Pony Shopping Season Has Begun

Argentine Remate dates for the diary


Polo pony shopping season began this week in Argentina with the first of 12 events in the Asociación Argentina de Criadores de Caballos de Polo Argentino, the association that regulates the stud book for the Polo Argentino breed. These events are unlike any other livestock auction and make a trip to Ascot sales a little drab. Argentine Remates are hugely sociable dates for the diary with the great and the good of polo attending to watch a display of the country’s finest bloodstock go on parade for sale whilst enjoying top-notch hospitality, asados or even some are held in the evenings. All the top teams who breed their own strings hold an event including Triple Crown opponents Ellerstina and La Dolfina as well as Alegría and La Irenita. If you are panning a trip to find some new legs for your summer season, these are the dates for the top sales this month:
