Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Walter Ray Harrington, Jr.
Elected March 18, 1993

A native of Texas, Ray Harrington, Jr. knew a saddle as a child, but did not begin playing polo until he was in his twenties. Still, this late start did not prevent him from attaining an eight-goal rating which he held for thirteen years. He soon acquired the reputation as one of the finest players of his day.

A superb horseman and an enviably agile player, Ray, "Mr. Inside-Out", matched his talents with true sportsmanlike conduct on and off the playing field.

His record of seven US Open Championships stood unbroken for many years, and he still co-holds the record for four consecutive victories. Eight Twenty-Goal championships, two Monty Waterbury, titles, a place on the 1969 Cup of the Americas team, and many other trophies are his testimony to greatness.
