May 23, 2019
Albuquerque, N.M. – 2017 World Champion Jess Lockwood (Volborg) brought the packed DreamStyle Arena in Albuquerque to its feet as he recorded a monster 91.25-point ride aboard Bad Decisions (TNT Bucking Bulls/Hart Cattle Co.) during the 15/15 Bucking Battle at the Ty Murray Invitational, presented by Isleta Resort and Casino.
Lockwood was one of only three cowboys to make the 8 in the special round of competition. For his efforts, the Montana native earned $8,666.67 and 150 world points to move him from No. 4 to No. 3 in the world standings.
Lockwood, in his quest for a second world championship, is now a mere 464.16 points behind world No. 1 Jose Vitor Leme (Ribas do Rio Pardo, Brazil).
Jess is only recently back from an injury sustained in February. Lockwood finished 7th on the weekend.
