R-Star Retires From Eventing Due To Heart Condition

Kristi Nunnink announced today, April 18, that she's retiring four-star mare R-Star from eventing because of issues with the horse's heart. The mare was entered to compete in the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** next week.

Davis [Calif.] and did a lot of research. She basically only threw them when she was in light work, and when she galloped, her heart would beat really well.”
