Really recently, he was taking his daily walk with his rider and, last Friday morning at 10 a.m. Kannan passed out, fortunately very quickly, by a heart attack.
This was a tough time for his entourage, who took such good care of him on a daily basis, and this is also a sad news for the world of breeding.
His 28th birthday was just celebrated, including 10 years on the finest sports grounds and as many among the best of all the world's Sires’ rankings of champions. He played a key role in the development of the Groupe France Elevage, which had been managing his breeding career for 10 years.
His offspring have made him a true legend of breeding. They were born in some 40 countries and shone at international level for some 50 nations.
The existing stock of its former straws will allow future champions to continue to be produced for at least one or two years and will allow him to continue to be on the ranking list for a very long time.
The Groupe France Elevage was about to announce that he had bought the full property and that he would put into service this year the straws produced before its purchase. He recalls that he didn’t give consent for the sale of straws; Those that could be put on the straws market are from fraudulent origin.
