ALL THE ACTION FROM THE TWELFTH CARTIER INTERNATIONAL DUBAI POLO CHALLENGE
UNDER THE PATRONAGE OF HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, VicePresident and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the twelfth edition of the Cartier International Dubai Polo Challenge concluded last month with an 9-6 win for Zedan Polo. Their opponents in the final were Habtoor Polo, headed up by Mohammed Al Habtoor.
HRH Princess Haya presented the Cartier trophy to the Zedan team patrons Amr Zedan and Rashid Bin Drai. Cartier’s VIP guest, Alessandra Ambrosio, had earlier presented the La Martina Most Valuable Player of the Tournament Award to Habtoor Polo’s Santiago Gomez Romero. She also presented the Cartier Best Playing Pony Rug and a saddle to Mohammed Al Habtoor’s Sasha, which had been played by Habtoor Polo’s Tommy Iriarte.
