Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower

October 24, 2015

Last year the Scottsdale Polo Championships drew the biggest crowd in the country for a two-day polo event with over 12,000 fans, enjoying the four-match showdown. This year’s lineup features Polo Azteca vs. Club Cabo, the California Polo Club vs. Arizona’s own Polo Club and the reigning champions, the Clogau Wales Polo Team vs. Aspen Valley Polo Club. A Polo Clinic by some of the Valley’s top professional players will follow.

Attendees will also enjoy a sneak preview of the 2016 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and see some serious horsepower with a preview of the world-famous Barrett-Jackson 2016 Collector Car Auction and local car clubs lining the field. This year will also feature Larsen Gallery’s live Fine & Contemporary Art Auction, The Arizona Jazz Festival and the Phoenix Symphony!

It all gets started on Saturday, Oct. 25, when gates open at 11 a.m. The lineup features top world-professional female polo players like Sunny Hale, Sarah Wiseman and Paola Martinez, and the top gay polo player in the world, Caroline Anier, on the Women’s World All-Star Team. They will take on the event’s reigning champions, the Clogau Wales Polo Team, who has played with the likes Princes Charles, William and Harry. The Arizona Polo Club will also take on the Gay Polo League, the nation’s only organized gay sports league.

In addition to the world’s best polo, the event features a preview to the 2015 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction; a fashion show; a live art auction by Larsen Art Gallery; and a super-regional qualification event for the World Food Championships. All for one ticket price!
