Father and son teams, Valiente I vs Valiente II, took to the Piaget
Field at International Polo Club Palm Beach to play in the 2012 U.S.P.A.
26 goal Royal Salute C.V. Whitney Cup Final. The 13th Duke of Argyll,
the Royal Salute Ambassador, was on hand officiating the opening
ceremony coin toss as well as handing out the trophies at the award
ceremony. The first chukker started off slowly with numerous whistles
breaking up the plays, but by the 2nd chukker, the game was moving along
with lots of back and forth action and both teams scoring. It was an
evenly matched game as the score throughout was either tied up or within
a point's difference - both teams playing brilliantly. With the start
of the final 6th chukker, the score was all tied up 8-8, but in the end,
Valiente I defeated Valiente II; father showing son that his well put
together team had what it took to be victorious over some of the world's
best polo players - the final score 10-8.
Polito Pieres of Valiente I was named MVP & Adolfo Cambiaso's mare was named Best Playing Pony. ~ WellingtonPolo.com
