Age: 26
Home Country: Argentina
Team: Goose Creek
How many years playing the sport: I’ve been playing since I was five years old! I played my first tournament when I was six and I haven’t stopped since then.
Handicap: 6 in Argentina and 4 in the U.S.
Pre-game ritual: I change them every season and they also depend on what country I am in. If they work I keep them and if I lose a game, I change them.
You travel around the world for polo. Which destination has been your favorite? My favorite place to play has been the Hamptons.
Favorite part of playing polo: My favorite part is winning!
Favorite local hang-out when playing at Greenwich Polo Club: I haven’t played here recently so I don’t have one yet… but I’m working on it.
Favorite thing to do when not on the field: I love to be around my horses, whether they are old or young. I also love to watch and play soccer. My favorite team is River Plate which is a team in Argentina.
Favorite song: “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zepplin.
If I weren’t a polo player I would be: A rock star!
Favorite all-time horse and why? Open Fachera. I bought her in Ellerstina, Argentina many years ago when she was really young. She was the best mare I have ever had. She was very fast, very powerful, she had a very good mouth and she was always ready to go whenever I needed her. She passed away last year but luckily she left a lot of foals back home.
