The quarterfinals of the USPA Gold Cup, second leg of the Gauntlet of Polo, resumed on Sunday, as La Indiana beat Dutta Corp, before Las Monjitas defeated Patagones. The results mean that La Indiana and Las Monjitas (CV Whitney Cup winners) join Daily Racing Form and defending champions Pilot in the semifinals of the USPA Gold Cup, a tournament that saw fourteen 22-goal teams compete.
Due to rising health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations by the CDC and the White House to cease all gatherings of more than ten people, the USPA took the decision to immediately suspend all USPA Tournaments and Events, including the ongoing GAUNTLET OF POLO and the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship, for the next 14 days.
