CHATEAU D’AULNE & DARK ICE: DESERVED CHAMPIONS ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA

A fantastic polo day was held on Sunday at tSaint Tropez Polo Club with the finals of the Cote d’Azur Polo Cup, the first 18-goal tournament on the French Riviera. After two thrilling matches, guests enjoyed the “Sunday Polo”, the traditional event created by the club for each final day; this time the theme was “Hippie Chic”.

The 18-goal final kicked off at 5pm, with a clash between Chateau D’ Aulne and Las Plantas. The match was very even throughout, and had to be decided in extra chukka. Finally, Chateau D’Aulne’s Sebastián Harriott scored a penalty for the win.

Next up, the 10-goal category saw Dark Ice face Amanara. After a great comeback (they were 3 goals behind), Dark Ice took a 7-6 win. It was a great team performance, led by Juan Jauretche.
