About 700 mighty bulls were released into the arena and they raced past the bunch of tamers.

Karthik of Karuppayurani emerged victorious by taming 21 bulls and won the first prize. Similarly, the bull belonging to Tamilselvan of Pudukkottai, which evaded from being tamed, won the first prize - a car given away on behalf of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin to the owner. A car was also presented on behalf of Chepauk legislator Udayanidhi Stalin to the best tamer, on the occasion.
