As a sire, Kannan is one of the best suppliers of showjumping horses in the world. He owes this to a large number of children who excel in international show jumping, including the Olympic Champion and World Cup winner Nino des Buissonnets, Molly Malone, Quabri de L'Isle and a whole host of other international top offspring!
On the dam's side, Kochio Z is blessed with the blood of Diamant De Semilly, which means that twice the best French jumping genes are anchored in Kochio Z. The dam of Kochio Z, Datura Z, jumped at 1m35 level under the saddle of Jolien van Turnhout, while granddam Corrada competed at 1m40 level under the saddle of Nick van Turnhout.
The rest of this dam line can also be seen in the sport. For example, at 1m60 level we see the showjumpers La Belle J (Tobias Schwarz), For Cash 2 (Anita Sande) and Cazino Cash (Stasys Jasas). Furthermore, Corrado 123 jumped at 1m55 level under the saddle of Joachim Heyer and the 1m45 jumping Casaltina (Philip Houston) is also related to this Kochio Z.
