Riggin Phillips Finds the Winner's Circle in Stephenville

Fort Worth, TX (November 27, 2010)- The 2011 CBR Horizon Series was in Stephenville, TX, this past Saturday night, and Riggin Phillips outlasted the rest and picked up the victory.  The riding redhead rode both his bulls and finished with 172.5 points.  He rode White Tornado for 87 points in the long round, and that put him in the top five going into the Championship Round.  His 85.5-point ride on Buckethead in the short go was more than enough to put him in the winner's circle.  Phillips will move from 35th in the standings to somewhere inside the top 15.

The event in Stephenville was also a bull team competition, and Box K Cattle Co. came out on top with 284.75 points.  The team included Some Buck, Lounge Lizard, and the ever-popular Directory Assistance.  Lyndal Hurst's bull team came in second with 276.75 points, and his team included Boomerang, Air Patrick, and Mooseknuckle.  K-J Bucking Bulls had two teams, and they finished third and fifth, respectively.  The other team that finished in the top five was Danny Reagan's bull team, and they finished fourth.

The 2010 National Finals Rodeo begins later this week in Las Vegas, and several CBR riders will be in contention for the 2010 PRCA World Title.  Keep checking for updates, news, previews, key match-ups, etc.  Also, please visit the Championship Bull Riding Facebook or Twitter page if you haven't already.
