Out and About

Glamour in the Snow

The most glamorous event of the Moscow winter season was the Rolex Snow Polo Cup, which took place at Otrada Equestrian Centre, Moscow on 25 February 2007. Organised by Eventica in association with the Russian Polo Club, and sponsored by Rolex and Land Rover, the event drew a crowd of hundreds. The first game of the day was the fight for third place, which was won by Rolex after a worthy battle on the snow with the competing Brioni and Mildberry teams. The final took place after lunch: spectators were treated to a stunning match, with the eventual champions, the Kauffman team, beating the extremely accomplished Land Rover side, by 13 goals to 7. As is always the case with polo, in many ways the social aspect of the game is just as exciting as the sport itself - and the Rolex Snow Polo Cup was certainly a place to see and be seen.

The Kauffman team were champions, and seen here holding aloft their trophies are, L_R, Adolfo Casabal, team captain Rodianko and David Geovanis
