Pilot Prevail in USPA Gold Cup

Gauntlet of Polo continues

Yesterday, Sunday 27 March, Pilot took their first title in three years, defeating Park Place in The USPA Gold Cup Final at International Polo Club Palm Beach. Pilot received a one goal handicap advantage and by half-time their attacking prowess had secured them a promising two goal lead. However, one should never underestimate Park Place, who made a remarkable comeback to tie the scores 9-9 at the end of the fourth chukka, with both teams battling hard to score in the fifth which ended in another tie, 10-10. A scoreless sixth chukka pushed the match into an extra chukka, which saw Facundo Pieres score the golden goal for Pilot, securing them the 11-10 win. Pieres was named Most Valuable Player and Open Azarenka, also played by Pieres, was chosen as both the Best Playing Pony and Argentine Polo Pony Breeders Assn. Best Playing Pony.
