“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of 2019 and 2020 PBR World Champion Bucking Bull, Smooth Operator,” Chad Burger Bucking Bull said in a Facebook post. “He had the heart of a champion and he sure did prove it. 001 made 8 trips to the PBR World Finals, recorded 130 outs, [and] had an 89.9% buck-off percentage. [He] was the oldest bull to win a World Championship and he earned two of them! It’s not very often a bull-like him comes along, but we were extremely honored to have him and experience the exciting ride he took us on! He will be missed.”

Smooth Operator, according to PBR.com, was last used at the 2021 PBR World Finals. Derek Kolbaba was the last to ride him.

The bull received a 38.5 bull score, the site reported. He had a buck-off time at 5.52.
