Audi appeared to be doing everything right through the first five chukkers of Sunday afternoon’s final of the 2016 C. V. Whitney Cup at the International Polo Club.

A heroic effort by Argentine 9-goaler Hilario Ulloa resulted in a game high eleven goals for Villa del Lago but it was the four young members of the Palm Beach Illustrated team that took the game with a goal in the final seven seconds of play of the final of the Joe Barry Memorial cup at the International Polo Club Friday afternoon.
