The Dutch warmblood bred and registered Kane became the dressage champion of the 2019 Swedish Warmblood Stallion Licensing and Performance testing which concluded in Flyinge on 3 March 2019.
Seventeen colts in total were approved for Swedish breeding. The best dressage bred colts according to the licensing committee was the KWPN bred Kane.
Bred by Martien and Frans Burgers in The Netherlands, Kane is by Dream Boy out of Toscana (by Krack C). He is owned by Antonia Ax:son Johnson of Lovsta Stuteri. In the Netherlands Kane was rejected in the second phase of the 2019 KWPN Stallion Licensing. Kane was presented by Caroline Darcourt and scored 42 points for conformation, 8.9 for gaits, 4.75 for jumping, and 8.25 for dressage. Not to be confused, Kane has a licensed namesake in Germany who is by Dark Pleasure x Sandreo.
