Adolfo Cambiaso is a living legend of world polo. And this Sunday he made history again by scoring goal number 1000 at the Argentine Open in Palermo in the match that his team, La Dolfina, played against La Irenita II, for the fifth round of the most prestigious tournament in the world of polo.
The story was written in the third chukker of the match played on court 2. It was for the 8-2 part of the Cañuelas team. And Cambiaso’s partner in the historical moment was the mare JM Delicia, bred by her teammate Juan Martín Nero.
The first goal he did playing for Ellerstina in 1992 on court 1 in a corner also on the arc of the board, as today, in a duel against Los Indios- It was the first of the 16 he scored in that match to collaborate with the triumph of his team by 23 to 7. And the first of the 45 with which that edition of the Argentine Open ended, in which General Rodríguez’s team ended up losing the title by falling in the final against Chapaleufú Indians por 19 a 13.

The 500, meanwhile, had scored against The Aguada. The edition in which he scored the most was in 1998, still wearing Ellerstina’s shirt and sharing a team with Mariano aguerre, Gonzalo Pieres (father of the current stars of the “Z”) and Bartolomé Castagnola. That year he scored 67 goals – a record in tournament history – and ended up lifting the trophy.
This year he arrived in Palermo with a mark of 981 goals, which he extended to 996 after converting 15 goals in the 20-11 over La Irenita in the debut. Thus, it was four of the shocking round number. The 16-time champion at the Argentine Open has already scored more than 400 goals from the retired players Eduardo Y Bautista Heguy Y Facundo Pieres, the great figure of his nemesis Ellerstina.
This Sunday, he added two more in the first chukker of the duel against La Irenita II for Zone A. He scored one more in the second chapter. And in the third, came the goal shout number 1,000, after receiving the ball from David Stirling, face the goal alone and score for the partial triumph of La Dolfina.
The Cañuelas team – which after playing the Tortugas and Hurlingham Opens with alternative formations due to injuries, returned in Palermo to their 40-goal quartet – ended up winning the match 24 to 9. And Cambiaso scored a total of 12, to leave his impressive record of 1,008 goals.
