alex-cafino-lapofhonorAlexander Zetterman celebrates his amazing win in Falsterbo on Cafino. All photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.With his eyes filled with tears, a very emotional Alexander Zetterman received a standing ovation from the home crowds in Falsterbo – while R Kelly’s ‘The World’s Greatest’ roared out. It was easy to understand the hard-working Zetterman’s emotions; he has showed great form the last months – and today he nailed it in front of a Falsterbo-crowd still high on Friday’s second place for the Swedes in the Nations Cup. Riding Cafino (Cardento x Roderik), Zetterman also took the prestigious and traditional Grand Prix home to Sweden for a second year in a row – last year Jens Fredricson won. Not only that, he posted a hot bid for a ticket from his Chef d’Equipe for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
