February 22, 2015: Coca-Cola didn't let their fans down today as they continued their perfect winning streak, taking the 2015 USPA 20-goal Ylvisaker Memorial Cup after their difficult win over Valiente, final score 14-13. Julio Arellano was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the final and Dolfina Resta, played by Sapo Caset & owned by Adolfo Cambiaso was awarded the honor of Best Playing Pony. It should be noted that the Coca-Cola team had the same players as it did in 2012 when they won both the 20-goal Herbie Pennell Cup and the 20-goal Joe Barry Cup.
Earlier in the day, Palm Beach Illustrated won the George Haas Subsidiary Final, defeating Tonkawa 12-11. Facundo Obregon was awarded the MVP and his mare Conejita was presented with the Best Playing Pony honors.
