ABBI TEAM & REGULAR FUTURITIES TO BE A PART OF THE 2017 SPRING FLING IN STEPHENVILLE
American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) has added a Team Futurity event to the 2017 Spring Fling event in Stephenville, Texas. The events will take place April 14-15 at Lone Star Arena and each team will consist of three bulls.
There will be an estimated payout of $128,000 to futurity bulls- $100,000 in the team event and $28,000 for the regular futurity.
“One of our goals for 2017 is to continue to increase the number and types of event available to our members,” said Jay Daugherty, ABBI Executive Director. “A team event allows our members to either get three of their best 2-year-olds together to enter, or to band together with friends and join forces, in hopes of being able to assemble the winning team.”
For the Team Futurity event there will be a $5,000 entry fee with an estimated payout of 6 holes with 25 teams entered. Based on this model, first will pay $33,000 and the last paying sixth hole will be $8,000.
Animals can be double entered in both the team and the regular futurity; all bulls will be bucked once and their score applied to the event(s) they are entered in. Spots can be purchased immediately. If contractors aren’t sure which animals they want to enter, they may buy a spot now and let the ABBI office know the name of the animals competing by April 5.
For the regular futurity there will be an $800 entry fee (which includes pen and shavings). With 50 animals entered, the estimated payout for first will be $8,000.
Call the ABBI office at 719-242-2747 to enter or for more information. Spring Fling is an annual event traditionally held the two days before Easter which draws stock contractors and their families from coast-to-coast to compete in a variety of bucking bull events.
