Wellington Polo: Late Carlos Gracida’s Team wins USPA Sieber Memorial Tournament

Catamount won the USPA 12-goal Sieber Memorial Tournament with a narrow 12-11 overtime victory over Palm Beach Equine at Grand Champions Polo Club on Saturday, March 02.

Carlos Gracida was due to play the Wellington polo final but his sudden tragic passing saw his two sons, Carlitos and Mariano, join the team in his honor alongside patron Scott Devon and Chris Nevins against Palm Beach Equine’s Agustin Arellano, Juan Bollini, Luis Escobar and Scott Swerdlin.
