Dubai Polo Team has been awarded with the INDI Silver Cup in High Goal in the 44th Land Rover International Polo Tournament. The squad formed by Rashid Albwardy, Martín Valent, Alejo Taranco and Adolfo Cambiaso won the final against Lechuza Caracas by 14-8 and received one of the trophies of the season in High Goal.

From the third chukka, the team led by Rashid Albwardy was a real “war machine” in both attack and defense, blocking all the ways to Victor Vargas’ team. The Venezuelan formation tried to win by all means but its opponent didn’t let him and Lechuza Caracas had a bad evening.

Dubai achieves the INDI Silver Cup and wins this trophy of the 44th Land Rover International Polo Tournament organized by Santa María Polo Club. Besides the trophy, Alejo Taranco’s mare, Delmay Gata, played in the fourth chukka and belonging to Diego Cavanagh, was honoured as the best pony of the final.

Today starts the Bulgari Gold Cup of the Land Rover International Polo Tournament at Santa María Polo Club in Sotogrande, Spain. In the first match, La Indiana will face Lechuza Caracas at 5 pm. In the second match, RH Polo Team meets Murus Sanctus at 6.30 pm.
