McCoy Ranches has been breeding and raising quality bucking bulls for over 30 years! It’s patriarch, Denny McCoy continues to be involved and still enjoys traveling and participating. That was evident in his latest 2 year old superstar, bull #Tc302 Opus. Opus is sired by a son of C1 Pancho and out of a Bells Blue dam and came on the scene early in 2015. At his first outing in Palestine in January, Opus failed to win a check. In fact, Opus finished 59th out of 64 bulls. But in his second appearance at Mineral Wells in February, it was a complete different story, posting a score of 90 points to win first place. From that day, the chase was on!
A total of 107 futurity bulls competed in Mulvane, Kansas, with 50 of those featured in the UBBI National Finals Futurity competition and a total of 90 bulls also competed in the United Futurity League (UFL) Finals event. Thirty-three of the 50 nationally ranked Futurity bulls were joined by an additional 47 futurity bulls to make up the 30 teams of 3 bulls (90 total) as a part of the UFL competition. Futurity bulls were all bucked once and there individual score counted in the National Futurity Finals and UFL score columns.
At the conclusion of one round of the UBBI National Finals Futurity, the Top 25
bulls were determined and each earned a check for their talent. Bull #60-3 Inferno owned by D&H Cattle Co/Sonny Barthold posted the highest score of 90.5 points to earn the UBBI National Finals Championship and added $10,000 to it’s win column. Ultimately, Inferno finished #7 overall for the year with a total of $12,026.50 in qualified earnings. In addition to the $10,000 for first place, Inferno also earned a $5,000 UBBI Finals Champion Bonus. Along the way, Inferno
earned $4,766 in Gold Standard Futurity winnings for a grand total of $21,793 in UBBI earnings! Finishing second at this year’s Finals was bull #313 Zoro de Toro with a score of 89.25 points, earning $7,500. Zoro de Toro finished 4th for the year-end and pocketed a total of $19,076 in UBBI earnings including Super Series Bonus money and Gold Standard Futurity dollars!
Bull #Tc302 Opus owned by McCoy Ranches, was the front runner for the title of
the UBBI Futurity World Champion for most of the 2015 season. Bull #153 Buzz Kill owned by 2H & K3J Bucking Bulls made a strong late season push to win the title. Although Opus did not win any money at this year’s UBBI National Finals, the McCoy Ranch raised 2 year old was able to hold off all comers to win the 2015 UBBI Futurity World Championship.
