The 46th International Polo Tournament in Sotogrande is the third Grand Slam polo event of the year: the high competitive value that distinguishes it, attracts the best players and the best teams in the world. The Sotogrande tournament is the fourth stage of the Maserati Polo Tour 2017 in collaboration with La Martina, after St Moritz, Dubai and Beaufort in the UK.
Venezuelan businessman and Lechuza Caracas patron Victor Vargas was awarded the best player trophy, while Marquita was named the best pony. Spanish top model Nieves Alvarez arrived at the Santa Maria Polo Club in a Maserati Ghibli and she said after the game: "I'm delighted to be here in Sotogrande again: I love horses and polo. It is a real privilege to hand over the Maserati Silver Cup to Victor Vargas and his team Lechuza Caracas after such a high octane match. Maserati and Polo share the same values: dedication, passion, performance and a quest for perfection, it’s a match made in heaven."
