Swedens Rolf-Göran Bengtsson wins Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Monaco

Swedens Rolf -Göran Bengtsson this weekend won the Monaco Rounds of  The Global Champions Tour on his super stallion Casall La Silla. The win moves Bengtsson into 5th place on The Global Champions ranking list.  The win increased his bank account by 92,000 Euro and also received his second Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch.

After the win, Bengtsson said:

“My stallion Casall La Silla has always performed brilliantly, be it on the grass at Hamburg or the small course here at Monaco. He’s fantastic. In fact, the son of Caretino, he’s been a favourite with breeders. I am overjoyed this evening having not dared to hope for two GCT victories, especially as I am now the proud owner of another Jaeger-Lecoultre watch.”

Second place went to Germanys Christian Ahlmann on Taloubet Z and 3rd to Rodrigo Pessoa and Let’s Fly.

  1. Edwina Alexander
