Kingaroy campdraft champion Mark Buttsworth took home the $40,000 first prize at the recent Cloncurry Stockman’s Challenge and Campdraft.
This is the fourth time Buttsworth has taken out the Challenge.
He was aboard ‘Branchvale Metal Alloy’, a stallion by ‘Metallic Cat’ out of ‘Reys Little Hottie’.
Second place went to another South Burnett campdrafter, Jon Templeton, on the colt ‘TRR Dual Smart Olena’.
‘TRR Dual Smart Olena’ is by ‘Dual Smart Rey’ out of “TRR Ms Pepcid Olena’ and was imported sight unseen from the United States in January by Coolreagh Performance Horses.
His outing at Cloncurry was his first competition in the ring.
