MANILA, Philippines - It’s that time of the year, when Manila’s social elites come together to relax, enjoy a good polo match and experience up close the best offering of Porsche Philippines—all in one day. This most anticipated event is the 10th Annual Enrique Zobel Memorial Polo Cup, which was held last 3 February 2013 at Manila Polo Club, Makati. The latest Porsche models were put on display at the main façade of Manila Polo Club for the entire week.

The game was opened by a ceremonial parade of horses with Ms. Rocio Zobel and PGA Cars Director Benedicto Coyiuto. This was followed by the Salute and ceremonial Ball Throw-in with Zobel Foundation Chairperson Mrs. Dee Zobel, Manila Polo Club President Roman Anthony Azanza, Jr., Benedicto Coyiuto and Porsche Philippines Managing Director Roberto Coyiuto III.

The High Goal Match, 6 Chukker game were played by the Porsche Blacks and Porsche Whites.  Making up the Porsche White team were Vince Bitong, Inigo Zobel, Santi Laborde and Mark Field.  The Porsche Blacks on the other hand, fielded Mike Romero, Lucas Lujan, Anthony Garcia and Miguel Diaz. All the players were vigorous and dynamic on the field. Each player exemplified good sportsmanship, honor and immense passion for the sport as they scrambled and swung their mallets to get a shot at the ball. Finally, scoring the most goals at the Umpire’s ending whistle was the winning team, Porsche Black.

The awards ceremony were officiated by Mrs. Dee Zobel, MPC president Ramon Azanza, Jr., Benedicto Coyiuto and Roberto Coyiuto III. The trophies were handed to the winners to the cheers and applause of friends, family and all other guests at the event.

The highlight of the day was when the Porsche Cayennes paraded on the polo field to end the game ceremonies. Spectators were delighted and charmed by the beauty of the premium models but their applause became louder as Porsche’s latest model, the Porsche Boxster S, slowly made its way to the field as the main highlight and was introduced by Porsche Asia Pacific Marketing Director Carl Isenbeck.

Guests were then invited to view the cars up close and enjoy a sumptuous buffet reception right on the field in celebration of the successful and merry event. After a decade, PGA Cars and the Enrique Zobel Foundation’s partnership has once again been fortified with the presentation of the Zobel Memorial Polo Cup.
