Anthem and Laura Kraut. Photo by Jennifer Wood Media, Inc.Laura Kraut's former top ride Anthem has been put to sleep. Laura writes the following on her Twitter account about her famous partner: "It's a sad time for all of us as my great partner, Anthem, had to be euthanized this week. He's been enjoying retirement in Holland with a wonderful family who loved him as I did, but unfortunately it was his time. He was a special friend and partner. I will miss him."

Anthem and Laura enjoyed a fantastisk career together. The pair collected big wins in Madrid, La Baule, Aachen, Rotterdam and Rome to name some. In February 2010 the KWPN gelding was officially retired. Anthem was born in 1991, an originaly given the appropriate name Jumper - he was by Dutchboy out of a Triton-mare.
