PRCA Bull Riding Standings Update, Sept 27: Stetson Wright Builds Impressive Lead Ahead of Governor’s Cup
Stetson Wright will enter the NFR in the No. 1 spot come December, the only question is how big will his lead be? As we stand he head to the Governor’s Cup with a lead of $88,000 over Ky Hamilton. Winners of the Cup have the potential to win up to $45,000, not including ground money. The more likely scenario is Wright has another big weekend and adds to his over $328,000 in Bull Riding season earnings.
Here is a look at the top 20 in the PRCA Bull Riding World Standings.
No. 1 Stetson Wright, $328,629
Stetson Wright continued an incredible stretch of Bull Riding last weekend. Wright took the Wing & Barrel Western Days Rodeo with an 86.5 point ride. over the last three weeks, Wright has won the Ellensburg Rodeo, placed second at the Cinch Playoffs in Puyallup, placed third at the Pendleton Roudnup and the New Mexico State Fair, and second at the Lion’s Dixie Round-up.
No. 5 Trey Holston, $178,544
It was a big weekend for Trey Holston, who is now under $1,000 behind Tristen Hutchings for fourth place. Holston won the Cowboy Capital of the World PRCA Rodeo with an 88-point ride and placed second at the Amarillo Tri-State Fair and Rodeo with an 87-point ride. Holston won nearly $4,000 total on the weekend.
No. 17 Trey Benton III, $107,478
Trey Benton is in a unique position. He is currently $20,000 out of 15th place in the World Standings, but he does have a massive opportunity on the final weekend. Benton will be competing in the Governor’s Cup while No. 16 Jestyn Woodward and No. 15 Cullen Telfer will not be competing. If Benton can get the win in South Dakota he will lock in his spot at the NFR in the final weekend of the season. Depending on what Telfer does, he may only need to earn just over $20,000 so he can make the NFR without a win.
