Valiente Edges Out Tonkawa 9-6 In Ylvisaker Cup Action At IPC

Style icons jockeyed with equestrian aficionados at the Ylvisaker Cup match on Sunday, Feb. 21 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach.

Ladies and gents sported fashionable ensembles, blending in colorful harmony as beautiful as watching polo superstar Adolfo Cambiaso on the field.

Stylish and high-fashion designer dresses, sassy kicks and chic sunnies set the pace 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 Engel & Völkers Field. The world’s top player, 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.
