GSTAAD HOSTS THE SPORT OF KINGS IN STYLE
TWO WINNERS OF 20TH HUBLOT POLO GOLD CUP
Four top polo teams competed in the charming village of Gstaad, Switzerland under rainy and stormy skies, for the Hublot Polo Gold Cup. Novice Teams E.I. Sturdza Investment Funds, Team SIR, tied for first place, while Team Banque Baring Brothers Sturdza and Team Gstaad secured places three and four.
The weekend affair was kicked off in an extravagant style by Gstaad Polo President Pierre Genecand who flew in a Swift Copters helicopter to present the match ball in the first scrimmage game. Due to the waterlogged, dangerous terrain and taking into consideration the safety of the players and ponies, a truly competitive match was not possible. Instead, the four team-patrons and the four best players of the tournament were split into two teams to play in a non-competitive manner, replacing the final with a 4-chukka exhibition match. A very close game throughout each chukka, the teams finished with an even score of 7:7.
