Joe Barry Memorial Underway
Opening wins for La Fe & CK Shack
The Joe Barry Memorial features four teams, including Beverly Polo who recently won The Iglehart Cup. The Joe Barry Memorial was founded in 2005 in honour of Joe Barry, who passed away in 2002 and was inducted into the Polo Hall of Fame in 1999 and his polo career included six U.S. Open Polo Championship titles, three USPA Gold Cup titles, and the 1971 Coronation Cup in England.
Last year’s winners, Lucas Escobar will this year join a new team, La Fe, while Matias and Kristos 'Keko' Magrini are featuring in CK Shack’s line-up.
The action kicked off yesterday, Sunday 9 January, and saw La Fe defeat 2021 finalists Beverly polo, 12-11 and the second match of the day was a success for CK Shack, who despite a player substitution (Tomas Willans played for Dominic State), defeated Patagones 13-9.
