The Last Call – Asquith, SK

Asquith, SK: Aaron Roy came within a single point of winning his own event on Thursday night. It didn’t work out in his favor. It would almost seem like cheating to win your own event though wouldn’t it?

Either way, Aaron made a great ride on the Braithwaite Bull Jackson James a bull that has really been having a great year.

I’ve still got to go with the ride of the night being Stetson Lawrence on the Berezay bull Bucking Fantastic though for the win of it all at 91 points.


Ride of the Night

Stetson Lawrence vs. Two Bit Bucking Bull’s Bucking Fantastic

After that ride, I got the chance to talk with Steton about it along with his win.

The bull was the other half of the equation. Josh Berezay, Bucking Fantastic’s owner, of Two Bit Bucking Bulls from McGrath, AB told me a bit more about his great bull after the event was over for the evening.


Bull of the Night

This one was a tough choice since there were a ton of great bulls at the event. According to Merle Freeman’s score cards, about half of the short round bulls were all marked a 22.5 out of 25.

Of course I could have went with Bucking Fantastic, but that wouldn’t be very interesting since he was half of the ride of the night. I had to go with Slash here. In my opinion, he looked like the bull that if rode, Dusty would have won the short round on. Not to take away anything from any of the other bulls, but I think it would have been a big one.
