Santiago Lambre wins in San Remo

Santiago Lambre, maybe the most “international” horse rider in the world, took first place in the Grand Prix of the international competition in San Remo that has just finished. On Wonami Van Der Aard (with a time of 40.39), he preceded Australian Edwina Alexander on Kisby (41.56), German Kai Schaifer on Peu a Peu (47.49), Greek Athina Onassis and fifth and sixth placed  swissmen Philipp Zeuger and Fabio Crotta. The first Italian, and the only one who went to a jump off, was 11th placed Omar Bonomelli from Brescia. The first three in the jump off made no errors.

Santiago Lambre has the name of the Chilean capital, Argentinian parents, was born in Brazil in Porto Alegre, came through the ranks in Mexico, lives in Belgium and is often present in races in Italy. “In your country, this year I have won three grand prix. I’m very happy to win this one because after the first race I was fifth. So I had to give the maximum on the jump off. I really enjoyed competing in this wonderful place, which absolutely deserves the best events” the 35 year old explained. He has already competed in two Olympics – Athens and Sydney and dreams of qualifying for London next year.
Riders at the San Remo events were from medium to very high level. In almost every race there were top riders on display. The effort of San Remo horse racing and also the president of the club, and organizer of the event, Maria Grazia Valenzano Menada, was greatly appreciated.
