Tutor sidelined for remainder of Wrangler NFR

by Matt Naber | Dec 11, 2018

LAS VEGAS – Bareback rider Bill Tutor had his trip to the 2018 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo end abruptly Monday night when he broke his left collarbone.

“After the whistle when I got thrown down I just landed on my shoulder and broke my collarbone,” said Tutor, 27. “Soon as I got up and went to climb up behind the bucking chutes the adrenaline wore off a little bit and I could feel it moving around when I was breathing so I knew it was broke.”

Tutor had an 88-point ride on Korkow Rodeo’s Onion Ring to split third place with Steven Dent. Onion Ring finished second in the 2018 Pendleton Whisky Let’ er Buck Bareback Horse of the Year voting.

Through five rounds of this year’s Wrangler NFR, Tutor is eight in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $154,162. He earned $34,327 at the 2018 Wrangler NFR.

“It is frustrating, but not going to dwell on it,” said Tutor, who had never broken his collarbone before. “There’s nothing I can do about it. It is what it is and I’m going to have surgery (Dec. 18) in Dallas and it is only like a six to eight-week recovery, so I should be ready to go by San Antonio and we will just rock ‘n roll from there.”

The 2019 San Antonio (Texas) Stock Show and Rodeo is Feb. 7-24.

This is the Huntsville, Texas, cowboy’s second trip to the Wrangler NFR as he finished 11th in the worlds standings last year.
