25 09 2012
The Spanish team went all the way to the top on home soil in the FEI Nations Cup Promotional League Final in Barcelona after a thrilling competition at the Olympic arena of the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona. Spain left Sweden behind them in second, and Italy in third. The Spanish team consisted of Pilar Cordon on Nuage Bleu, Paola Amilibia Puig on Prunella d'Ariel, Manuel Anon on Baldo DS and Sergio Alvares Moya on Action Breaker - with Pilar being the best on the team with two clear rounds.
Sweden was in the lead on a zero penalty score after round one with three out of four riders producing clear rounds, but things changed in round two. The last riders to go on the two best teams Sweden and Spain were left to battle it out for the win. Sergio Alvares Moya saved the day for Spain with a clear second round leaving his team at a total of eight penalties, while Swedish Peter Fredicson with H&M Cash In was unlucky to have one pole down leaving Sweden at a total of 12 penalties. Spanish victory was secured with the enthusiasm of the spectators who filled the stands of the Real Club de Polo.
The FEI Nations Cup is set for big changes in 2013, and as it looks now today's FEI Nations Cup Promotional League final carries little consequences for the teams that competed there.
