2013 USPA National Twenty Goal tournament at the Grand Champions Polo Club

  This past weekend, Team Audi was victorious again, winning the 2013 USPA National Twenty Goal tournament for the second year in a row! The final score was 13-7 and I’m proud to say I contributed 5 of those goals, assisting my team in this incredible win against ELG. My teammate and friend Carlitos Gracida scored the final goal of the match and was awarded MVP. And you can’t forget about the other athletes on the field, the horses!  Best Playing Pony was awarded to a 7-year old mare on the opposing team named Zulu (although I think my horses deserve a round of applause as well).

Super Nations Cup 2013- Tianjin, China

Amazing is the only word I can use for my first visit to China. I had such a blast not only playing in the Super Nations Cup, but also seeing such a beautiful country. Unfortunately, my team was not successful in winning the championship, but we were all very happy to be a part of this time when polo is growing so much globally – especially in this region. The Hong Kong, China team was ultimate champion over England in the Finals. It was a very special moment for them and all of China since they were playing on their home turf. This new experience was exciting and insightful for me.  Not only did I play a sport that I love, but I have made lifelong memories, and learned a lot of new things from China.   I look forward to returning in the...

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!
