20 years after, Talandracas wins the 22nd edition of the Open de France



The historical French Open this year was played with 16 teams, 48 games and 11 players of the Argentine Open.

Twenty years after their first and only victory until today, Talandracas wins the 22nd edition of the Engel & Völkers French Open in a magnificent way. A final as great as this magical tournament that offered throughout eighteen days one fabulous game after the other, especially since the quarter finals where no misstep was allowed. This Open ends with the triumph of a mythical team, Talandracas, of a fabulous mare, Peregrino La Banda "Bandita" and of a rising star, Juan-Martin Zubia.


Before getting into the details of this final, it is important to applaud the work of the club, and in particular its director and polo manager, Philippe Perrier. It is thanks to them that the Open de France Engel & Völkers has now found its place as one of the three biggest tournaments in Europe. Proof of this is the number of teams engaged (16) and the amount of the top 40 players (11) within these formations. All of which were unanimous in their appreciation of the welcome, the quality of the organisation and the grounds.

In front of a record 2,000 spectators, the final taking place on "Honneur 1" offered a great game that Talandracas immediately took control of without really worrying about Los Dragones, who seemed to be a bit stunned by what was at stake. Spanish version: Veinte años después de su primera y única victoria hasta hoy, Talandracas gana la 22ª edición del Engel & Völkers French Open de forma magnífica. Una final tan grandiosa como este mágico torneo que ofreció a lo largo de dieciocho días un fabuloso partido tras otro, especialmente desde los cuartos de final donde no se permitió ningún paso en falso. Este Open termina con el triunfo de un equipo mítico, Talandracas, de una yegua fabulosa, Peregrino La Banda "Bandita" y de una estrella en ascenso, Juan Martín Zubia.
