Team Dr. A, composed of Dr. Abdelrraman Abbar, Daniel Gariador, Maximiliano Malacalza and Santiago Laborde, was consecrated champion of the XXIV edition of Memorial Founder Enrique Zobel, organized by the Santa Maria Polo Club and that is one of his appointments Classic of the summer season. Don Enrique Zobel was a passionate practitioner of the pole, whose entrepreneurial character and love for this sport led him to build in 1964 the first floor of Sotogrande, called ‘La Playa’.
Dr. A won the trophy after winning an emotional end to Equus by 10 to 8 in a match that was disputed in the field 2 of the Ayala Polo Club. Jolly Rogers also took third place by beating La Mangosta 11 to 7.5. The quartet of Dr. A thus adds its second title of the season of Medium Handicap organized by the Santa Maria Polo Club having also obtained, weeks ago, the Memorial Doña Maria de las Mercedes.
Daniel Gariador, Maximiliano Malacalza and Santiago Laborde deserve special mention, along with the teams of Dr. A and Ayala Polo Team have all the trophies of Mediano Handicap that have been played to date at the Santa Maria Polo Club. The formation of Dr. A won in Memorial Zobel and Memorial Doña María de las Mercedes, while Ayala Polo Team won the Patrick Guerrand Hermès Cup and the Jerez Cup in its 2017 editions.
