Germany’s Julia Krajewski announced via Instagram yesterday that her decorated five-star partner Samourai du Thot —  winner of numerous four-stars, the 2017 Luhmühlen five-star, and back-to-back German eventing championships — will be retired from competition following the loss of one of his eyes due to an infection. Though the 15-year-old gelding will be able to enjoy a healthy retirement, we’re devastated for Julia and for all of Sam’s connections who are surely mourning the truncation of a superstar career which very well could have included the Tokyo Olympics.
