The second day of the Argentine Open was held on a sunny Sunday with two thrilling matches. Cría Yatay, just like La Irenita, continue to seize every opportunity and have secured a spot in 2018 Triple Crown. This weekend saw them claim a third win this season.

Cría Yatay, with Lerin Zubiaurre back in the saddle, got off to a slow start against Chapaleufu (0-3 by the end of the first), but from the third chukka onwards they managed to control the game to claim an 18-8 win.

Next up, La Dolfina Polo Ranch and Alegria went head to head on ground 1. Fred Mannix's team had a fantastic match. La Dolfina PR also got into the swing of things, with Jejo Taranco making  his official Palermo debut. The match was an attractive one. Despite the 17-12 loss, La Dolfina PR proved they are ready for the big leagues.
