Westchester Cup Results- 2013 Audi International Polo Series

On Sunday, July 28th, I captained the USA team against England in the Westchester Cup at Guards Polo Club.  After 16 years of being played in the USA, we were excited to return the series to the UK, where thousands of people came out to watch the match. The game was intense and filled with excitement. We were tied 11-11 and went to over-time.  Polito Pieres almost made a winning goal, but his shot was wide and England made the tie-breaking goal to take the Westchester Cup. All was not lost though, the game was well played and I couldn’t have been more proud of my team. After the game, HRH The Prince of Wales gave me the Donoso Trophy for The Best Player from the visiting team. The entire experience was thrilling, and the atmosphere was energetic, and I hope to go back to England to try to win the trophy again soon!

Westchester Cup – 2013 Audi International Polo Series

On Sunday, July 28th, I will compete in the Westchester Cup, one of polo’s oldest and most prestigious cups. It was created in 1886 and is a three game match between the United States and England.   Today, it’s part of the Audi International Polo Series.  This year, I have the honor of representing the USA as captain of the Equus & Co. USA Team as we take on the Audi England team and their captain, Luke Tomlinson. This year’s match will be held at the Guards Polo Club in Windsor Great Park. What I love most about this match is the history and friendly rivalry behind it. To me, it’s an honor to be able to say I am playing in the same tournament the “Big Four” once played in, in 1909! The last time the match was played was in 2009 at the Palm Beach International Polo Club. I had the privilege of being on the USA team back then as well, but after a tough game, England took home the trophy. After 16 years of the Westchester Cup being played in the states, it’s time to back to England and win the match! Prince William, Prince Henry and I looking at polo’s most prestigious trophy, the Westchester Cup! Who will take it home this year? A picture of the Audi England Captain, Luke Tomlinson, and I.

A Dinner Party By BRAVO TV’s Chef Roblé & Co

Last summer, I had the pleasure of filming with BRAVO TV’s Chef Roblé & Co, when he helped me throw a dinner party for a few friends out in the Hamptons.  And I must admit, he can cook a great meal! Upon request, he made one of my family’s favorite meals: Argentine Asado. For those of you who have never had the chance to try the dish, Asado is a classic Argentine barbeque meal.  He even created blood sausage from scratch! Check out some of the clips below from the premiere of next Wednesday’s episode.  I had a ton of fun filming and getting to know Roblé and his team. I was so pleased with the party and couldn’t be happier about how it turned out. Also, a big thank you to my friend Michael Borrico for allowing us to throw the party at his gorgeous estate. Click here to watch the previews. Catch the full episode next Wednesday, June 19th at 10pm on...
