12-year old Cambiaso Jr. put up a mesmerising performance in final of the oldest Guards Polo Club tournament.
For the first time, the famous father-son duo of Adolfo and Poroto Cambiaso sported a La Dolfina/ Valiente jersey as they went up against Park Place in the Outsourcing Royal Windsor Cup final. Adolfo won UK’s leading 15-goal title for the 2nd time, as La Dolfina beat Andrey Borodin’s side 11 goals to 7.
Playing at number 2 position for the winners was young Kian Hall, whose 5 goals haul kept his team in a lead throughout the game. 2-0 up at the end of the 1st chukka, La Dolfina never gave their lead away. Despite the best efforts of Park Place, guided by Jeronimo de Carril who particularly had a good game, they couldn’t disturb the comfortable lead of Bob Jornayvaz’s side at any point.
Jornayvaz stepped up to receive the coveted trophy from HM The Queen, who also presented Jr. Cambiaso with the Most Valuable Player award. ‘Cruiser’, a 7 year-old mare played by Sr. Cambiaso, was named the Best Playing Pony of the day. All four players of the winning side were also awarded with a four-night trip to Tokyo, and 2-night trip to Paris for the runners-up, courtesy the sponsors Outsourcing Inc.
In the subsidiary Mountbatten Cup Final, Andras Tombor’s Bardon beat Romilla Arber’s Four Quarters Black 11-6, to win the silverware. Hollywood actor Susan Sarandon joined Lady Tatiana Mountbatten and Mr Kazuhiko Suzuki, to present the winners with their trophy.
