ADS Securities Open Du Soleil 
(8-10 goals) & HIGH GOAL (15-18 goals)


It’s been a beautiful August at the Haras de Gassin. The Polo Club welcomed over 11 teams for the second tournament of the month.


Once again, as in the previous tournament, the same two teams advanced to the final of the High Goal tournament “ADS Securities Open du Soleil”. It was La Indiana that won the tournament against Ferne Park who lost by only half a goal. Final score: La Indiana 7.5 vs Ferne Park 7.

Best Playing Poney: Aran of Michael Bickford played by Bautista Ortiz de Urbina.

MVP: Bautista Ortiz de Urbina

Fair play : Lord Rothermere


In the late afternoon, the final of the Medium Goal followed. It was Helen Goddard-Watts’ team, TenderWorks,  that won the ADS Securities Open Du Soleil Medium Goal, following an extra chukka and the ‘sudden death’ rule. Tenderworks played against the Los Nocheros team with a final score of 7 to 6.

Best Playing Poney: Huella played by Juani Gonzales

MVP: Valentin Novillo Astrada

Fair Play: Helen Goddard-Watts


The very high level of both finals and the very tight scores highlight the competitiveness of the participating teams.


An elegant prize-giving ceremony offering  many trophies and prizes awaited the players and, with their hands full, the teams assembled on the terraces of Polo 1999.


Generous bottles of “Chateau D’Esclans” wine were centre stage on all the tables.

The Stefano Forever night could then finally begin. The cabaret transported players and guests to a universe of glitter, lights and pretty dancers.
