Julia Krajewski's Samourai du Thot retired

   Julia and Samourai du Thot win the CCI4* (now 5*) at Luhmuhlen 2017

 

 

Julia Krajewski has advised that her top horse Samourai du Thot will be retired from competition following the loss of an eye

“He got struck by a very severe infection and battled it tremendously, but sadly wasn’t able to completely beat it. To save his life, his left eye had to be removed”

“He has shown me many times how much of a fighter he is, but seeing how he always kept his spirits and never gave up during the hardest of times for him, leaves me even more in awe of my little pocket rocket”

“Of 56 competitions we did, he won 18 and finished 40 times in the Top 5, barely touching a pole and becoming one of the speediest horses around”

Among their many successes, Julia and Samourai du Thot won the CCI5* at Luhmühlen in 2017 and also won back- to-back German Championships in 2018 and 2019

“Despite everything, he is in fairly good spirits now and we will make sure that he gets the sort of retirement life that suits him!” says Julia and we join her in saying Thank You Sam for all the wonderful times
