The Van Metre family is sad to announce the death of our long time family friend, Carlos Gracida. Carlos was one of the most accomplished players in the history of polo and a strong supporter of the Van Metre Polo Cup. He died on the field during a match in Wellington after a fall from his horse. He was 53.
The Van Metre family was very blessed to have known Carlos and call him our friend. He was a true legend in polo, and a legend never dies.
Our love and prayers go out to his entire family.
