More About the Rhinestone Renegades Women’s Futurity Series:

Other than event staff, only women members are allowed behind chutes or in rigging areas during the futurity performance.  Women were assisted by Rhinestone Renegade staff and/or other women participants.

The payout was a 3D payout.  From the highest placing bull score, the 2D will be 3 points less than 1st place.  The 3D will be 6 points less than first place.  Total prize money in the 1D was 50% of the net purse; in the 2D was 30% of the net purse; in the 1D was 20% of the net purse.  Example: 1st place in 1D – 88.25 points; 1st place in 2D – 85.25 points; 1st place in the 3D – 82.25 points.  Pay-Out was 1 place paid for every 3 bulls entered, up to 20 places unless otherwise posted in Event Details. Total number of places paid was determined and then divided by 3D’s (1D, 2D, 3D).  When uneven number of places are determined, an additional place was paid in the 1D.  Example: 40 bulls entered divided by 3 = 13 places paid.  13 places divided by 3D’s = 5 places in 1D; 4 places in the 2D; 4 places in the 1D.

The Rhinestone Renegades Women’s UBBI Futurity Series competition is for 2 year old bulls (2012 Born) and all 2 year old bulls are eligible to participate in the women’s futurity events, regardless of ownership and/or participation in other futurity events.  Futurity Bulls are bucked with a dummy for 5 seconds and bulls do not have to be ABBI registered to compete.
