The first horse produced by Dejan Krunic Sporthorses in France, Ekano DKS (Kannan-Cumano), was presented last week at the Selle Français national stallion selection/qualification in St. Lo by his owners Sophie and Richard Levallois, of Haras de Semilly. His combined score from the three qualification metrics, Modelle (Conformation), Allures (Movement) and Saut en Liberté (Free Jumping), placed him 7th out of 96 presented 3-year-olds. More spectacularly, he received the highest score for Modelle (Conformation) and placed near the top for Allures (Movement) and Saut en Liberté (Free Jumping). We're thrilled to see such a spectacular showing from the first horse produced in France. We're also particularly pleased with his scores, since the experts at Haras de Semilly made the very wise decision not to over-prepare their colts in Free Jumping so as not to wear them out young. We're thrilled to see Ekano DKS being cultivated so carefully by such a fantastic program, and we look forward to his showing in the final stallion selection this fall.
Ekano DKS is Kannan out of Kumana DKS (Cumano-Cento). This year Kumana DKS gave birth to another Kannan, Hanley DKS. That means that her most recent foal is the full brother of Ekano DKS who is well on his way to being an approved stallion! Hanley DKS is currently for sale.
