Some of the toughest 3 year old bulls in the country competed at this year’s Greenville Chrysler Black Gold Challenge UBBI Derby presented by the TwoBulls on August 10th & 11th.  Bulls from as far away as Indiana and North & South Carolina competed for their share of $100,000 in prize money!  On Friday night the first 50 bulls showed their stuff and at the completion of the first performance it was Rafter HB Cattle’s Gigilo Beau and D&H and Buck Cattle’s Stone Sober tied for 1st place with scores of 89.25 points.  Other bulls finishing in the top 5 on Friday were Lights Out from Frontier/Ray/Folds/Strickland landing third with 88.75 points and Trampas and Downtown Brown, both from Folds/Strickland/K-C Bulls/Sparklin Acres with scores of 88 points, tying for 4th and 5th place.

On Saturday, the remaining 50 bulls lined up for competition and it was Kephart Bucking Bulls #903 and Living the Dream from Luther Halpain (Dale Glory Bucking Bulls) both with the highest scores on Saturday night.  Each posted 88 points and moved into a split for 4th through 7th place.  Twenty five places were paid and there was a tie for 21st thru 26th place, so 26 bulls earned a check.

Gigilo Beau and Stone Sober held onto the top two spots and split the win and earned $18,500 each and a Tres Rios Silver Championship buckle.

Jim McLain, Donny Gowin and Jay Weddle along with the TwoBulls Group produced a tremendous event with great hospitality and complimentary dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.  Hats off to entire crew including Todd & Christie Greenway with Omega Productions for putting on a great show!
