About Adolfo Cambiaso 

Adolfo Cambiaso is widely known by his nickname Adolfito.

He was encouraged along with his half brothers from a young age to play Polo by his mother. Her mother's name is Martina De Estrada Lainez.

The zodiac sign of the famous Polo player from Argentina is Aries. The Argentine player had always thought of becoming a Polo player. He had this obsession from his early childhood days. He went on to become one of the finest Polo players that the world has ever seen.

From 1990-1994, he traveled abroad frequently, leading him to win 24 tournaments for teams like La Martina, Ellerston White, and many more. He competed in Argentina, England, and the USA for these tournaments. In 1994 he bagged the Triple Corona (Argentine Open, Hurlingham Open, Tortugas Cup) with Ellerstina. This boosted his handicap rating to 10 goals, making him the youngest player ever to attain this.

He also chose to play for the Dubai team in England at the same time. In the coming years, Adolfo Cambiaso's team La Dolfina sustained its dominance by winning the Argentine Open in 2005, 2006, and 2007. His team defeated Ellerstina Open in 2005 by 20-19, being the highest ever recorded in an Argentine Open Final match.

After maintaining his winning streak by playing marvelously for the Dubai team in England, he also joined the Crab Orchard team in the USA. He won the US Open and the USPA gold cup here.

The Argentine player also became a pioneer of the horse cloning business at the age of 25. He has approximately 1000 horses on his farms. One of his finest polo ponies was Aiken Kura. In the 2006 Argentine Open, the horse suffered some serious injuries. The injury happened in the extra chukka. The horse ambulance had to be called and the injuries forced the early retirement of Aiken Kura. Due to severe complications, Kura had to be euthanized in 2007. The skin cells of the animal were harvested for cloning.

Texan Alan Meeker of Crestview Genetics and a fellow Polo enthusiast approached Adolfo regarding cloning. In 2010, they produced their first clone. Ernesto Gutiérrez, the Argentine tycoon, and the biologist Dr. Adrian Mutto successfully cloned the 17-year-old mare Cuartetera. They did it multiple times. In 2017, Cambiaso rode one of these clones to win the Argentine Open.

Of all of his horses, the most noteworthy were La Osa, Lilli, Illusion, Sospechosa, and his most dear Colibri. Bruma, Mambo, and Dolfina Curtetera were his worldwide recognized horses. However, his best horses included Mare Romana, and the Stallion Boeing, famously known as the American Pharaoh of the Polo universe.

In 2008, Adolfo's Polo team La Dolfina lost in the finals to Ellerstina over a score of 12-13. This was after the golden goal in the extra time by Gonzalo Pieres.
