La Dolfina Great Oaks Win Prince of Wales

16-13 victory against Gaston

On Saturday 18 May, Dillon Bacon’s La Dolfina Great Oaks really did prove that it is third time lucky as they lifted the 2024 Justerini & Brooks Prince of Wales Trophy at The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club. Dillon Bacon commented on his first Prince of Wales Trophy title, “It was a great game, I think we had a couple of tough games so far where we were able to come out on top, and today again we were neck-and-neck and chasing and then had an amazing sixth chukka where the team really came together where we were all fighting for each other. Obviously Poroto is a machine in those key moments, he really shows his magic. I’ve had the misfortune of playing against Poroto a few times, we lost against him in The Gold Cup and then I went to the states in February and played The C.V. Whitney which was an amazing experience and that was my first time playing alongside Poroto, to build the feeling ahead of the English season and I love being part of the La Dolfina camp – it has been an amazing experience so far.” 

There’s no let up for La Dolfina Great Oaks as they head straight into The Cartier Queen’s Cup with a tough first match on Tuesday 21 May against Dubai.
