Murus Sanctus, the West Parisian team, started its 2012 season in Chantilly, where it had ended that of 2011 by winning the French Open. The first satisfactory outcome in the beginning of a promising season at the Polo Club of the Chantilly Domain. In spite of questionable weather conditions, this first final could take place on a field of excellent quality and even with a few unattended rays of sunlight. The spectators bordered a whole side of the field, thanks to the appealing face-to-face encounter of Pancho Bensadon (h9) and Dario Musso (h7). But the solid rock of In The Wings was missing backup by his very young teammates Ramiro Zavaletta and Thomas Calascibetta, with an average of about 18 years of age. Vis-a-vis of them, the youth of Pablo Llorente (age: 21), current world champion with Argentina, has not really been troublesome. His action brought about the decision for Corinne Ricard’s team: 5/1 at the end of the 3rd chukka and 8/3 as the final result. This match was preceded by an encounter between young players of the Poney Club, all based in Apremont (the location of the polo club) or neighbour villages... and thus unsheathed the talent-sculpting ability of the first club in France.
