Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Stewart Iglehart
Elected April 6, 1990

Stewart Iglehart began his career on the old Aiken team which won eleven tournaments over a four-year period, before any of its members reached twenty-one years of age. This same team in 1931 defeated the Argentine Santa Paula Team which later that season won the U.S. Open Championship. He was a five-time winner of the Open Championship and represented America on four occasions versus England and Mexico. He also won the Indoor Polo Open Championship twice.

He was a brilliant ten goal player who was always known for his tactical finesse, great anticipation and teamwork. At the #3 position, he had the uncanny ability to turn the play and stay one stride ahead of the opposition. By his own play, he could inspire teammates to perform beyond their usual capabilities.
