Age: 30
Home Country: Argentina
Team: White Birch
Handicap: 9
How many years playing the sport: I started at 5 or 6 – when I was old enough to lift a mallet! I started playing professionally around 16 or 17.
Pre-game ritual: I don’t have one.
You travel around the world for polo. Which destination has been your favorite? Santa Barbara.
Favorite part of playing polo: The horses, the barn and the atmosphere of playing with friends.
Favorite local hang-out when playing at Greenwich Polo Club: I like going to dinner at Capriccio in Stamford.
Favorite thing to do when not on the field: I have my hands full with my wife and two young daughters – they keep me busy off the field and I love spending time with them. I also like perfecting my Truco game.
Favorite song: I don’t have one.
If I weren’t a polo player I would be: A soccer player would be fun, but definitely something on a farm because I love horses and they will always be a part of my life.
Favorite all-time horse and why? Nape. He’s never missed a chukker and has been with me throughout much of my career.
