Rodrigo and Palouchin open with a win

Friday, 22 July 2011

Rodrigo and Palouchin de Ligny in Chantilly. Photo by Stefano Grasso/GCT.Rodrigo Pessoa and Palouchin de Ligny (Baloubet du Rouet x Chin Chin) won the opening Global Champions Tour class in Chantilly, France, today. It seems like Rodrigo and the home bred Palouchin are making a habit of winning the opening GCT classes, as they also won this class in Estoril. With a clear round over the 1.45 fences, and a time of 33.39, the pair left Denis Lynch and Night Train (Cavalor Z x Papillon Rouge) – a former ride of Rodrigo – in runner-up position with the time of 33.37 seconds.
