OMAHA, Nebraska, Mar. 24, 2017–Unee BB, winner of bronze at both the 2015 and 2016 World Cup Finals, has been withdrawn from the Omaha championship by German rider Jessica von Bredow-Werndl apparently suffering colic.

The World Cup on the 16-year-old KWPN stallion was to be the last competition for Jessica before she took a break to have her first child, expected in August.

Unee BB was competed by Jessica on Germany’s bronze medal team at the 2015 European Championships as well as the two World Cup Finals.

The horse was the second to be pulled out at the last minute because of health issues.

Defending champion Glock’s Flirt ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud of the Netherlands withdrew Friday, just hours before boarding an aircraft for the trans-Atlantic flight to Omaha.
