Polo came home on Sunday when El Remanso took to the field to seal the deal against their rivals La Bamba and triumphantly lifted the The King of Power Gold Cup. Hurlingham Polo were delighted to be proud sponsors of the team kit which was designed exclusively for the team.
Regarded as one of the premier events on the polo sporting calendar, the event drew in 18,000 polo afficicionadoes from around the world to watch the first all British team become champions.
Having lost out in 2017 El Remanso had set their hopes high for this year’s final. Charlie Hanbury set the tone for the game scoring the first goal within the first 30 seconds and the pace just kept on going and going from there.
The first 3 chukkas flew by as the pace intensified and saw El Remanso extend their lead to 6-2. However, just before the half time whistle blew La Bamba came back strong with 2 goals in quick succession which brought them firmly back into the game.
Boosted by their pre half-time performance La Bamba seemed to step up their game in the second half and the drama escalated but by the end of 4th chukka, El Remanso kept their 2 goal lead with a score of 9-7.
As the 5th chukka commenced the play got even closer as the 2 teams were neck and neck. With 30 seconds left on the clock, the crowd held their breath as the final goal was scored by Cudmore to rapturous elation from the crowd. This final goal secured The King of Power Gold Cup for the El Ramenso team and they celebrated to chants of ‘It’s Coming Home’ that had spontaneously erupted from the jubilant crowd.
