The Triple Crown of the Argentine Polo was declared of “National Interest” by the Presidency of the Nation.
For the first time in history, and after a presentation made by the Argentine Polo Association(AAP), The Triple Crown of the Argentine Polo, integrated by the great openings of The Tortugas Country Club, the Hurlingham club and the Argentinean of Palermo, was declared of “national interest” by the General Secretariat, Presidency of the Nation.
The Triple Crown will be a major Polo tournament and will be played between September 25 and December 15. The president of the mother entity was very happy with the announcement and his kind words were full of joy. He said “That the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship together with the Secretary of Sports have declared the Triple Crown of National Interest is a great achievement of the entire Argentine Pole It is the recognition of a sport deeply rooted in our customs, the horse, the countryside and life in contact with nature and in which Argentina is the undisputed leader in the world. They approached polo to do so and discover this incredible sport.
This statement is a perfect assessment of what the openings of Tortugas, Hurlingham and especially Palermo mean. These tournaments, the most important in the world, are played in our country every year. We invite everyone to discover and enjoy them.”
To settle, the head of the AAP said, “On behalf of the entire Argentine and AAP pole I would like to thank the Secretary General of the Nation, Fernando de Andreis, for his support and support.”
