Three-time George Paul Memorial Bull Riding Champion wins San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Xtreme Bull Riding
Trey Benton III, three-time George Paul Memorial Bull Riding Champion has won the San Antonio Stock Show/ Rodeo Xtreme Bull Riding, pocketing $35,250 for his efforts, February 23. The Rock Island, Texas cowboy, is now 27. His final bull of two for the SASSR was a bull he was familiar with, Monte Walsh, owned by 4L & Diamond S Rodeo Company of Weatherford, Texas and Summerville, GA. The bull Monte Walsh was one of the bulls bucked at the George Paul last year and has also appeared at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. He will return to Del Rio again this year.
Known as a “money bull” if you can last 8 seconds, he is a bull that riders like to draw at rodeos and on the Xtreme Bulls Tour events. Benton will return to the 42nd George Paul Memorial Xtreme Bull Riding April 26 & 27, 2019 in Del Rio, TX, a PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour event. Money won at the George Paul counts for qualification for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in December where only the top 15 PRCA bull riders qualify for a chance to win money, 10 million at the ten- day event.
When asked earlier this year if he was returning to the George Paul he said, “without a doubt. I want to be the first four-time George Paul winner”.
