The 55th. Edition of the Potrillos Cup was played on Monday December 12, on the grounds of the Argentine Polo Association, in Pilar. A total of 60 teams took part of this traditional competition, a true craddle of values and future champions, that featured more than 200 kids, between 4-years-old and 14-years-old
The event was under Eduardo Heguy’s supervision, the heart and soul of the tournament, organised by Los Indios Polo Club and Dopo Polo, with thr support of the Argentine Polo Association.
The kids displayed a very good level of play in the six different categories, within hard fought games, that were not decided until the last minute, like the finals of thr Potrillos, Potrillitos and Mini Potrillitos. Camilo Castagnola was named MVP, as well as Lucas Monteverde Jr (Potrillitos) and Paquito de Narvaez (Mini Potrillos).
As a detail, La Aguada La Dolfina, runner up of the Potrillos Cup, was the first team comprised by three girls and one boy to play the final: Manuel Novillo Astrada, who demonstrated his awesome skills in stick-and-ball, was joined by his cousin Mia Novillo Astrada, and Mia Cambiaso and Cande Fernández Araujo.
