Chapaleufu La Gitana beat Chapaleufu Heguy Hermanos by a 8-4 score and claimed the Chapaleufu Open for the Copa Horacio and Gonzalo Heguy. The traditional tournament took place, as usual, at Club de Polo Chapaleufu, in Intendente Alvear, Province of La Pampa, and the final was played on Saturday February 25.
The award to the Best Polo Argentino Bred, presented by the Argentine Polo Pony Breeders Association, went to Vasca Hipnosis x Polo Nevadito and Vasca Confianza (x Oro Pastilla), and Clemente Zavaleta took the Fair Play Award.
Despite the very hot weather, “the tournament was a lot of fun to play, with the best vibes, open polo few fouls and played on fantastic fields”, as Eduardo Heguy told PoloLine.
Chapaleufu La Rana claimed the third place, following their 9-7 win over Chapaleufu Santo Domingo.
