One of the most prestigious and renowned events of the British sporting calendar, hosted by Laurent Feniou, Managing Director Cartier Ltd, watched alongside a strong crowd of polo aficionados and illustrious guests, was played out on Sunday. The summit of the day was the exhilarating play for the Queen’s Cup between Ben Soleimani’s RH Polo and Michael Bickford’s La Indiana.

RH Polo, featuring the World’s Number One Player, Adolfo Cambiaso, who was looking for his 10th Queen’s Cup victory, started strongly and were 6-3 ahead at half-time. Although it was Cambiaso’s team-mate, 21-year-old Tommy Beresford, later named the Cartier Most Valuable Player, who stood out in this game, playing with a maturity well beyond his years and handicap.

La Indiana were equally competitive, but failed to convert some beautiful play into goals. That changed in the second half, with Agustin Merlos and Nic Roldan scoring five goals in as many minutes, giving La Indiana the lead for the first time. But Cambiaso, who has been inspired in this year’s tournament playing for a new patron, kept his cool as the clock counted down and fired through the winning shot as the bell rang out to mark the end of the match. One of Cambiaso’s impressive string of ponies, Caraquenia, was later named Cartier Best Playing Pony.
