Naylor founded the Sundowners Polo Club in 1919 and they were one of the founder members of the Argentine Polo Association, formed in 1922. A 7-handicap player, Naylor was a member of the Santa InÃ©s team that won the Argentine Open in 1922, 1924 and 1928. He was called up for the 1924 Olympics but played only in the final round-robin match which Argentina won 15-2 against France with the gold medal already secure. His other major success was in winning the Hurlingham Open in 1931.
