1999 PRCA Hall of Fame and 2019 PBR Brand of Honor Bucking Bull – J31 BODACIOUS (Andrews Rodeo Company / Sammy Andrews) was a powerful 1,900-pound yellow bovine, considered by some to be the greatest ever to buck. As a two-time PRCA champion bull (1994, 1995), he is one of only two bulls to have won both PBR and PRCA titles. He was also considered the world’s most dangerous bull. After Bodacious seriously injured several bull riders, his owner Sammy Andrews retired the notorious bovine in 1995, after 135 outs and only 8 qualified rides.
Bo toured state fairs and rodeos throughout the US and even appeared as a celebrity guest at Harrah’s and the Silverton Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. His career has been featured in Sports Illustrated and GQ magazines and profiled on Fox Tv’s Guiness World Records Prime Time. In 2004, Outdoor Life visited the Andrews ranch and filmed a documentary titled “Fearless Bodacious.” The rodeo world lost one of the greatest animal athletes in May 1999, when Bo passed away after complications from medicine for a bone infection. Houston Rodeo and Livestock show presented Sammy with a bucking chute to use as a memorial for Bo’s grave, which remains on the ranch today. The Bodacious legacy continues to live on through his offspring.
