Argentine Update

Jockey Club Ends and Tortugas Begins

The Jockey Club Open Final was played on Saturday 16 September between La Dolfina Valiente and Tortugas. It was a battle between top names in polo on La Dolfina’s side versus youth for Tortugas. La Dolfina swiftly asserted their dominance and by half-time held a convincing 10-2 lead. In the second half, Tortugas began to close the gap, however in the end experience prevailed and La Dolfina Valiente secured a 12-8 win. Adolfo Cambiaso and Bob Jornayvaz are no strangers to victory, having won the 2017 US Triple Crown (US Open, USPA Gold Cup & C.V. Whitney Cup Final), whilst this is the seventh consecutive Argentine season Cambiaso, Mac Donough and Nero have played together. This familiarity was displayed on the field and no doubt contributed towards their success. 

Attentions now turn to The Tortugas Open, which begins tomorrow, Tuesday 19 September. This contest is the first link of the Triple Crown 2017 organised by the Argentine Polo Association, which will continue with the 124th Hurlingham Open at Palermo.
