Lechuza wins 2017 Caribbean Open

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

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.
