A tornado named Iván Serrano swept the CaixaBank Grand Prix a few minutes ago. It sounds strange, but it is the first time that Iván has won the title in this traditional Santander International Show Jumping Competition. A milestone that has become a reality with his chestnut Rain Man, an 11 year old Oldenburg horse as fast as they come. The number 8 of the national ranking and his horse entered the arena last in the second round. His first outing on the course already foreshadowed his intentions, in 8 seconds he beat the score of the second best zero, that of the Cantabrian Pablo Diaz Cuevas.

After 4 riders giving their all until the end, it was Iván's turn. Zero points and again a time that improved Pablo's, the only double zero so far, by almost three seconds.

The excitement of the Basque rider, Cantabrian by adoption, who finally managed to win the title of winner of the Caixbank Grand Prix, was noticeable. A great victory that opens the last day of competition in this twenty-first edition.

Behind Iván the podium was completed by Pablo Díaz with Alto du Roc and Rocío Lázaro riding Infamia del Amor, a couple that if they had not committed faults would have swept the race with a time of 41'29 seconds, hundredths of a second faster even than Iván.


An event that, one more summer, once again fills the Cantabrian facilities with a fabulous entertainment offer for the whole family. The bets and the ponies continue, this time, from the hand of Caixabank for the enjoyment of the little ones.
