UAE Polo Remains Unbeaten

Dubai Challenge Cup Final

Yesterday, Wednesday 27 March, the fourth trophy of The Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series 2019 was held aloft by the victorious, and so far unbeaten, UAE Polo. The rainy afternoon began with the Subsidiary Final between Dubai Wolves and Shanshal/PBS. Each chukka of this match saw the teams on an equal footing, with the scores regularly tied, but in the end it was Dubai Wolves who were able to clinch the win with a score of 8-7½ and Justo Cuitino as the top scorer of the match. 
Next up was the much-awaited Final of The Dubai Challenge Cup, between UAE Polo and AM Polo. UAE Polo took an early start with goal from Lucas Monteverde and Alejandro Muzzio, with HH Sheika Maitha closing the second chukka with another goal to give UAE Polo a three goal advantage going into half-time, 4-1. The following two chukkas saw four goals from AM Polo’s Guillermo Cuitiño, but UAE Polo maintained their momentum and Monteverde closed the game with a final goal to take the scores to 8-5 in favour of UAE Polo. Mohammed Al Habtoor, Vice Chairman and CEO of Al Habtoor Group awarded the runners-up and winners of the Dubai Challenge Cup 2019. Lucas Monteverde was named the Most Valuable Player and MDQ, played by Sheikha Alya Al Maktoum, won the Best Playing Pony.
The Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series 2019 continues on Tuesday 2 April with the 8 goal Dubai Cup, which concludes on Friday 12 April.
