The inaugural Las Vegas Polo Classic went off without a hitch at Star Nursery Field next to Sam Boyd Stadium. Champagne was sipped, divots were stomped, and several chukkers of the Game of Kings were played as a royally good time seemed to be had by all.
In addition to the sporting event, patrons enjoyed a runway show by the fashion house Grayse, led by the designer who created the enormously popular St. John knitwear collection. Grayse also set up a pop-up boutique in the “Polo Village,” where guests could browse and buy items ranging from Lucchese boots and sterling silver horse bit bracelets to a Range Rover or charter jet service with NVJets.
After two days of play, the UBS and Land Rover polo teams won one game each, and the Luxury Las Vegas team won two games. Well played indeed!
Polo America founder Randy Russell, who organized the event, said he was delighted with the turnout and said he looks forward to holding the event again in April 2019 and 2020.
