South America wins St. Regis International Cup at Cowdray
Nacho Figueras injured during match against England
The Cowdray Park Polo Club hosted the St. Regis International Cup last Saturday (May 18th), with two 26-goal foursomes representing England and South America in action.
The team headed by Facundo Pieres won the match 11-9, with Ignacio Figueras, Alejandro Muzzio and Silvestre Grahn also part of the winning team’s line-up. England in turn was represented by Luke Tomlinson, James Beim, Max Charlton and James Harper.
Apart from action itself, there was bad news concerning Argentina’s ‘Nacho’ Figueras, who fell from his horse during the second chukker and had to be rushed to hospital after being attended to on the field by the paramedics.
Figueras, captain of the South America team, was diagnosed with a fractured hip, which means he will be out of action during several months.
During the rest of the match, the model and polo player was replaced by Bautista Sorsana.
