Quest for the cup …the Royal Salute Jubilee Cup that is

Polo fans were in for a treat last weekend at the Greenwich Polo Club as what was described as a thrilling match for the USPA Royal Salute Jubilee Cup took place in front of a crowd that included the Duke of Argyll Torquil Campbell.

The duke hosted the event along with Greenwich resident Peter Brant, who established the club in 1981. The match reportedly drew the biggest crowd of the year at the club with more than 200 people in attendance.

 

Ultimately it was the Harry Winston polo team that won the match, squeaking by the Heathcote Polo team by a narrow 11-10 margin. After the game, the duke presented Bash Kazi, the patron of the winning team, with the inaugural Royal Salute Jubilee Cup, which is a specially crafted sterling silver and gilt whiskey tumbler. The winning team also got rewarded with a dram of Royal Salute 21 whiskey for a special post-match ceremony where the duke led a salute to the players and all their horses

And though his team fell short, Greenwich resident Steve Lefkowitz was presented with the Most Valuable Player award, a bespoke Scottish cashmere blazer.

The polo season is set to close this Saturday, Sept. 9, with the annual Greenwich Cup match where Mr. Brant’s team is expected to play. More information and tickets are available at Greenwichcup.com.
