The presentation of the two teams from the Novillo Astrada family, which will be playing the Triple Crown at Palermo this year, was held at the Aguada Polo Club on Wednesday, September 17th.

The Novillo Astrada brothers, Miguel and Eduardo, who represented La Aguada and La Aguada Las Monjitas teams respectively, also presented the new team jerseys. The design includes the JNA initials, in memory of his brother Javier Novillo Astrada, the outstanding polo player who sadly passed away last May (POLO+10 reported). In 2003, Javier and his three brothers managed to win the Triple Crown title (the three Opens of Tortugas, Hurlingham and Palermo), which was an important milestone for the Novillo Astrada legacy, being the first team formed by four brothers to win the coveted title.

La Aguada ICBC and La Aguada Las Monjitas ICBC will make their debut in the Triple Crown in Argentina, on Tuesday, September 23rd, and Wednesday, September 24th, respectively, at the Tortugas Open.
