Valiente Edges Out Tonkawa with a 9-6 Win
Style icons jockeyed with equestrian aficionados at the Ylvisaker Cup semifinal match on Sunday at the International Polo Club (IPC). Ladies and gents sported fashionable ensembles, and The Pavilion and stadium were a sea of green, pink, yellow, purple, and blue, blending in colorful harmony as beautiful as watching Adolfo Cambiaso on the field.
Stylish and high-fashion designer dresses, sassy kicks, and chic sunnies set the pace Sunday at the Lilly Pulitzer Patio, the Veuve Clicquot Airstream Lounge, and the exclusive Coco Polo Lounge for the lavish champagne brunch and polo experience. During the halftime divot stomp, the London Essentials serenaded fans with an eclectic, acoustical performance that elicited cheers from the crowd.
Valiente advanced into the Ylvisaker Cup semifinals with a 9-6 victory over Tonkawa on the Engel & Völkers Field. The world’s top player, Adolfo Cambiaso, displayed his skilled stickwork and scored five goals for Valiente, while Valiente’s 5-goaler Felipe Viana earned MVP honors, and Sebastian Merlos’ mare, Guitara, was named Best Playing Pony.
