Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Stephen M. Gose
Elected February 7, 1997

Any sport will judge itself fortunate to have a friend like Stephen Gose even once in a generation. An amateur who epitomized sportsmanship, he fielded numerous US Open teams, built Retama Center, the largest polo club in its day, and single-handedly, with labor, funds and horses, made the dream of another Cup of the Americas a memorable reality.

For Steve, polo was a family affair and indeed, all who came into his presence felt like family. A superbly mounted and eager competitor, he no less equated winning with seeing others prosper.

Three US Open Championships, two Gold Cup and three Silver Cup titles, along with the Chairman and Inter-Circuit among other titles, merely cap the eternal gratitude that polo owes him.
