La Dolfina Polo Team

The La Dolfina Polo Team was founded by Adolfo Cambiaso and Bartolomé Castagnola in 1997 and is one of the more successful polo teams in Argentina of the present. The other team members since 2005 are Lucas Monteverde and Mariano Aguerre[1].

The team has won the prestigious Argentine Open five times: 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009. Other won tournaments include the Hurlingham Open and the Jockey Club Open. After the Argentine Open 2007, the handicap of Lucas Monteverde was raised to 10, so La Dolfina is the only polo team with a perfect handicap of 40 at the moment. For the Argentine Open 2008, the expactations at the team for winning the Open again were understandably high[2], but the team was beaten in the finals by the Ellerstina Polo Team (Gonzalo Pieres, Facundo Pieres, Pablo McDonough, Juan Martin Nero) 12-13 because of a golden goal by Gonzalo Pieres in an extra-chukka.
