Fans Get Charged Up to Root for the Sam?s Town Superstars and Purina Million Dollar Bulls in the Million Dollar Bucking Bull & Bull Rider Tournament


November 22, 2013 (Orchard, Texas) - Exclusive Genetics (EG), a leader in the bucking bull industry, will feature its finest bucking bulls and showcase world champion riders for an exhilarating week at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR) in Las Vegas, NV December 5 – 14.   For the first time ever, EG will premier its Bucking Bull Games World Finals at WNFR, which consists of six bucking bull events with a payout of $1.3 Million.   The Bucking Bull Games is sponsored by Purina Animal Nutrition LLC, Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall and Pom & Associates.

Exclusive Genetics CEO Billy Jaynes who has a flair for turning bucking bull fans into bucking bull owners is looking forward to see his vision of the Bucking Bull Games come to fruition at this year’s WNFR, “EG prides itself on tailoring events based on our customers’ needs, this includes the owners and the fans…hence the launch of the Bucking Bull Games.”  Bull enthusiasts will have the opportunity to see champions crowned as yearlings, as well as two year-olds; both of these divisions competing with a remote control dummy on their back.  Cowboys will also challenge three-, four- and five-year-old bulls in a first time, head to head tournament presented by EG.

The flagship of EG’s week-long events is the Million Dollar Bucking Bull Championship.  Held at the Cowboy Marketplace at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, December 11-14, this fast-paced competition will offer, for the third year, the largest purse for any bucking bull event in the history of the sport.  Twenty-five, two-year-old bulls compete for $1,000,000, with $500,000 – the largest payout in the world - going to the owner of the winning bull.

Adding to its repertoire of spectacular events, EG will not only offer fans the opportunity to see their favorite bulls crowned as champions, but they will now also have the chance to root for top class bull riders in the inaugural Million Dollar Bucking Bull and Bull Rider Tournament at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Jaynes said the competition will be fierce, as it pits some of the top bulls, otherwise known as the Purina® Million Dollar Bulls, against several of the top ranked cowboys in the world, a.k.a. the Sam’s Town Superstars.  He added that this event will give the fans a supercharged challenge to watch, “Not only do we have some of the best caliber Million Dollar Bulls selected to compete in the bull and rider tournament, but the roster of bull riders is unmatchable and consist of CBR World Champions, PBR Finalists and top PRCA cowboys.” 

A stellar group of Sam’s Town Superstars cowboys are ready to mount some of the highest earning bulls of all time. Among the stars scheduled to appear are, 2013 PBR World Finalists Jory Markiss, Matt Triplett and Marcus Mariluch, former CBR World Champions Bonner Bolton and Josh Barentine, past CBR Reserve Champions Pistol Robinson and Luis Blanco and top PRCA cowboy Scottie Knapp who won two Xtreme bull events in 2013.

The Purina® Million Dollar Bulls entering the battle include, Under Par winning $100,000 for 2nd place in the 2012 MDBBC, Dagger taking in $100,000 for 2nd place in the 2011 MDBBC and Stuntin Like My Daddy a $62,500 winner in the 2012 MDBBC and 3rd in the 2013 ABBI Classic Championship. Diamond Back, Captain, FLAB SLAB and Pop The Latch have also entered the event.

The format of the event will be highly interactive; when the cowboys arrive at the arena, they will not know who they have drawn. Right before the round starts the riders will be introduced to the crowd in the arena and then, through a live bid auction, find out who they will ride, determined by each high bidder selecting which cowboy they want on which bull.

Fans can attend the Bull and Rider events free at the Las Vegas Convention Center on December 5-7 and 9-13.  The title of World Champion will be named on December 13, with total payouts exceeding $40,000.

Bucking Bull Games will be open free to the public and take place daily at either the Cowboy Marketplace at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino or the Las Vegas Convention Center.  For performance schedules and venues or for more information about Exclusive Genetics’ Bucking Bull Games visit www.exclusivegenetics.com/bucking_bull_games.
