Valiente Defeats Zacara to Win USPA Piaget Gold Cup
By SENATUS News | 11 April 2013

In celebration of the final match of the sixth-annual Piaget Gold Cup tournament on Sunday, Piaget hosted an exclusive champagne reception at the International Polo Club, Palm Beach to introduce its Couture Précieuse collection of high jewellery. The 7th Chukker terrace was transformed into a glamorous couture lounge accented with David Downton fashion illustrations and fragrant bunches of Yves Piaget Roses.

Crafted in white gold and accented with diamonds, pearls and precious gemstones, Piaget’s newest collection features elegant motifs such as fans, ribbons and embroidery details taken from the Haute Couture. Along with the high jewellery, the House displayed a selection of its latest watches including the Altiplano 43mm—the world’s slimmest automatic watch, the new Gouverneur watch and two striking black-on-black Piaget Polo FortyFive watch models in ADLC-treated titanium.

Larry Boland, president of Piaget North America, hosted the afternoon’s festivities and was joined by Alain Riguidel, brand director of Piaget Latin America, Piaget polo ambassador, Jeff Hall, and his wife, Michelle Hall, along with polo champions Nic Roldan and Juan Bollini.

Arriving fresh off the field from her victory over ERG in the Butler Handicap, was Piaget polo team captain Melissa Ganzi, accompanied by her husband Marc.

Following the reception, guests were treated to the final match of the USPA Piaget Gold Cup tournament between Valiente and Zacara.

It was a heated competition amongst some of the world’s best polo players, including 10-goalers, Adolfo Cambiaso and Pelon Stirling from Valiente and Facundo Pieres from Zacara.

Ultimately, Valiente triumphed and defended their title with a 13 to 9 win. Larry Boland presented the highly sought-after Piaget Gold Cup to the match’s Most Valuable Player, Santi Torres, who scored a total of 7 goals. Pelon Stirling’s 10-year old brown mare, Silk, was named Best Playing Pony.
