UAE Polo Team Win in Dubai

The Standard Chartered Gold Cup 2020

On Friday 6 March, The Standard Chartered Gold Cup 2020 came to an end at Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club in Dubai, with UAE Polo declared the two-time champions. The team, led by patron Sheika Maitha bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, played in front of a record crowd, against Final rivals Am – UAE Polo, a team making its high goal debut this year. AM – UAE Polo were strong from the off, taking control of the first chukka, but UAE Polo’s Panelo brothers, Benjamin and Tomás, fought back in the second, ultimately tying the match 5-5 at the end of the third. In the fourth, AM – UAE Polo took the lead again, but UAE Polo made a comeback with goals from Brit Tommy Beresford, who put their team 8-6 ahead with one chukka remaining.
Beresford, on fire for UAE Polo, scored a 60 yard penalty to put his team ahead, 9-6. AM – UAE Polo didn’t give up, scoring another two goals, but a final goal from UAE Polo secured the victory and the title. AM – UAE Polo’s Jacinto Crotto was named Most Valuable Player, whilst Nobu, a Thoroughbred played by Tomás Panelo was awarded the Best Playing Pony honours.
