Tickets are still available and can be purchased at Westoba Place at the Keystone Centre Box Office and online at

Chanse Switzer vs. Allemand Left

Chanse Switzer has been on this bull once before, earlier this year. Chad made the mistake of diving over there a little bit took quick, and it dropped him in the well. But Chanse knows exactly what he did wrong on this bull and knows that he should be able to get him covered for a good score. One that should fit him really well, leave the box with him clean. We’ll see a good score in the mid-80s to set Chanse up for the short round. With the year that he’s been having, look for him to continue the momentum rolling into Brandon.

Cody Coverchuk vs. Emerald Inn

This one is a standout on the daysheet due to the fact that they have matched up three times before, and Cody has ridden him every single time. He won the event in Camrose, Alberta on the back of this bull. He knows what this bull is all about, knows what he feels like, knows his style. Look for Cody to have all the confidence in the world coming into this one, to knock out an 87-88-point ride, a possible round win on Emerald Inn.

Brock Radford vs. Al Capone

Brock’s been struggling with some injuries through the last season, and some bit. Talking to Brock the other day he has a lot of confidence back in his knee. He feels good, he feels strong. He made a good ride in Brooks the other weekend, other than the slap, would have been a round win for him. It looks like Brock is back to the Brock that we know and love, with confidence in himself. This is a good bull that’s been around for a long time. Has some suck back, should be in the gate to the left, one that Brock should eat up and have some fun with, and set himself up to come back for the championship round and kick off his 2024 season how he would like to, at the top of the list.

Weston Davidson vs. Busta Rhymes

Rematch for Weston Davidson on Busta Rhymes, he rode this bull at the Rose City Invitational for a good score, and this is one that the guys like to get on. Could go either way, a lot of action to him. But Weston knows what he’s all about, knows what he feels like. Weston is coming off a great event at the Elk Ridge Resort, 8 Seconds at The Ridge, where he took the long round on day two. He has lots of confidence in himself, wants to get up in those standings and make a run at the Canadian Championship this year, and this is a good place for him to do it. He’ll match really well with this bull and come back in that mid-range for a good pick in the championship round.

Chad Hartman vs. Chairman Frank

This is one that Chad has matched up before, it’s gone Chad’s way before. This bull is going to be out one, or two, around to the left, into Chad’s hand. Really fits his style. One that the guys also like to get on. And when Chad’s got one that he knows that he can stay on, look for him to do exactly that. This bull is a great bull, could be that 87-point range to set Chad up at the top of the leaderboard to come back in the championship round in really good shape to try and win his first event of the season.
