The draw of the CV Whitney Cup has been conducted

The draw of the upcoming CV Whitney Cup took place on Monday January 31. The CV Whitney Cup is the opening tournament of the 22-goal Gauntlet of Polo hosted by International Polo Club Palm Beach.

The CV Whitney Cup will kickoff on Sunday February 6 and the final is due on Sunday February 27. The tournament will see nine teams battling for the title, among them, the current reigning champions, Park Place.

Originally known as the U.S. Handicap, the C.V. Whitney Cup was played for the first time in 1979 by handicap, in conjunction with the U.S. Open, at Retama Polo Center in San Antonio, Texas. Nine years later, in 1988, the tournament was renamed for C.V. Whitney Cup, as a tribute to Cornelius Vanderbilt “Sonny” Whitney, an avid polo player and three-time winner of the U.S. Open in 1928, 1937 and 1938, and son of 10-goal Hall of Famer Harry Payne Whitney.
