The world’s number one polo player Adolfo Cambiaso and his 12-year-old son have won the OUT-SOURCING! Inc Royal Windsor Cup.
It was the first time the Argentinian legend had played at the Guards Polo Club in 18 years, and this time he was joined by his son Aldolfo Junior (aka ‘Poroto’), who was the youngest person in history to be on the winning team.
Joining them in team La Dolfina were UK players Josh Cork and Kian Hall.
A huge crowd gathered in glorious sunshine to watch defending champions Park Place go head-to-head with La Dolfina.
La Dolfina took an early lead with a field goal from Kian Hall and a converted 60-yard penalty by Aldolfo.
The team dominated for most of the game, and the final chukka gave the crowd a masterclass in polo, with Poroto scoring an incredible field goal from the halfway line. The final score was 11-7 to La Dolfina.
The Queen was there to present the prizes, as well as the Most Valuable Player Award, which went to Poroto.
The Best Playing Pony blanket went to Cruiser, owned by Ros Packer and ridden by Adolfo Cambiaso.
