Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Roy M. Barry
Elected March 3, 1995

Seemingly effortless talent is what Roy M. Barry always projected. While a nine-goaler, he, with but a few others, held the mantle of America's best. Barry was the first family of polo for two decades, and Roy, more than any player of this time, personified the unique American style of polo in his day.

His shining moments were in representing his country twice in Americas' Cup against the invincible Argentina, and two victories, playing number three, against Britain in the Coronation Cup. He was also part of the US team against Mexico for the Comacho Cup.

Roy's ability and composure under fire earned him, amongst others, three US Open Championships, two Gold Cup and Butler Handicap titles each, as well as Twenty-Goal and North American Cup titles.
