Greenwich, Conn. – Aug. 1, 2019 – The first-ever American Cup at Greenwich Polo Club had players and spectators holding their breath until the final whistle. After cruising through a four-team penalty shoot-out, Postage Stamp Farm and Reelay punched their tickets to the final match. Reelay came out of the gates strong with an early 4-0 lead, thanks to first-chukker goals by Will Tomita and Mariano Gonzalez, but nothing broke Postage Stamp Farm’s determination. After rallying in the second half to level the game at 8-8 going into the final minute, it all came down to the last toss-in at center field. With the score tied, Postage Stamp Farm’s Tomas Garcia Del Rio made a breakaway to score the winning goal. This 9-8 victory by Postage Stamp Farm etches the first ever name onto the American Cup, and we look forward to many more. The MVP went to Martin Gandara, while Best Playing Pony was Ciudadana, played by Tomas Garcia del Rio. Thank you to all players, fans, and sponsors for an amazing tournament.
