Grand Champions Polo Club announced its much-anticipated schedule for the upcoming fall season.
The club will host both medium goal and high goal leagues.
The medium goal schedule features six tournaments including the season-opening Tackeria Invitational, Sept. 30-Oct. 2. The tournament has a special place in club history as the inaugural tournament when the club first opened.
With sweeping views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline along the Hudson River shoreline, polo took center stage Saturday at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park.
On a sunny, summer day, an estimated record crowd of 10,000 watched Veuve Clicquot defeat the Liberty Comets, 9-7, in an exciting four-chukker exhibition match that went down to the final chukker.
The winning foursome of Delfina Blaquier, Lia Salvo, Nacho Figueras and Bill Ballhaus broke open a 6-6 tie in the final chukker to take the lead for good against the team of Melissa Ganzi, Ashley Van Metre Busch, Hilario Figueras and HH Sawai Maharaja Padmanabh Singh.
