Deauville: Brittany won his first Coupe d'Or


The Barrière Deauville Polo Cup, with its legendary Gold Cup, has been an emblematic stage of the international circuit for three-quarters of a century. The Deauville International Polo Club and its mythical grounds in the heart of the Deauville-La Touques racecourse hosted in their main the main tournament, the Gold Cup, five strong teams made up of French and Spanish players and great Argentinean professionals.

The two most prestigious French polo teams faced each other this afternoon in the final of the Marta & Lucien Barrière Gold Cup: the team from La Baule, Brittany Polo Club and the local team, Talandracas, already six times winner of this Coupe d’Or.
