Ylvisaker Cup Underway

Action resumes tomorrow

The Ylvisaker Cup is played each year as a tribute to William T. “Bill” Ylvisaker who was responsible for developing polo in the Wellington, Florida area, creating the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club. The tournament began on Wednesday 20 January with Beverly Polo securing the opening win of the tournament with a 11-10 victory over Aspen. The following day, Thursday 21 January, Palm Beach Equine secured a 10-7 win over Tamera and yesterday, Sunday 24 January, saw the latest instalment of action with Aspen vs Palm Beach Equine. Aspen led throughout the match, which was closely contested, and in the fifth chukka Palm Beach Equine managed to outscore Aspen which levelled the scores to 8-8 with just one chukka left to play. However, Lucas James and Ignacio Alberbide scored to secure a 10-8 win for Aspen. It is traditional at International Polo Club, Palm Beach that each Sunday match features an award presentation and yesterday saw Keko Magrini named Most Valuable Player and Ninja Patico, played by Gringo Colombres, chosen as the Best Playing Pony. 
The action continues tomorrow, Tuesday 26 January, with Beverly Polo vs Tamera, after which the next matches will be played over next weekend with Beverly Polo vs Palm Beach Equine on Saturday 30 January and Aspen vs Tamera on Sunday 31 January.
