What’s That Bull for Day One of the Ranchman’s Renegades PBR

CALGARY, Alberta — Below is the draw for day one of the Ranchman’s Renegades PBR Bull Bustin’ on July 1st, 2014 at 7:00pm each day.

$25,000 in added prize money is up for grabs over these two days. Thursday’s Bull Bustin’ in support of the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Center is a separate event with $10,000 up in one day. Tickets are still available by clicking the poster on the right hand side of our site.

These are my thoughts on a few of the key match-ups for night one. It was tough as there is such a high level of talent including the number three man in the entire PBR currently, Joao Ricardo Vieira of Brazil; number six in Montana’s Matt Tripplett; Sean Willingham who’s number 15; along with all three Canadians inside the top 26 and the unbeaten on Canadian soil, Chase Outlaw.

Weigh in with your thoughts if you’d like in a comment below. We hope to see you out all week at Ranchman’s for Bull Bustin!

A short note to any bull riders on the alternate list too, there are going to be a few guys that won’t make tonight’s event due to the short round in Ponoka. Show up, you might end up on a bull for a shot at a whole pile of cash.


Josh Birks vs. X Factor – Great bull + great bull rider = one ride you’re gonna wanna watch. X Factor from the Outlawbuckers is a bull I’ve seen a few times. He looks pretty welly. When a rider stays on him though they have usually got some good scores. Birks is inside the PBR Canada’s top ten currently. With a win or placing here things are close enough, the closest I’ve ever seen it, for him to move right up to the top and that’s right where he wants to be.


Jesse Torkelson vs. Pitch Dark – Last year this was the bull that Tyler Pankewitz took to a score of 87.5 en route to the win. Coming five, Pitch Dark spun to the left with Pank and looked like he wasn’t that easy to ride. I think it’s advantage cowboy with this one being into his hand.


Chase Outlaw vs. Highwood Hottie – In four events here in Canada so far Chase Outlaw has won them all. Will he do it again this week between Ranchman’s and the Calgary Stampede? I think he’s got a shot. I do not recall seeing this bull before but I’m betting he’s going to get rode on Tuesday Night.


Joao Ricardo Vieira vs. Smoothie – Like I said earlier, Joao is third in the PBR’s World Standings currently. I read a story the other day on PBR.com that he was winning in Brazil so he might be a little jet-lagged getting here in time for Tuesday Night in the Ranchman’s parking lot. Luckily he’s got a bull from the Franklin Rodeo Company that’s solid. I’m going with an 84 to 86 here.

Chad Besplug was 85 on Smoothie this spring at the Daryl Mills Invitational in Fort St. John, BC.


Billy West vs. Finkle’s Dog – Last year’s event winner took the cake on this Girletz Bull. 91.5 points was the result and Billy would sure make his mark if he did that tonight. Billy rides great, Finkle’s Dog isn’t easy to ride but I think if anyone can do it, Bill can. This one will likely be in the 90’s if it all goes as planned.
