Mark Tolhurst (+1), Hamish McGregor (+3), Adam Tolhurst (+4) and Dick Doolin (+4) of team Windsor are the winners of the 2013 Sydney Polo Gold Cup. In the final on Sunday, October 20th, the foursome defeated Peter Higgins (+1), Zac Hagedoorn (+4), Kelvin Johnson (+5) and Mike McKechnie (+2) of team Sydney narrowly by 12-11.

Since 2006 the Sydney Gold Cup is being held in Richmond, 60 kilometres in the northwest of Sydney, and is one of the social highlights of the season. The event is popular among the high society and business networkers as well as among families who appreciate the polo matches full of action and the relaxed atmosphere on the sidelines.

This year, 20 teams competed for victory in four different leagues. Four teams had signed up for the highest league (+12).

Sydney Polo Club is the oldest polo club in Australia, its roots date back to 1870. Peter Higgins and his wife Rebecca are the owners of the estate in Richmond which has a size of 450 acres and includes six full-size polo fields.
