Team Bronze for Hamilcar Interagro and Malin Morén at 2022 South American Games
Asunción, Paraguay (October 21, 2022) – Hamilcar Interagro and Uruguay’s Malin Morén delivered exceptional tests at the Prix St. Georges and Intermediare I level during the 2022 South American Games, held October 1-15 in Asunción, Paraguay, to help earn Team Bronze. Along with teammates Agustina Bravo, Guillermina Birenbaum, and Carolin Mallmann, Morén and Hamilcar Interagro (Bungo Interagro x Tiffany Interagro) posted a score of 126.589 to take Bronze. As a precursor to the 2023 Pan American Games set to be held next fall in Santiago, Chile, these Games once again prove the mettle of the Interagro Lusitano on the world’s stage.
Bred in Itapira, São Paulo, Brazil on the tropical breeding and training center of Interagro Lusitanos, Hamilcar Interagro was sold by Interagro as a yearling in 2012. His lineage includes Ofensor (MV), arguably the most influential and iconic modern Lusitano stallion, Novilheiro (MV), and Yacht (SA). Hamilcar sire, Bungo Interagro, competed through the international FEI level in dressage, and boasted spectacular movement and conformation. Hamilcar Interagro clearly inherited his sire’s talent for dressage, and with Morén in the irons the pair danced their way through the Prix St. Georges, Intermediare I, and Intermediare I Freestyle in Paraguay. Their freestyle featured upbeat music by Ed Sheeran and earned scores as high as 72% from individual judges on the panel.
“Hamilcar Interagro is the most wonderful horse to ride,” said Morén. “His gaits are fantastic, especially his extended trot and collected work. It’s been very easy for him to learn new things and to quickly advance to higher levels in dressage. He is the perfect companion on the show grounds, I think he knows how beautiful he is and loves getting applause from the audience. In Odesur 2022, he proved that he is ready for the bigger competitions. He is a very special horse with a big heart and a mind made to compete!”
