Audi defeats Seminole Casino Coconut Creek to win the World Polo League

WELLINGTON – Audi won its second World Polo League title Sunday at windswept Grand Champions Polo Club.

The foursome of Marc Ganzi, brothers Jeta and Barto Castagnola and Paco de Narvaez broke open a close game in the fifth chukker to defeat Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (Melissa Ganzi, Gonzalito Pieres, Juan Martin Zubia and Alejandro Novillo Astrada), 13-9.

Audi finished the two-week, nine-team tournament undefeated with a 4-0 record. Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, the wild-card entry, finished 2-2.

In the WPL season-opening 26-goal All-Star Challenge tournament, Audi defeated White Birch (Chris Brant, 0, Lerin Zubiaurre, 7, Mariano Aguerre, 7, Santi Toccalino, 8), 17-12.

“It feels really good to win another tournament,” Ganzi said. “The team is functioning really well. Everyone played a long list of horses today, so now it’s about preserving the horses and making sure we can get to the next one and one more after that.”
