On the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club: “Here you are in a different place. You are here like in heaven, like in paradise; a paradise in Earth. And something like this you can´t find it anywhere, with this beautiful hotel, with this beautiful out there. The grounds, the soil here, the 3 fields, 550 stables with about 600 horses a day. And this ground of polo here…excellent. Thanks also to all argentinian players and advisers, they are doing a great job here. And a lot of children are playing as well, beautiful. My sons (Mohammed Al Habtoor and Rashid Al Habtoor) and my grandchildren are all playing here, playing very well. You are in this place and you don’t think you are in the Middle East or Asia or else. There is no humidity, breezing, the weather is nice. You think you are somewhere else, I don’t know where. This is beautiful. We need some lakes now (laughs). Everything can be done here, is so beautiful”.
