The final of the San Jorge Open was set on Friday after Ellerstina Pilot beat La Dolfina Valiente on Palermo’s number two ground. It looked as if Bob Jornayvaz’s team was going to take the win, but Pilot pulled it back in the last two chukkas to secure their place in the final.
Thus, Ellerstina Pilot will play the final on Sunday against La Dolfina. It will be the first time since last year’s Hurlingham Open final that Facundo, Gonzalo, and Nicolás Pieres share a field with Adolfo Cambiaso.
