107 Jailhouse Socks

Sire: Jailhouse Rock

Smith, Harper, Morgan


107 Jailhouse Socks makes his National Finals Rodeo debut next month in Las Vegas. Boasting a sixty-eight percent buck off rate, 107 has been ridden 9 times from twenty-five attempts and made appearances on all three of the professional bull riding tours including the CBR, PBR, and PRCA before landing a coveted spot on the 2016 National Finals Rodeo stock list.

Although the stat sheets will say this five year old bull will be classified as a rookie on the dirt inside the Thomas and Mack Arena, his resume and the five bull riders behind the chutes that have been on him will argue he is anything but a first timer.

107 began his illustrious rough stock career as a two year old super star. Proving the bred to buck programs are alive and well, 107 was a member of the CBRs 2013 World Champion Futurity Tour team. He was one of three two year olds owned by Carpenter and Hudgins that finished first in the CBRs inaugural World Championship Futurity held in Scottsdale, Arizona.

All grown up and ready to rock, 107 entered the big bull world in January of 2015 and in December he will unload off the Smith, Harper, Morgan Rodeo Company truck in Las Vegas.

His story though short and solid, features a bull that most of the riders claim always has the same trip. Taryl Smith was the first to catch a qualified ride on that trip with 89 points at the Jackson, Tennessee CBR in 2015.

The pretty black and white bull would go on to buck off World Champion Cody Teel and two time NFR qualifier Brennon Eldred on the CBRs 2015 Road to Cheyenne before Wyatt Rogers rode him on his rookie appearance at the CBRs World Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days. That 89 point ride by Rogers was the assist Mike Rawson needed and he would go on to win the CBRs 2015 World Champion Bull Team title and awards with 107 at his side.

Two months later, Cody Rostockyj would be the third rider to cover him for 88 points in the CBRs Window Rock event.

Jailhouse Socks career rankest bull score came from an encounter with Cody Teel last July at the Ogden, Utah pro rodeo where Teel made the whistle but was called for a slap. 107 was marked 46 points, one of three round winning outs in 107s career. 

Five of the 9 qualified rides on 107 have produced round wins for the rider so if you draw him in Vegas the odds are at 60 percent you will win the round if you score a qualified ride.

According to Probullstats.com, of the five NFR qualifiers that have drawn Jailhouse Socks (Eldred, Teel, Kimzey, Bingham, Rostockyj) only two riders, Rostockyj and Kimzey, have heard the whistle while still on his back. Kimzey, the reigning CBR and PRCA World Champion bull rider has ridden him twice, the last time was in July in Ogden for 90.5 points at a pro rodeo and last March at a CBR event in Salina, Kansas, the pair went 90 points.

According to the riders what makes this bull so great and NFR worthy is the fact that he has the same trip every time and hes a solid bucking bull.
