Riesenbeck, Germany – April 24, 2019 – Sadly, Ludger Beerbaum‘s (GER) Chiara 222 passed away. The German legend released the following statement on his website:

“Sad news from our stable. Chiara died this morning.
Four weeks after a colic operation, her condition has deteriorated so much,
that, after consultation with the doctors, we decided to put Chiara to sleep for the benefit of the animal.”

Ludger Beerbaum says: “Of course, this decision makes a lot of difference to us, and Chiara has been much more to me than a sports mate over the years.” – Ludger Beerbaum
