Argentine Spring Season Begins

Duke of Edinburgh Trophy finalists decided

As the UK season begins to wind down, the international polo community’s focus naturally shifts towards the Southern hemisphere, with a spotlight on Argentina. 

On Tuesday 4 September, the traditional Spring Season opener, Abierto de San Jorge, began. Meanwhile the first Semi Finals for the high goal were played in The Duke of Edinburgh Trophy. The first Semi Final at Alfredo Lalor de Pilar saw Indios defeat La Dolfina Brava 12-11, thus securing their place in Saturday’s Final (8 September). Meanwhile in the second Semi Final, this time played at La Dolfina, saw La Dolfina Valiente triumph over La Virgencita 9-5 to take the remaining place in the Final which is scheduled to be played on Saturday 8 September on Palermo’s Field 1. 
Yesterday, Wednesday 5 September saw the first of the medium goal tournaments begin with the Copa Cnl. Francisco Reyes Carrere. La Natividad faced SJ El Aduar defeating them 8-6 in the first Semi FInal. Play continues this week with the second Semi Final taking place on Friday between La Mariana and La Natividad 30 Yardas at 2pm (local time), with the Final following on Saturday at 1pm (local time) between La Natividad and the Winner of the second Semi Final on Palermo’s Field 1.
Later on this month the historic and world-famous Argentine Triple Crown gets underway, with The Tortugas Open beginning on Tuesday 25 September. Polo Times will be bringing you all the updates from the Argentine season. Not a subscriber? Click here to subscribe today!
