Age: 39
Home Country: Brazil
Team: Postage Stamp
Handicap: 7
How many years playing the sport: I played my first tournament I when I was 11.
Pre-game ritual: I like to have everything organized the day before a match so when I get there it’s all ready to go. I like to get to the field with good music pumping to help me focus on the game.
You travel around the world for polo. Which destination has been your favorite? I love playing at Greenwich Polo Club and Sotogrande in Spain. The Hamptons are great too – I’ve played there quite a few times.
Favorite part of playing polo: I love the horses, and the game fascinates me. I can spend hours just watching polo.
Favorite local hang-out when playing at Greenwich Polo Club: Walking around Greenwich Ave or having coffee at The Red Barn just up the street from the polo fields.
Favorite thing to do when not on the field: Playing soccer!
Favorite song: “Na Bahia” (in Bahia) by Yvete Sangalo.
If I weren’t a polo player I would be: A polo player. I really can’t imagine being anything else but being a polo player!
Favorite all-time horse and why? Yupanqui is my best mare in the U.S., she is fast, stops, turns, and is easy to handle – she is a complete all around great horse. I’ve also admired Adolfo Cambiaso’s Cuartetera and Mariano Aguerre’s Jazz.
