August 2013

Facundo Pieres is on a run that is the envy of everyone in polo as he and his Ellerston teammates (Ali Paterson, Gonzalito Pieres, Facundo Pieres and John Williams) captured Spain's 2013 Silver Cup at the Santa Maria Polo Club Friday evening in a 13-11 win over Halcyon Gallery (Charlie Hanbury, Jota Chavanne, Guillermo Terrera and Max Routledge).

The victory was Facundo's fourth straight major win dating back to the Zacara win in the United States Open and following through Zacara's sweep of the high-goal season with wins in the Queens Cup and the British Open. Whether Facundo Pieres has the Midas touch this year or might well be determined in Santa Maria Polo Club's Gold Cup which begins competition today the 19th of August. Although the stick work of Facundo Pieres is a matter of fact, knowledgeable players gave the nod to his older brother Gonzalito in the final." Alex Webbe.
