Meet the Pros
A 10-year veteran of the game, Vero Beach native Tiffany Busch was introduced to polo through her father Peter Busch of Anheuser-Busch fame and has since grown to become one of the most respected icons in women’s polo today. “I was ‘born’ in a saddle and started playing competitively when I was 17 while watching my dad play,” said Tiffany of her father’s team, Michelob Ultra, for which she played while rising to the top of the women’s rankings with fierce determination and natural talent. Supported by an ever-growing string of horses, she brings her unique style and competitive spirit to the field in every game she plays. Her dedication and professionalism is an inspiration to young girls especially. A highlight of her playing career was securing the overtime win in the 2012 Women’s US Open in Houston, Texas and being named MVP of the tournament. This win lead to her being featured on the cover of Polo Magazine’s January 2013. In addition to polo’s return to her hometown of Vero Beach, the accomplished St. Edwards school alum is especially enthusiastic about joining the trio of polo players representing BG Vero Beach Polo Club’s management team. “I’m looking forward to what promises to be an incredible season ahead.”
A veteran player and teacher with an impressive four goal rating, Argentina’s Gaston Rodriguez is a respected member of the polo community. He is also a well-respected teacher of the sport and innovator behind the development of polo programs throughout the world that cater to novices as well as seasoned professionals. In addition, Gaston has been a beloved fixture in the Vero Beach area where he and distinguished Patron Charlie Replogle successfully lead the Ocean Grill team to numerous wins. “It is an honor and a pleasure to play polo in Vero. The fans, the fields, the support we have received from the Vero Beach Polo Club, it’s a tremendous tribute to the value and appreciation of this incredible sport.”
