San Jorge Open Final

Valiente La Dolfina beat La Natividad

Yesterday, Wednesday 6 September saw the exciting Final of The 50th San Jorge Open in a packed Palermo stadium. Tournament favourites Valiente/La Dolfina took to the field against La Natividad, which saw Bartolito Castagnola play against his godfather, world number one, Adolfo Cambiaso.

The first chukka began quite evenly, but as the game progressed, Valiente/La Dolfina showed their superiority through a series of mature plays, ultimately controlling the field. After a nail-biting match, the final score rested on 16-8 in favour of the indomitable Cambiaso/Jornayvaz partnership for Valiente/La Dolfina.
This was the first time the new rules, recently introduced by the AAP (please click here for the rules explanation), were put to the test ahead of the Triple Crown later this year. 
The Most Valuable Player Award was presented to Cambiaso, whilst the Best Playing Pony rug was presented to Dolfina Polémica, played by Cambiaso and owned by La Dolfina.
