Lechuza wins 2017 Caribbean Open
After about 100 days of excellent polo, the second edition of the Polo Challenge, in the Dominican Republic, has come to an end with Venezuela’s Lechuza Caracas emerging as the 2017 champions.
On Friday during the afternoon, the final of the Caribbean Open took place, pitting the undefeated Lechuza Caracas against Cinque Terre.
Previously, during the morning, the Subsidiary Finals took place, a battle between Casa de Campo and HPA. The much awaited final match took place in a very special setting: Casa de Campo was crowded and joyful, as there was not only polo on the agenda but also a spectacular “Concours d’elegance” a show of antique cars with many exceptional vehicles to admire.
Before the final, as in every final of the Polo Challenge, the National Anthem was sung by Johanna Almánzar and at the end of the day visitors and fans left the venue having had a filled day.
