Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

George H. Bostwick
Elected February 9, 1996

Versatility was George H. "Pete" Bostwick's middle name. When not playing a fast and slippery forward, he might have well been astride a world class steeplechase or negotiating obstacles in the show ring. Horses were his life to his very last day and he wouldn't have had it any other way.

His roots were at the famed Aiken Preparatory School and his talents attested to an eight-goal rating and a place of honor in the Racing Hall of Fame. He was a man of great initiative, too. "Polo for the Public" was his motto at the Bostwick Field on Long Island, and polo for a purse was also inaugurated there.

A much respected internationalist who represented the flag in the playing of the Cup of the Americas, Pete's name is engraved six times on the US Open Championship trophy and numerous other ones, too.
