Polo Player Nacho Figueras Won't Be In the Hamptons This Year

nachoNacho Figueras won’t play polo on the East End this summer since the sport won’t return to Bridgehampton this season.
Bridgehampton Polo Club — founded 20 years ago by paper magnate and art collector Peter Brant and Black Watch Polo team owner Neil Hirsch — was shuttered after its perennial location at Two Trees Farm was sold.
Hamptons fixture Nacho instead has spent June in California, and played at the Happy Canyon Vineyards Wine and Polo Event in Santa Ynez. He then decamped with his family to St-Tropez.
Two Trees owners Jane and David Walentas recently divided up the property into private estates and sold a large portion in May.
The land is still usable for private or charity matches, or practice sessions.
Meanwhile, the Walentases and Brant were spotted last week at a Manhattan event for aspiring polo players hosted by Brant and the Greenwich Polo Club’s Luis Rinaldini, along with NYC Polo at Haviland Hollow’s Sam Ramirez, Mashomack Polo’s Bruce Colley and Meadowbrook Polo’s Bob Ceparano.
