Santa Maria Polo Club 2013


August 31, 2013: Ellerston Polo continues their season domination, defeating UAE Polo in Overtime 18-17 with the winning goal by Facundo Pieres from a 60-yard penalty shot. Sebastian Merlos of UAE was awarded the MVP of the game and Facundo Pieres' mare was awarded the Best Playing Pony award. UAE was certainly a team to be reckoned with, playing an Outstanding game with doubts that Ellerston would recover to win. However, UAE's final downfall proved to be the many penalties against them giving Ellerston the edge and inevitably the win of the 42nd Land Rover International Hublot Gold Cup which ended the high-goal polo season at Santa Maria Polo Club.
