Jodhpur I took on Mundota for the Yuvraj Shivraj Singh of Jodhpur Plate, which resulted in an honorable draw. The cup was awarded by Bruno Gregolin of VistaJet and His Highness the Maharajah of Jodhpur. The last night was marked by a gala dinner on the lawns of the Umaid Bawan Palace hosted by His Highness Gaj Singh II Maharajah of Marwar—Jodhpur. Just over $48,000 was raised for Head Injuries Through Sport, a charity close to the heart of British Polo Day. The auction takings were greatly assisted by the sale of a Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface watch engraved with the coat of arms of Marwar-Jodhpur, which went under the hammer for $18,000.

British business continues to prosper in India, and myself and Chairman Tom Hudson are delighted that British Polo Day can be a part of this success story."
