Guillermo Aguero

Age: 39 Home Country: Argentina and I’m an American Citizen now Team: Airstream Handicap: 6 How many years playing the sport: I started when I was a kid playing with my father and had my first tournament at age 14. Pre-game ritual: I don’t really have one. You travel around the world for polo. Which destination has been your favorite? International Polo Club and Greenwich Polo Club – I’ve been playing at both since almost the beginning of my career. Favorite part of playing polo: The whole game – it’s very exciting. Favorite local hang-out when playing at Greenwich Polo Club: I usually keep my horses near Mashomack Polo Club and end up hanging out near there. Favorite thing to do when not on the field: Talking and hanging out with the grooms – one of which is my wife, Rosario. We’ve been working together for six years and married for two. Favorite song: The song they played at my wedding “Mi Amor” by Dread Mar I. If I weren’t a polo player I would be: I love soccer so maybe I would be Lionel Messi! Favorite all-time horse and why? Daisy, a mare I’ve had since she was very young. She had a great career with me and was the only horse I’ve had that took a fall, two years ago. She recuperated and holds a special place in my heart. Daisy is 22 now and living a nice quiet life in retirement.
