On Sunday, 19th February, 2012 Palm Beach Polo Club held a 40-goal charity tournament: the Outback Challenge. For 11 years, all benefits from this tournament have been transferred to Polo Players Inc., a fund dedicated to support sick or injured polo players. Eight from the best players in the World participated to the 2012 edition.
To this occasion, Eduardo was playing with Facundo Pieres, Pelon Stirling and Gonzalo Pieres in a team called Equus&co. They took the lead rapidly, and kept their advantage until the end of the game. The opposing team could not respond to the impressive pace proposed by Equus&co. At the end of the day, Eduardo and his team had an advantage of two goals, winning by 11 to 9, after a thrilling game.
Long-time friend of Jaeger-LeCoultre brand, Eduardo Novillo Astrada was extremely happy: “That was such an incredible game! We always play against each other during the year and this was an opportunity to be and play together. We all had a lot of fun, and it is great to do it for a good cause. The crowd was very supportive as well; they cheered us all the way. It was a lot of fun!”
Currently playing in Florida for the spring season with his regular team Las Monjitas, Eduardo and the Novillo Astrada brotherhood will play the prestigious USPA Gold Cup beginning of March 2012.
