From Connecticut’s Greenwich Polo Club it’s the 2015 Waterbury Cup. My coverage of the world’s OLDEST team sport continues.
GAME ONE – White Birch took on Airstream in First Round action. Playing for White Birch, possibly the most storied Polo team in American history, were: Santino Magrini (Ace), Hilario Ulloa (Deuce), Mariano Aguerre (Chevy) and Peter Brant (Back). Airstream’s roster was: Peter Orthwein (Ace), Guillermo Aguero (Deuce), Michel Dorignac (Chevy) and Mariano Gonzalez (Back).
When the 6 Chukkers were in the books White Birch had won this defense-heavy match by a final score of 10 goals to 7. Best-Playing Pony was Mezquiete, ridden and owned by White Birch’s Hilario Ulloa. (Pictured)
Round Two will be played this Sunday, June 14th at 3pm EST.
