Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Lester Armour, III
Elected February 26, 1999

Heralding the second flowering of American polo, Lester "Red" Armour, III rode mightily in the saddle, delighting the throngs of polo's new fans. An aggressive nine-goaler and powerful hitter, he anchored U.S.A.'s international teams in two Cup of the Americas, two victorious Camacho Cups, one heroically so, and a Coronation Cup.

Eager to help nurture a new generation of players and give to his sport, Red generously gave of his time, and took an active role in the USPA, including a Governorship and Chairmanship of the Handicap Committee.

Always a serious contender, Red has a U.S. Handicap, two Gold Cups, three Silver Cups and a North American Cup to his credit, along with countless other leagues and matches coast to coast.
