KBHB Bucking Horse Sale features futurity prospects

News Staff - January 15, 2019

RAPID CITY, SD – There was a time when bucking stock sales saw other rodeo contractors on the seats and that was about it.

Not any more.  Sutton Rodeo’s are among the frontrunners of the burgeoning bucking horse futurity phenomenon.  Horses bring hundreds of thousands of dollars at futurities for breeders and contractors in search of the best lineage they can find.

And it’s at an event like the 33rd Annual KBHB Bucking Horse Sale where futurity enthusiasts come to shop for that next great prospect.

The sale is set for Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019 at 1:00pm in the Barnett Arena at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.  It features 30 head of Sutton Rodeo ranch raised bucking horses including the coming five-year old colt crop raised by Sutton Rodeos.   The mares of these colts have produced top quality bucking stock. 

Steve Sutton points to the lucrative bucking horse futurity market, noting,  “These colts are the right age.  The futurities in Faith, SD and Las Vegas, NV both had colts in the top final five that were purchased at this sale.” 

Bucking Stock will be at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Tuesday afternoon, for viewing prior to the sale.  According to Steve Sutton, this is one of the premier sales in the nation and has continued to get better every year.  “This offering looks to be one of the best ones yet,” he noted.

Bareback and Saddle Bronc contestants enter January 30th at 11:00 a.m. at the Barnett Arena.  There will be added prize money in the two rough stock events.  Animals will be bucked on the day of the sale.  “This is a great opportunity to view new and upcoming bucking stock and riders,” says Sutton.

For sale information regarding load out, phone bids, temporary boarding of animals, contact Steve Sutton at (605) 381-0270 or Sutton Rodeo Office (605)258-2863.  See a complete sale listing and sale schedule at www.suttonrodeo.com.
