KWPN-approved Cantona TN deceased
The approved Codex One-son Cantona TN (out of Claudia Z by Caretano Z, bred by M. van de Bruggen of Goirle) has unexpectedly deceased last weekend, as was announced by Team Nijhof on Facebook. The 9-year-old stallion died from the effects of a stomach rupture.
Cantona TN was a grandson of the famous Carthago-daughter Larthago, that produced multiple 1.60m horses and approved stallions Harey VDL and Casago. The stallion was successful in sport himself with Kars Bonhof. The combination was active at international 1.45m level and won the CSIU25 Grand Prix of Herning.
In 2017, the then-four-year-old Cantona TN was registered in the studbook with 84.5 points. The stallion was awarded a 9 for rideability. By now, he has 156 at KWPN registered offspring, his eldest children are currently three years old.
