With the Sotogrande Gold Cups settled for another year, you might have been forgiven for thinking you could put down your polo diary, but not yet as the AAP have announced the dates for the 2017 Triple Crown which kicks off with the start of the Tortugas Open qualifiers in just three weeks time on Tuesday 19 September. In its traditional format, six teams grouped into two zones will be competing to reach the Final on Saturday 7 October. The Zones are as follows:

7/10 – Final: Winner Zone A vs Winner Zone B
The Torneo Remonta & Veterinaria will be played between Thursday 21 September – Friday 29 September at Sede Alfredo Lalor de Pilar and Campo Argentino de Polo in Palermo; this tournament defines the order of the classification of teams in positions 7 to 10 for the Hurlingham and Argentine Opens.
