We at WAG always feel as if we’re behind the eight ball with our holiday plans and shopping. So we thought we’d get a jump on dad’s special day with a column devoted to all the good things you can give and do with him.
There are few better ways to celebrate Father’s Day – or indeed the entire summer – than at Greenwich Polo Club, where the field is vast, the horses and riders – including America’s top-rated Nic Roldan and Argentina’s Toro Ruiz and Lerin Zubiaurre – are fast and the Veuve Clicquot Champagne and bourbon cocktails flow along with the easy conversations and laughter. The club – founded in 1981 by businessman, collector and arts advocate Peter Brant – reopens to the public June 6 with the Bronze Cup, which concludes June 13. Then it’s the Silver Cup (June 20 and 27), polo’s American Gold Cup (July 11, 18 and 25) and the East Coast Open (Aug. 29 and Sept. 5 and 12).
The gates open at 1 p.m. for 3 p.m. matches. Tickets are car passes and begin at $40. For more, visit greenwichpoloclub.com.
