Bulls Keep Lead in Lambert’s Hands at Bulls For Breakfast

Camrose, AB: After some technical difficulties this afternoon, we’ve got the generator fired up to keep the laptop with enough power. The converter in my car wasn’t quite doing the job but the internet off of my phone sure is working well to bring this all to you today better late than never.

It was a bit of a rough go at times this afternoon too but it all worked out in the end. There were a couple good rides but the highlight of the day was the livestock.

 

Jody Turner made the ride of the day to tie himself with Miles Pennington for the Long Go lead with an 83.5 on the Vold Bull Star Duck. This is a bull that’s been not so rider friendly lately that was raised by Ty Prescott. He sure was a good one to have today and Jody agreed.

 

Steve Turner and Denton Edge both checked in today with 81 point scores. Beau Hill was 73 points and was offered a re-ride but declined it as he had to drive down to Calgary to catch a flight over to Abbotsford, BC to the the Mighty Fraser CPRA Rodeo that begins there tonight. Three bulls, two provinces and one day is enough for anyone in my opinion!

 

In the Junior Bull Riding here at Bulls for Breakfast we’ve been seeing all of the up and coming bulls from Duane Robinson and Nansen Vold. Today we saw one that’s a Son of the great 400 VJV Slash. Can you see the family resemblance?

 

We stopped the video at about five seconds and there’s a point there where he looks exactly like Slash does on Duane and Nansen’s trailer. We figure 923’s name could probably be “Another Slash” we will see what the Triangle X crew picks for a name in the next year or two.

 

Speaking of Slash, he’s a bull you’ll always see in the Short Go. Remington Country is now owned by Curtis Sawyer, he bought him last week from the Girletz’s in Oyen. You’ll be seeing him in many Short Go’s to come after this trip he had today in Camrose against Curtis Neufeld.

 

Jody Turner got himself a score in today’s Short Go to move into second place in the average. He was only 71, but if it holds up in the Top Six in the Average it’ll pay off big time.

 

True Blood came Derek Adams and was bought by Ty Prescott about a month ago. Today he was matched up with Beau Hill.

 

Another note from today that may interest many of the bull riders in Canada is the fact that the Big Black Muley by the name of Riff Raff has officially been retired. Curtis Sawyer told today that out of about 162 outs, Riff Raff had only been ridden about four or five times. Out of those 162 outs, there weren’t that many riders to attempt him. He wasn’t the easiest bull to ride but every time a rider did make eight on him, they were a good amount of points on him.

About five years ago, he even won the Sawyer’s a $5,000 bonus at the Edmonton PBR BFTS Event.

Curtis added “He was one you could always count on.”
