The victors and the vanquished on stage after the match.

Mere weeks after winning the Waterbury Cup the storied WHITE BIRCH polo team won the Butler Handicap, clobbering AIRSTREAM by a score of 16-9 in the championship match. The Greenwich Polo Club was the scene of the action.

White Birch rode onto the polo grounds playing like a team possessed on both offense AND defense.

They swatted in 3 goals in the 1st Chukker, an amazing 5 in the 2nd Chukker and 2 more in the 3rd to head into Halftime with an intimidating 10-4 lead over their opponents from Airstream. 

From there the outcome was never in doubt and White Birch went on to win the match by a final score of 16 goals to 9. Mariano Aguerre led the victors with 6 goals of his own.
