Chi’e Che’e Fly Sprouts Wings at the Cowboy Capital UBBI Event in Stephenville

#960 Chi Chi's Fly owned by Kirk Johnson and Jeff Hubbard

The UBBI held it’s 29th event of the 2011 season this past weekend and it’s 2nd event of the year inside the 4c’s Arena & Event Center!  The Cowboy Capital UBBI Event attracted 71 Futurity, 58 Derby and 34 Classic Bulls and paid out $46,500 in prize money.  When the dust settled and everybody caught there breath in the 100+ degree heat, Chi’e Che’e Fly (Chee Chee Fly) flew away with the Futurity win and posted the highest marked futurity score this season with a whopping 90.25 points!  The bull is owned by Kirk Johnson and Jeff Hubbard and has competed at three other UBBI events.  Winnie in March, the Spring Spectacular in April and the Summer Spectacular in August.  Chi’e Che’e Fly won $607 in March at Winnie, but since then has had bad luck at the other two events until now.

“He tries so hard sometimes he stumbles or he turns back so quick he hits his head on the gate post,” shared Kirk Johnson.  “Dean Wilson has done a tremendous job with him and he’s been patient and it’s paid off!”

Although Kirk and Jeff own the bull, they’ve trusted Dean Wilson to take care of, haul and flank their pride and joy since January of this year.  With a total of $3,760 in UBBI cash, Chi’e Che’e Fly is now among the top 20 bulls in the UBBI standings and will likely qualify for the UBBI National Finals in October.

Other top futurity bulls at the Cowboy Capital UBBI Event included City Lights aka Red Man of Carl Wilburn’s in 2nd, Greg Talbert’s Mud Packer in 3rd, and I’ll Make You Rich of Kash Cattle/Porter Bulls and Cut Leg of Kevin Pool’s splitting 3rd and 4th place.

In the Derby, Joy Hawks brought the Bad Apple from Walker Bucking Stock Breeders and won 1st place with a score of 90 points to win $3,471.  Geronimo from Lufkin Ranch & Rodeo continued his winning ways with a score of 90.5 points to pick of a check for $2,570.
