TOLITO OCAMPO

Jorge “Tolito” Fernandez Ocampo Jr. is a 6-goaler from Argentina. Ocampo began last season playing with Bill Ballhaus’s Beverly Polo team. Ocampo proved to be a standout player for Beverly Polo. After venturing into the arena at the Great Meadow Polo Club in Virginia, where he won Most Valuable Player in his first USPA arena tournament, Ocampo returned to outdoor play at the start of 2021 in Wellington in remarkable fashion, leading the team to victory in his first game out. The team made it to the final of the Joe Barry Memorial Cup before winning the coveted Ylvisaker Cup last season at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington. Hilario Figueras and Ocampo scored five goals each to lead Beverly Polo to the 15-11 victory over Palm Beach Equine in the Ylvisaker Cup final. wellington the magazine | january 2022
