UAE Undefeated in Dubai

The Julius Bär Gold Cup 2019

The UAE Polo Team’s undefeated streak continued in Dubai, as they lifted The Julius Bär Gold Cup 2019 trophy on Friday 8 March in front of a crowd of spectators and fans at Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club.
Prior to the highly anticipated Final, between Habtoor Polo and UAE Polo Team, Abu Dhabi Polo Team defeated Zedan 9-8 in the Subsidiary Final, which was followed by a display from the Dubai Police Marching band and the UAE National Anthem.
Both teams came out evenly in the first chukka, which ended 3-2 in UAE Polo Team’s favour, and as the teams headed towards half-time, UAE still held the lead 8-3. Habtoor Polo came back in the fourth chukka, ending the play 9-6, but despite valiant attempts to even the scoreboard by Facundo Sola and Tommy Beresford, the UAE Polo team left the field the victors 10-8. Alejandro Muzzio was named the Most Valuable Player, whilst his pony Milly was awarded the Best Playing Pony rug.
The Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series continues with the 18 goal Dubai Challenge Cup, which begins on Saturday 16 March.
