The second matchdate of the 57th. Jockey Club Open Thai Polo Cup took place on Thursday September 15, at the AAP Headquarters, in Pilar. One of the most significant tournaments of the season in Argentina, the Jockey Club Open Thai Polo Cup precedes the much anticipated Argentine Triple Crown and is hosted by Harald Link’s organization, Thai Polo, with the support of Minuto 7 Polo and the Argentine Association of Polo.
As happened on the first day of competition, three matches were played, and Ellerstina Pilot, La Dolfina and Scone were victorious over La Aguada, La H and Monterosso, respectively. It is worth noting that Ellerstina Pilot remains as the only team yet unbeaten.
The 57th Jockey Club Open Thai Polo Club sees nine teams, between 26 and 31 goals, compete. Teams are split into three leagues.
