The Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club’s meet-and-greet at Cipriani was the picture of gentlemanly aspiration. Amid the ascots and classic cocktails, a quote attributed to wartime British leader Winston Churchill quote circulated like a mantra.
In Hong Kong to promote the Tianjin club’s upcoming international snow polo challenge – a five-day event starting on February 15 and the first of its kind on the mainland – Derek Reid certainly looked at home among the national team managers from Australia, Argentina, England, France and New Zealand, all peers from his competitive years with the Australian team.
Derek Reid will manage Hong Kong’s Goldin Team, made up of Chilean polo champion Jose Donoso, Malaysian-Chinese banker Chevy Beh, who has a handicap of three, and Englishman John Fisher (pictured right), who is also the director of stable operations at the club.
