On Wednesday 11/2 on Court 2 of Pilar, at the start of Zone B of the 129th HSBC Argentine Polo Open, La Dolfina Saudi , recent winner of the 129th Hurlingham RUS Open presented by Imperial, won 15-7 to La Esquina , a group from the classification.
On a historic day, not only because the AAP celebrates its 100 years of life, but also because it was the debut of Adolfito and his son Poroto playing together in the HSBC Argentine Polo Open, La Dolfina managed the process discreetly and with good goals of father and son, they achieved a clear victory over La Esquina, which was very strong in the brand in the first three sets, with Iñaki Laprida as its best value on the day.
