Inductee to the Polo Hall of Fame

Foxhall P. Keene
Elected March 20, 1992

Foxhall Keene began his polo career as a boy at Newport, Rhode Island and at the Rockaway Hunt Club, New York. He played on the American Team in the first Westchester Cup matches vs. England in 1886 at the age of sixteen.

In 1929, Newell Bent in his book, American Polo, wrote of him.."Mr. Keene was a very brilliant and finished No. 3 and his play both in England and America was so outstanding over so many years, that he was long considered above all other polo players in this country. Handicapped from 1888 to 1918-fourteen years at ten goals and sixteen years at nine goals-with never a man handicapped above him and for eight years standing alone at the head of the handicap list, is Mr. Keene's long record at polo play.
