The Open du Soleil came to a fabulous end at Saint Tropez Polo Club with two spectacular finals and a special "La Nuit Argentine" themed Sunday Polo event. 
 
The 18-goal ADS Cup kicked off the day, with several high goal players, such as Polito Pieres, Joaquín Pittaluga, Jaime García Huidobro & Bautista Ortiz de Urbina, taking to the field alongside young up-and-coming players, like Nacho Kennedy. After a great showdown, ALFI Investments managed to claim the 8.5 - 8 win.
 
The 10-goal was up next, with the Argentine Foods Cup. Amanara had just fallen short in the final of the Cote D’Azur Cup, while their rivals, Los Nocheros, lost in this same final in 2016. The match was very even throughout the four chukkas, but Nicky Sen’s team came out on top (7-5) to take the title.
 
Many Argentine products, such as wines, meats, yerba mate, and chocolates, were on offer during the day, making the event particularly delicious!
 
The results of the day were as follows:
