In an intense polo season, the 18-goal USPA Butler Cup has being played at Porta Mayaca, a major competition that long ago outside of the subsidiary USPA Gold Cup, one of two high-goal tournaments leading up to the U.S. Open Polo Championship. In 2020, the Butler Handicap moved to Port Mayaca Polo Club. In a very intense final Old Hickory Bourbon defeated Postage Stamp Farm 12-9. The first half the teams were neck and neck, trading goals, and the lead, back and forth. After the third chukker, Postage Stamp led Old Hickory 5-4. But Old Hickory came into the second half on fire, scoring 6 unanswered field goals to lead going into the final chukker 10-5. A very high scoring last chukker- 2 for OHB and 4 for PSF- but still not enough for Postage Stamp. Old Hickory Bourton taking the win 12-9.

This was an especially exciting win for the Orthwein Family, as Steve Sr won the cup in 1975 and 1979, and Robert Orthwein won last year. Now Stevie will add his name to the trophy, as well.
