The Calgary Stampede is now a Professional Bull Riders-sanctioned event.

All money won, including the $100,000 bonus will count towards the PBR world standings.

The Stampede pulled superstar bareback horse Grated Coconut out of the CFR yesterday. Voted the world's best bareback horse for the third time in four years, the bay stallion twisted his stomach and will be thoroughly checked back on the Stampede ranch.
