Pueblo boy becomes World Mutton Bustin' champ

A 6-year old boy from Pueblo now holds the title: World Mutton Bustin Champion. Preston Gasperetti rode to victory on the back of a sheep for 6-seconds and earned a high score of 83.5 points. The event, sponsored by Tommy Giodone Productions, took place in October in California.

On Wednesday in Pueblo, Gasperetti received his prizes which included a customized belt-buckle, a jacket, a trophy and a $5,000 savings bond.

"When I turned 5 I really was going to do it, I told my dad I would promise him I would do it and then I just did it," said Preston Gasperetti.

"He really did do phenomenal," said Tommy Giodone.

Gasperetti defeated nearly 40 other boys and girls his age, to clinch the world title.
