  • August 28, 2016:
    An impressive final match between Ayala and the defending champions, Dubai, didn't disappoint spectators both present and watching the online live stream. It was Ayala who held their lead up until the 5th chukker when Dubai seemed to put up a bigger fight and finally taking the lead. Halfway through the 6th chukker, an uncharacteristic mistake by Adolfo Cambiaso caused Tom Brody to collide with him sending Cambiaso to the ground with thankfully nothing more than some deep teeth gashes from the horse colliding with him. Play resumed a few minutes later with Juan Martin Nero taking Cambiaso's place and despite the penalty on Dubai, their 11-7 lead wouldn't be challenged. One more score for Dubai finalized the match, 12-7 for Dubai over Ayala
    to keep the title of champions of the Cartier Gold Cup,
    the most important trophy of the 45th INDI International Polo Tournament at Santa María Polo Club
    ​ in Sotogrande, Spain.
