Eatonia, SK: The Tenth Annual Eatonia Harvest Crunch takes place this Thursday Night at the Eatonia Memorial Arena. As the first stop of the August PBR Canada BFTS Incentive, it’s sure to be exciting. $7,500 in added money is up for grabs with a trophy buckle being presented to the night’s champion bull rider.
This is my shot at the In the Bull Pen story for Eatonia. Be sure to add a comment with your picks after seeing the draw below.
Ty Patten vs. BCR LR14 Shot Glass - Blade Young rode this bull in Oyen a couple weeks ago for an 82.5. The Black Horned Big Country Bull turned back to the left after a couple jumps out there he weakened at the end a bit but held up for a decent score. Ty didn’t do very well last weekend and will be looking to do well. What he will really be looking to do is win the most money at all three of these events to get himself to San Antonio since he missed out on the July incentive by a couple thousand dollars.

Jesse Torkelson vs. HOGS856 Black Chicago - This black and white bull has been solid as a four year old for the Wild Hoggs this year. We haven’t seen him a bunch but he’s a good one. He should turn back to the right after a jump out of the box. Jesse will handle this bull good with his brazilian rope and win himself some money. I’m betting he’s about 84 points just like Besplug was in Marwayne in this video below.

Tanner Girletz vs. HOGS77 Northern Chill - I’ve seen this bull a few times now and I’m not sure what to think of him. He looks like a whip down specialist at times but then Tanner Byrne rode him the other week and was only 79 on him. He did hit his head on the chute though so that’s probably what messed him up. Northern Chill came from Dala Bala and Ty Elliot was 86 or so on him to win the Long Go over in Edgerton on him at the start of July. Tanner will ride him and probably win the long go. It all depends on the trip though so we will see.

Denton Edge vs. EKBB822 TJ - Darin Eno raised this bull and I’ve only seen him go a couple times. He was real wild in Arrowwood with Te Hiko Neil of New Zealand. Te Hiko almost rode him there and he would have probably got a good score since TJ was real tough to ride. Denton is coming off of a good weekend and good ride in Strathmore on Monday too so I bet he rides this one no matter what he does.
