Las Vegas, Nevada – November 5, 2017
SweetPro’s Bruiser, the reigning PBR Champion Bull from 2016, has won the Bull of the Year award on the final day of the 2017 PBR Built Ford Tough Series World Finals in Las Vegas.
Owned by D&H Cattle Company of Ardmore, Oklahoma, SweetPro’s Bruiser had to come from behind to overtake PBR star Pearl Harbor in the finals. Pearl Harbor was .2 points ahead of SweetPro’s Bruiser on Wednesday, but on Thursday a 47 point performance by SweetPro’s Bruiser put him slightly ahead of Pearl Harbor, which had a solid 45+ point score.
As PBR.com reported “It was the second fastest buckoff of the season for Bruiser and his second highest bull score. ‘It was just that first jump and I was pretty happy,’ stock contractor H.D. Page said. ‘He is always the same. He just walked in there like he was going to go to sleep, but that is just his deal. He is cool as a cucumber.’ Resende was left shaking his head in amazement.”
“He bucked more today than any time,” Resende said. “Four or five times ago he would blow and jump up. Today, he leaved a little bit and pretty close (to the chutes). He bucks easier normally. I can ride him, but today he was real good.”
SweetPro’s Bruiser took Emilio Resende on a short 1.91 second ride, and displayed some remarkable bucking heights. Click here to see the PBR video of the ride.
As Page of D&H Cattle Company watched Sunday’s finals, he saw his top bull deliver another remarkable feat of athleticism, scoring a 46 to outdistance a strong showing by Pearl Harbor which delivered another 45+ point outing.
All of us at SweetPro congratulate D&H Cattle Company on their winning year and the accomplishments of two time PBR Bull of the Year Champion Bull, SweetPro’s Bruiser.
