The Cartier Queen’s Cup Gets Underway

Talandracas, La Indiana, RH Polo and Emlor take the charge

Yesterday, Tuesday 22 May, The Cartier Queen’s Cup began at Guards Polo Club in Windsor. The sun was shining and the highly anticipated play did not disappoint. 

First onto the Coworth Park field at midday, were Park Place, making their 22 goal debut, and up against former Cartier Queen’s Cup winners, Talandracas. From the off, Park Place looked like the stronger team, with Juan Britos kicking off the goal scoring for the boys in blue. By the end of the fourth chukka, Park Place were leading 8-6, but as the fifth chukka unfolded Talandracas’ Alejandro Muzzio and Francisco Elizalde fired four goals through the posts to none in response from Park Place. Hugues Carmignac’s team took a two goal lead, which they held into the final chukka, scoring a further two goals to only two in response from Park Place. Talandracas ended their 2018 Cartier Queen’s Cup debut with a 12-10 win.
Next up on the Duke’s Ground, Michael Bickford’s La Indiana, with 2018 addition Facundo Pieres, took on the all-Brit El Remanso. La Indiana were very much in the driving seat from the first throw-in and were leading 7-3 after four, heated chukkas. El Remanso found their stride later in the game, with Charlie Hanbury scoring two spectacular shots at goal, but as the final whistle went, they just couldn’t rein in last year’s finalists. La Indiana went away with their first win, 8-7. 
RH Polo were the next team to make their 2018 debut today, Wednesday 23 May, as they came up against Les Lions, a team who returns to the UK high goal after a number of years off the field. RH Polo secured their first win, with an 11-6 final score, thus securing valuable points for the next round.
Emlor and The Hai Air Prince of Wales Trophy winning Monterosso were the final team to take to the field today, at Flemish Farm. Monterosso could not find last week’s excellent form, ultimately losing out to Emlor in today’s battle of wills. Emlor took home today’s win, 10-8. 
Play continues tomorrow, with La Bamba de Areco taking on Clinova at midday at Zacara. For updates, keep an eye on our social media feeds.
