On 26th March 2017, the Select Marina Park Grand Prix, named after one of Select’s resorts, was won by Irish rider Richard David Howley on Chinook.
Richard was very pleased with the result saying, “The set-up here is brilliant. My horses have jumped superbly and this weekend alone there were three world-ranking show jumping competitions”.
Richard was followed by Belgium’s Viktor Daem on Bacardi in second place and Britain’s Peter Charles on ABC Quantum Cruise in third.
Lucien Le Moing, Business Development Director for Select Holiday Resorts, jumped at the chance to sponsor the Grand Prix event particularly as a number of the riders were staying at Select Marina Park, just 7 minutes from the Hippodrome. Lucien said, “We are proud to be associated and sponsoring an event on the Costa del Sol Equestrian Tour. We look forward to continuing our relationship when the tour returns for the Autumn Cup”.
