Game On

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - News -

BAZAAR re­turned to the Royal Se­lan­gor Polo Club for the 2014 RMPA In­ter­na­tion­als, pre­sented by Visa In­fi­nite. Af­ter four tour­na­ments and 53 matches, in the fi­nal this year were Thai Polo and La Sarita, who had de­feated Ran­hill Polo, Royal Pa­hang, and Ko­taSAS-IBIL. Be­tween chukkas, spec­ta­tors sipped on cock­tails and took in the in­tri­ca­cies of Jaeger-LeCoul­tre’s lat­est time­pieces.

It was a game full of sus­pense, and Thai Polo ul­ti­mately tri­umphed over La Sarita 10-5. Most of the goals were scored by Car­los Pando and Raul Laplacette, both from Ar­gentina.

“It feels re­ally good to win,” says Ameer Jum­ab­hoy of La Sarita, who played for Thai Polo on be­half of Dato’ Har­ald Link as the lat­ter had just left for Eng­land. “A lit­tle bit emo­tional, be­cause I was play­ing against my dad and old team. But I’m glad to have played with Thai Polo. I’m happy we won, as it was a tougher game than it looked.”

Along with the tro­phy, win­ners walked away with cov­eta­bles from Royal Sa­lute, Sothys Homme, and Jaeger-LeCoul­tre, while cork-drop prizes in­cluded af­ter­noon tea and a night at The Ritz-Carl­ton, Kuala Lumpur.
