of breeders and cause them to consign there better bulls in years to come which should drive the prices up!!”

Maybe, just maybe, the luckiest number is Las Vegas is a 9. Ringo Kid was the 9th draft pick in the All In draft last year which is the same as former 2014 MDBBC Ms Kitty’s Peacemaker was when he was drafted in 2013

 Number 9 this year?  It was Tippin Point drafted by Rock River Bucking Bulls with a draft bid of $37,500.
