Crack: We count down the world’s Top 10 polo players in the new issue of InvestBA Privada.

If the Argentina polo season were a sleek black 333-horsepower Audi Q7 3.0 TFSI, it would be easing into the left lane today and flooring it. That’s because the final of the first jewel of the Triple Crown will be contested this afternoon at the Tortugas Country Club, and the matchup is one of superlatives.

Adolfo Cambiaso (10) and La Dolfina Dubai will take on Gonzalo and Facundo Pieres (10, 10) and Ellerstina Etiqueta Negra in today’s final at 16:00 local time. When eight of the world’s greatest polo players take the field, some 2010 teammates will square off against each other given the off-season team shuffling. La Dolfina’s Juan Martin Nero (10) told La Nacion it will feel strange to play against Gonzalo and Facu but “I have no doubts it will be a fun, clean match.”

And when the dust settles this afternoon at Tortugas and the champions are crowned, the Audi Q7 won’t slow down at all. Hurlingham, the world’s oldest polo tournament and the second jewel in the Triple Crown begins on Tuesday. A beautiful new promotional video for the 118th edition of Hurlingham will definitely give you high-goal fever. And if you’re not able to attend the matches, fear not. ESPN will live webcast today’s final and the remaining matches in the Triple Corona.
