"Four brothers – Jim, Bob, Geoff and Phil Ashton – hatched an impetuous plan to take on the English and American polo worlds, then in their golden ages and at the height of their glamour. Their father, James Ashton - pioneer and self-made man - and their mother, Helen, an artistic Anglican minister’s daughter, joined their enterprise. It became a make-or-break family affair: the Ashtons – and Australia - take on the world." - The Four Hourseman
