2019 PBR World Finals – Round 4 Review
Just a quick wrap-up of last night as it is almost time to head to the Arena.
It was another rough night for the Aussies, and they were all down early.
Cliff Richardson sits 10th in the event standings, so a qualified ride today will secure his spot in the Championship Round, or he will have to wait and see how his 175.25 holds up with the Top-15 returning.
Rubens Barbosa posted the fourth-highest PBR World Finals score in history, combining with 2019 ABBI Classic Champion and World Finals Classic Event Champion Chiseled (D&H Cattle Co/Flinn) for a mammoth 97.75 point ride. Chiseled earned 47 from the PBR judges and was marked 93.2 points in the ABBI Classic.

2019 PBR World Finals – Championship Sunday Preview
Lawson Nobbs will be out in Section 2, as will Cliff Richardson and we will see Brady Fielder in Section 4.
Nobbs will face Ain’t Easy Being Me from D&H Cattle and Craig Moore. This bull has only been ridden three times in 29 trips and turns back to the left. He looks relatively simple, be he seems to add some forward movement into his spin at an opportune time to dislodge the rider.
Richardson goes against Jaywalker from Torres Brothers Bucking Bulls. Just one rider has made the bell in 19 outs on this bull. He takes a few long jumps to clear the gate and can turn back left or right. He catches a lot of air and slowly works the rider into a bad spot.
Fielder will take on Gambini from Dakota Rodeo, Julie Rosen, Clay Struve and Chad Berger. This is a veteran bull that has been out 64 times and covered 14 times. We haven’t seen him much on tour this year, but he prefers turning right. He has had trouble clearing the chutes at times during his career and that can alter this pattern.
Here is the complete daysheet for Round 5 and the Short Round pen.
