One more time as soccer continues to advance Polo keeps a tiny hold there by just a hair and Opening Day is Sunday the 5th of June and it will be another big one as Lyndsay and crew make it the biggest little show in Polo with huge crowds and 4 goal Polo it is party time so if your near join the party it will be as usual big time PARTY and so much Funnnnnnnn.
Santa Barbara goes into there third 12 goal of the season with the Engle and Volker brought to us by two Lady realtors from right here in town Elizabeth and Roberta last year and we have 6 now so an even draw and some new faces . Another Texan joins the draw Kevin Mokarow brings Mokarow Farms to the SB area with Rob Stenzel Joaquin Panelo and Todd Offen couple of Canadians joining this team also new this Month are the Magic Lady Leigh Brecheen and Team Film Finance taking over for HighWood but joining up with Gaston Von Wernich, Mariano Fassetta and Dan Walker at 11 goals .
11 AM Farmers and Merchants vs Film Finance
2 PM Twin Palms vs Mokarow Farms
4 PM Antelope vs Klentner Ranch
should be some good ones as Walker vs Walker in first one always good to watch and not sure if Young Charlie is back or not but might be ready and he will be hungry after a long break with a wing in the sling .
Twin Palms and Silent Chris look to add to there Title of the Pope and MF will get a taste of Polo without rain as these boys have seen more rain in the last 2 weeks than we have had in last 5 years.
Antelopes Geof Palmer looks to get the ship going straight to the trophy stand with young Gun Jimmy Wright facing a new Young Gun who showed he is on the move up the ladder Jake Klentner this should be fun to watch as last weeks semi seen Antelope escape in the last 2 minutes.
Across the Pond there are some big games on Sat. as they head to the Quarter finals of a very big one the Guards Queen Cup in the UK two familiar faces to SB meet on Sunday as Lyndon Lea a little banged up takes on Big Ben Solemani in the battle to the semis and Sat it is some 10 goal delight as AC and Dubai take on Pelon Stirling and HB POLO followed by a pair of 10’s the Piere’s Brothers and KING Power taking on 3 seven goaler’s with Sifani the final Quarter is La Bamba de Areco quite a title versus La Indiana so there will be some big time battles over yonder.
Back to the States it will be action at Will Rogers from Sunup to Sunset on 1 field like 18 chukkars a day but they have fun in Hollywood and then it if the rain stops maybe Polo in Texas and action continues in Aiken and starts in Greenwich as well, so plenty of Polo wherever you may be .
Some good news I hear Steve Orthwein is out and about so thats great to hear so just keep going forward and Bud Dardi is recuperating well up in the North and out of Phoneix Hospital and about ready to head to SB soon.
see ya @ POLO
