The United Bucking Bulls, Inc has always been on the cutting edge of new ideas to enhance the bucking bull industry! The Gold Standard Futurity & Black Gold Derby were the first events to offer ownership in positions to compete for bigger purses! The Wayne Hodges 4 Star Trailers Futurity Super Series offers additional bonus money and the use of a new aluminum trailer! In keeping with those cutting edge ideas, the UBBI has announced it’s new Silver Select Futurity payout.
“We’re excited about this new Silver Select payout,” stated Randy Schmutz, the general manager of the UBBI. “It adds to the number of paid positions at every UBBI Futurity event (except the Gold Standard & UFL futurities) and gives a larger number of participants a chance to win money!”
Entry fees at regular season UBBI futurity events will increase from $450 to $500 for the remainder of the 2016 season. The $50 will create the Silver Select payout and be paid back 100%!
For example, at a futurity with 60 bulls entered, we will continue to pay 1 place for every 5 bulls entered, thus the top 12 placing bulls would earn a check toward qualifying for the UBBI National Finals. The forty-eight remaining bulls would be eligible for the Silver Select payout (60 bulls x $50 = $3,000 paid 100%). Dividing those 48 bulls, 1 place for every 5 bulls, the Silver Select would then pay the next 9 bulls. Silver Select winnings will NOT count as qualifier dollars toward UBBI National Finals or UBBI Futurity World Title.
“This is another way for members to enter and win with bulls that are just out of those regular paid positions,” explained Schmutz. “I’m confident this adds value to our futurity system and keeps it simple for everyone to understand and also provides a return to more of our members!”
The Silver Select payout will begin at the Boston Porter Memorial Bull Riding UBBI event in Palestine, Texas on March 18-19.
